totally optional prompts

face 2 face

familar feelings
antipodal percussion
carressing contact

strangers cognizance
confidential distraction
intimate innate

barely we exist
beyond the backyard fencepost
hungar cognizance

never known to speak
we linger long in never
sneaking unconcern

never was it real
floating free in the twilight
anchored by balloons

then was when began
clashing dreams awake or sleep
reality ran

peppered with happy
anger crept quietly still
shadows always talk

lint-free my world sang
running to places unknown
they followed me not

between the cracks

rarely touched by life
he enjoyed the sweet ripe peach
a mouthful of taste

noticing nothing
his human fraility hid
just under the suit

one forgotten man
drifter in captured escape
lost photo albums

trapped transient tramp
he wanders 5th avenue
hardened with knowledge

OneSingleImpression, Poetry

without strings attached

clear window gazing
his silent simple footsteps
made way towards our home

knowing life waited
just as he left moons ago
glancing backwards blink

tearing through his flesh
blood bones memories spilling
all for liberty

ephemeral view
forever his first last breath
candle’s light burning

between his fingers
webbed in silence unobserved
my love weaved tightly

he’s never left me
the scent of his life lingers
between blood and bones

one single impression no 21: homecoming;

eternity smiled

today, tomorrow
i fell in love with right now
just a small moment ago

heard a concrete word
overflowing with meaning
beyond a touchable time

share with me this one
where a whisper lingers long
letting go you know

this moment has past
memorize within my soul
signaling anew
