I saw you today

I saw you today

I saw you today
It took me a monument
to realize it was you

Fresh as
If it was my first hello
Smooth
As water on a slip’n slide

I was back there
The days of
Simplicity and quiet gazes

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I’m enamored
by your ability to hold me
Without ever reaching out

Yet;
Saddened by your ability
to set fire to a room
You never intended
To be in

You never owned your
Dysfunction,
you collected glitter
and wore it as
your charmed life,
rolled though me
Like a hurricane party
on nitro

You know
One day
You would be
Standing
In the place, that space
Only you would fill
Only you could fill

That day came
It was here
Before us
Playing out
Like it did
In my mind

No disappointment
No resentment
Oddly
It was joy

I saw you today,

No questions
No answers, either

My knee jerk reaction
Wanted to know you again
My past told me I already did.

I saw you, today.

Solids vs. Liquids

How can i convey
My true intent

When daily

I am out witted by your beguiling liquid
Diet

Bitter taste
Sublime
Malignant
Subversive

Day in
Day out
Sunset
Moonlight
Sunrise
Afternoon delight

Love in spite
Of love
Become
Destain

Careful
Movement
Forward
Freeing

Breathing
Without
Inhaling
Will
Encapsulate
You
Drown
You

Leaving me to question
My true existence
My true intent

daily
Ever
Sublime
Benign

Day in
Day out

Life

Another day I did not use algebra

….because,

some words, are harmful.
some words, are peaceful
some words, are unheard

these word must be read.

somedays are longer that others. the length of time is relative only to the minds in ability the release the unattainable love we seek.

we are awashed in stories,

tell us words that seek

….approval, not by a long shot.

somewhere in our human existence we equate approval with love.

the very definition of the word only leaves a yes or no outcome. no algebra needed.

just a clear bright sky to be there when the soul decides to offer up the ever elusive reasons for why it held out so long.

the x equals A. the y equals B and the total sums equals u

Collard greens and turkey wings ….

I see you
Even
When the miles
Defy
Such a notion

I know you less than your best friend,
Yet I hurt equally

Years of distance from our first meeting to our most recent interaction, which in it’s self
Stands as recent as today

20 plus zip codes between your
Address and mine, will not, can not
Reduce how many times
You cross my mind , stay on my mind.

Charismatic, Witt and happy hour charm,

is just surface …

I met you when I needed too.
Collard greens and turkey wings ….

Under the same sky

Friday was just a Friday
Then along came you
Then Friday became my everyday

Everyday was Friday
When you were in my realm
Everything was possible
Then along came the real you
Then everyday became my Monday

One Sunday
One day
You will slow down
And realize
How much
Your everyday
Is as empty as my
Monday

Movement leaves you in silence

I see you
Like no other
Gave you my heart
Before I met you
Because I knew you
In a time before you saw me

Words have hurt you
As if a knife
Cut through your life
From a day in a year
So muddled by
Indecision

The sounds of
Your cries kept me awake
So many nights

And I see you
Like no other
Gave you my heart
Before I met you
I knew you
In a time before you saw me

Exposed by mortal flaws
Inclined to settle
removed from the site of the wounds
Dual betrayal
Stillness leaves you looking for sound
Movement leaves you in silence

All of which led you to
This side of that midnight

When
it was too late to leave
And too early to stay

Yes, I do see you
Like no other
Gave you my heart
Before I met you
Because I knew you
In a time before you saw me

Father’s Day

…. Feel it because its that week-end when everybody’s wishing wishes to everybody’s father but there own. It’s because your own wish is that your father is one of a kind.

A man of his word.
A person who’s life is a man among men.

One the legends were spoken.

A day that seem like more than a week-end. It’s a moment that last longer than his life time, because your still here, wishing he was here too. It one tough ass week-end.

Much love to you dear heart.

Town

How did I get here
What precipitated this reality
Can
I see it
Feel it
Touch it
Will I recognize it
Would I understand it

What was it
That got me this far
Only to fall
To trip
Throw out
My conscience
Living against the wind
Standing still
As the tide rolls in

I will not chase it
I cannot embrace it
Would I leave it
Now that it’s here before me

Left
still
Unanswered
And alone
Walk Till the moonlight fades
into daylight

Left in
Darkness
Awakened by the known
who stands before me

This town
My town
Changed me, yes it has

Breathe in
Breathe out
Live
Embrace
Accept the given
Nurture the known

How Did i get here
Is it because
I’ve grown
Into it
Or it grown into me
This town I call home

Hug and a prayer. Building my life one friend at a time

It’s larger than you can imagine. The space a friendship can occupy. It spans beyond time, borders and logic. It’s a love affair of the soul. A Paradigm, a level that you can only reach through unmatched certainty, trust , few have known. My Friendships do define me. friends
