Today is my birthday, hurrah! Much to do, much to do! However, I have managed to write something for today. Here goes!
I can still hear the distant keys heralding our smiles
Flurrying crescendos pulsate throughout these branches
Every note a precious moment from memory’s vault
Leaves shiver at your passing touch so faintly fleeting
That minute glint of striving in your eye
Though you have no direction but project image
Your turmoil is partially elusive but I know it solid
Tis not the illusion you would have me believe
I am untouched by your machinations
Yet I shall feign capture for discovery?
Risk taken, the trembling appendages do not know
Did you think you could defy the rain?
Try as you might there is no way to avoid dampening
Being rendered ripe by the blissful tears of cycles ageless
You’re sleeping with glazed face
My foot is tapping some alien beat
Flickering lights watch you stir, weary expression lapping
Around the edge of smile-stained face
Your unkempt hair bounces as you speak
Branches snap overhead and you can be heard humming
A song-laden tune of storms, birthing winds
Will the trees do as good a job of clemency as I?
When I turned from one fleeting embrace to another
Eventuality dissolving you into distant dusts
I heard your whisperings in the twilight between passions
Sought for the lips which imparted them life
They were hidden until the closing remark
When our non-being of matrimony became ephemera
So much I cannot recall
But I was always cursed to share in suffering
A twinge of happiness I thought might be mine
Though you sought my annihilation
Which never came due to my committed endurance
I was the one stone your tide could not sweep away
The rare one to not relinquish
This baptism was not an easy one
I never welcomed it
Though I am beyond it now
Have a good day!
