MERRY-GO-PENDULUM

From the darkness of searching caves for waves I have raised my face towards the reflection in waterfalls silently speaking to walls openly weeping hacha y machete targets swiped by in swinging clearing the road steering on not one closed for the truth neither is secret when a life becomes known such as tales as dim as this…

All for a kiss
All for its bliss
It’s no wonder no one knew about this

It’s too deep of a secret
We couldn’t even keep it
Afraid someone would peep it
And seep it.

The bubble deflates

We wake to the day of rage for daring to stage our coauthored play
I never heard all you had to say
You never heard all I could have said
We never truly could find a bed
That didn’t hold love developed into 1 Soul and Flesh

The unlocking of senses
Creators of memories viewed as quite senseless
Blowing in winds off Mount Forget
It’s easy when you take it for what it is.

Find me for answers not inquiries Love you for lives quite easily
Okay with goodbye reluctantly
Facing the door with pure bravery

Accepting the truth cannot be a lie wholeheartedly

Not looking back at hearts breaking
Praying hearts will be whole upon awakenings

That our story told be Inspiring.

Which in the end was a dream that could not be. Or perhaps a fantasy? Or two strangers just enjoying company. Or kin in a time of creating worlds speaking through beauty. Or mirrors purging demons as duty. We’ll never know now will we? Or will we? Or did we?
