ACT (of) ONE

THE curtains open to broken applause
an audience of great mystery
i cannot see their faces
nor their eyes
my Usher flees me!
And Time, the soliloquy
for Thespian lies
with each act an act of Life
and props on spot
for dramatic plots
Agh! my lines evade me!
Evade me for all i am
worthless within my House
of Theater:

The Absurd
The Humour
The Horror
The Love

of tears of joy of laughter
of sorrow of broken lines
upon my heart
upon my face
within the glass
upon the shattered floor

AND within the miles of aisles
of faceless witness
my lines flee me!
Within and without such cosmic shatter
an audience so abstract is my life
an Act (of) One.

SHADOW TOWARDS THE LIGHT

i hear a shadow walking towards the light
in all amazement i feel tonight is the
deepest of all the darkness

and in all the suffocating intention
i miss the sun but love the moon
its everything i was raised for this night

i was snared when so ruined
begged forgiveness but knew
there’d be no mercy for what
was brewing

One thing is holy
among the ruin
one thing is evil
among the beauty

And i’ll tell you
over lunch tonight

I’ll show you love
I’ll show you ruin
I’ll show you heartache
in all that’s brewing
within me this night //

THE FIRST LOVE

I can see across
the ages
and your smile
always seems so fresh!

a moment in time:
we kissed beneath
the apple tree!

you took the bite (of me)
and i cried:
I shouldn’t have
let you
torture me so sweetly,

an entire world pays our sin.
I could never say
‘no’ to you and you;

a withered reed blowing
in time.  but I’m an
“unforgiven” as you are my love
but it’s good,

so good enough  to see a world
birthed from this love!
Oh come toward me let’s be;

good enough.  So good enough
for all of us, oh, i could
never say ‘no’ to you.
