A poised challenge to me like waves crashing the beach
a memory so distant, yet piercing the bone
pervading my thoughts it demands to be heard
holding my heart in its basket of words

Forever it was ago and by now it be gone
another sun shines warm, a new road leads on
but stretch as I do and leave as I persist
the taste remains me here and thoughts imprisoned in this

not of loveís light, but a truth to confess
these chains wear the rust of an everyday test
an awkward snug, a tailorís mistake
the truth that weíve sown we soon forsake

a truth that by you sees no start
from its center of reason you hide your heart
bellowed clear from the depths of your soul
a cry for love, yet a standard to hold

you let your past determine your love
donít let your guilt make you part of
a lost way no direction for move
your compass as guide, your own untruth

A love now gone from good soil it was learned
but her smile faces someone else and her back is to me turned

I remember those eyes, fine skin, gentle hair
I recall the warmth of a single breath
What she sees her game with rules as fair
Adroit her skills have scored a Death

wow you have an amazing way of expressing your self...this is VERY well written...
I really enjoyed reading this.
take care,jm


 you're really alone at last...
you're bored and fading fast,
if it's true you'll fall from the past
all you'll have to do is ask
you'll feel but never be
you want and always need
price you pay for wanting to see
will you have all you've ever dreamed...
