african rhythm

beat of my heart

 I once was part

of her starlit night

the crescent moon

shining so bright

foreign language

whispering softly

my naked desires

in blazing fires

forever merging

on fertile ground

in true tradition

distant voices

  lustrous glint

 infinite love

ETERNALLY

part of me

in roaming streams

of death’s journey

so much

more poignant

to lose a beloved

to the soundless

 laugh of love

the scent of

your absence

with ravenous

desires

on mental shores

of solitude

*

my pain wears

the mask

of a virgin

clenching this dream

as I stagger towards

the maze of your fervor

and silence grow pregnant

where I long for your love

to turn my evanescent soul

and sculpture my heart

a dream within a dream

as our memories fade

where passion is the fire

my silent heart within

as I write

like the river needs

the ocean

like the moon needs

the night

like my soul needs

you…

when it comes

to baring

confronting your own

in naked truth

*

so much more

spoken in

silence

Innuendo’s

in ante meridiem

whispers of the wind

through the eyes

 of an innocent child

where I can dream

and capture the stars

visions of my youth

chasing butterflies

effervescent love

to laugh and sing

and write my song

*

the child in us

it somehow keeps us wild

it somehow keeps us free

I hear noise

all around me

it echo’s in this space

I have no part in it

the wind rustling

through the leaves

of trees

I sit alone

in silent dialogue

with my thoughts

quiet beating

of my heart

peace rests snugly

in the womb of dusk

if I could

I would

capture it

right now…

here…

in this moment

*

and so goes

the distant memory

into the wind…

Your silence in a song…

your silence

in a song lingers

teasing my senses

with ravenous allure

*

where I move you

to the hidden corners

of my thoughts

trying to hide you

between the pages

of my aching heart

in which I daily muse

my spirit

moving  back and forth

to the tired body

of a crucified cosmos

the endless quest

trying to avoid

or is it an illusion

your picture not fading

in vain, I remain

***

this wheel of hope

keeps teasing

while

your silent song

still lingers

metamorphosis

exposing a bleeding heart

becoming undone

life has a rhythm

lies within the rules of hope

no-one understands

uncover the darkness

 so angelic and sanguine

blazing fire within

What you read is what I feel...

How I write, is mine...How you read, is yours

Most of us feel it, some don't. Some of us say it, some don't. Some may agree, some won't. Be as it may, the facts still remain.
