The Diamond Light Of Losing You

Ice crystals of pain reflect
The diamond light of losing you
Geometry of tragedy reaches
Beyond the grasp of light
Refracting the love I lost
When I walked away from you
As all motion of life collides
With my broken heart inside this
Kaleidoscope of madness
The crimson palace of my sorrow

From far above I see myself
Reaching toward the healing bow
Upon the craft of my own redemption
Built with the hands that gave me Life
Emerging from within my own abandon
And I am lost throughout the stars
Of your magnificence a universe
A galaxy which you began so long
Ago and which I have forsaken

Legends cannot replace the love
We created on those days
Wherein the peaceful waters retreat
To the calm reflection of your breath
And I am reminded once again inside
This hall of ours that your warmth
Forms the Balustrade of my existence
The sweet foundation of our joy
Placed deep inside the anchors of my soul
Only to emerge once again

Free from all the pain of losing you
Returning home welcomed by your
Arms embracing our Perfect Love

Native – A Legacy of Time

The cleansing of my heart
Has taken place on scented thought
In a night far too clear along the galaxies end
I reach for words like the spokes of a
Spiders web never once thinking how
Arbitrary the process becomes
When pen and paper are left to the
Whims of deed and chance
(I’d have better luck) elsewhere
So, forgive me as I reach again
Longing to merge my heart to the Words
Where worlds descend on laughter’s end
Pouring out onto an evenings coat
Like milk on silk over water’s flow
It’s as if the crescent moment of
A life’s sheer wake
Has left me no choice but to make
Endemic time all the more
Convincing to my choice
Of going home
To you
Like going home
On Christmas Day
