Overcoming thoughts of You

Overcoming thoughts of You

The days fading fast

Into oblivion of nights

Detonation blast

 

The mind’s explosion

Into realms of darkness creep

Whispers of autumn

 

Widowed eyelids weep

Parting of the eyebrows raised

Holding soft the gaze

 

Remnants of spring’s path

Sun kissed blossoms now fading

The weeds invading

 

Gardens in simmers

Under a sun that glimmers

Dying rays wet kiss

 

Water down the hills

Dark tides flowing into sands

Ice into Islands

 

Ebb and flow pursue

Within the changing seasons

Shades of my mind’s blue

 

Hope of morrows faint

Reflux a lesson of tides

Tireless happenings

 

Rearranging stills

Breathing through invented gills

Dead canvas to paint

 

The brush strokes in clues

Overcoming thoughts of You

Bold red and blue hues

Words come easily

The saying a treachery

For gullible minds

 

Phrases rolling off

Like boulders from a steep cliff

The tongue honey’s tool

 

Hypocrisy’s school

The pupils aligned like bees

Their uniforms sleek

 

Loving heart is meek

Sweet tongue-tied and faltering

Its messages sparse

 

Lying heart is weak

Its heartbeat a mere tremor

The voice compensates

 

There are sweet voices

They distill poison like milk

Double code their craft

 

Neither here nor there

Lost in the realms of the void

Traveler speaks not
