Touched

My world it turned to fog

I didn’t want the detail crowding in

And so I blanked it out

Specifics aren’t where I wish to begin

I’m crawling back to life

I cannot stay in limbo ever more

But not yet standing up

I wonder if I’ll ever leave the floor

And you who put me here

So proud of all that you have done for me

But I forgive you now

Your hatred cannot stop me if I’m free

You think that I am weak

Refuse to play your petty little game

But you can’t touch me now

For I am here and I have found my name

The Rub

Potentially was everything

Superlatively planned

Reality it proved to be

A little out of hand

Ironically it led to this

Ridiculous in verse

Satirically lyrical

It went from bad to worse

Poetically I should refrain

Prosaic would be best

But Rhymer is the name I claim

Poor reader put to test

Phonetically challenging

Syllabic syllabub

No truth was ever found in whine

And there in lies the rub

The first hour

And leaning in a touch of hands

While looking at the picture snaps

And time so very still it stands

Not wanting moments to elapse

We stole an hour at no one’s cost

As from the mundane we escaped

My cares were sixty minutes lost

As in your voice my mind was draped

Let’s meet again as worlds collide

And I can be alone with you

Tectonic plates our hands that slide

We crack the earth creating new

In shifting you have pulled me near

Those minutes gone so precious dear

Angel

You enter in where eagles fear

My agent truth or dare

A shaken stirred and bottles spun

And we are god knows where

I’m taking down the lines behind

For you are at the front

And what is fair in loving wars

When none is innocent

So leave me in the lurching sea

Deserted by your shore

For better is the worst of times

When wisdom wants for more

Bad Example

You set me up to fail and then

You ask me what I’ve done

Unwritten expectation in air

You take delight when I take flight

And god I want to run

But somehow you are always standing there

And so I try to justify

The accusations made

Your questions punch the stuffing out of me

And forced into a corner where

Your trap was so well laid

Example is what you have made of me

Two Hands

Every moment I would share

If you would let me in

Loving isn’t easy when

You feel the need to win

See a side you try to hide

I know you are afraid

Love is not a game of cards

But here my heart is laid

I don’t know the things you’ve seen

Or why you shy away

Know that if I earn your trust

You’ll pull me close one day

Lover be yourself and do

Not fear I am a friend

Hand in hand I’m here right now

And will be till the end
