The Walk

Grey light flowing from the glimmer of an alien moon. I walk in the darkness under trees which sing when the wind blows. One foot in front of the other I become something the past would not blink to see. Waves of life pass over my face as the strings of fate softly sound in the distance.

Oh love of my life
How hast thou become my enemy
Take quickly thy blade & plunge it into my heart
that I may rest from this wicked pain

Forever may I lay amongst thoughts of thee
In the heavens of golden fields
& hear the gods whisper your name
so heavenly into mine ear.

Pain
It spills upon my heart a poisonous substance
I drank of it out of love
Foolishness.

Touch

Soft form lay upon my body
Golden eyes of heaven staring into my soul
Heavenly union where two become one.

Love Wax (Quatrain, ABAB)

night-couple-kissing-wallpapers
My heart a wax that melts from your sensuality,
Your lips speak ecstasy that touches a deep space,
A touch so heavenly with combustible sexuality,
Hearts skipping beats trying to keep up the pace.

Unveiled (Dante Style Sonnet using Hendecasyllables for the Sestets)

Soft silk fluttering abstract forms of her
Brunette ocean of hair moving as a free aether
What had come from above met what was below
A sparkle of light whispering in dark low
A wisp of spirit hovering above glow
Seeing light for the first time as a glimmer

A slanted eye confronted with ample flaw
To pause a tear between a raindrop to fall
Hollow voice to whisper a tale of dark lies
About fiery waves of infinite guise
That don’t confuse the mind of the sightless wise
Who view nothing gained & nothing lost as ALL

Darkness & light playing the roles
An infinite play with light as confusion
A jumble of desires that structure illusions
Perceptions  of mind that project a soul

Existence there is beyond what is named
Unknowable behind barriers of mind
The mind a container & we the consigned
Burst through illusion to witness the frame.

** Structure AABBBA AABBBA CDDC CDDC
**I did my best with the Hendecasyllables within the sestets  lol this one was a great challenge. I don’t think I’ve worked this hard on a sonnet since my college years. I humbly say thank you for reading & showing support for my work. Be well everyone.

Brilliant red of a softness so true
Delicate delight of unbound clouds of heaven
Soothing sounds of angelic beings with not a care
Seeing beyond the veil into a face called love.
