9. Effaced Lover

9. Effaced Lover

There lingers something within me

I’m yet to understand.

It’s nature and mine intertwine like

lovers chained together.

 

If one were to remove the chain

would they touch no longer or rather

love each other all the more.

 

I’ve learned not to fear what I do not

understand within myself.

As this too is a part of me, as I am

indeed myself.

8. Tracing

8. Tracing

To keep that constant reminder with

age as not to forget who we are

as we become

 

Who we were as we become

Who we are

In age as I travel among these

feelings and thoughts

 

There are some things to be kept

Some things to be watched

and watch without turning my head

 

Dare I step without dragging a foot

Changing always even if I don’t wish

to pull away

 

Rather shall I carve my way

and keep a few as others fade

and keep a few while keeping face

Maybe I won’t lose my trace

 

6. Timing

6. Timing

Speaking only twice

Once heard

And then no more

4. Day Two

4. Day Two

I guess I don’t like being lonely

I prefer spending time

We’ve spent the whole day

I think it’s too early to end the night

But it’s okay You can leave

As soon as I fall asleep

2. Playthings

2. Playthings

Play a game with me

In the seasons of my self

Maybe we will get lost

As time passes in moments

We may find perspective again

1. Anyway

1. Anyway

Now I’m becoming the friend I would have wanted

and even more so the friend I needed.

 

The kind of person who has the perspective I lacked.

Especially when I was off they would know

and they would help me understand it.

 

Even if I wouldn’t have asked for the help I needed…anyway.

20. Migraine in F Sharp

I wonder who began this

tangled mess, was it some

game of mazes or an

intertwining of jests
