I wasn’t missing out
On what came from within
Never turned my back on those
That kept on looking in
As I checked my pulse for signs
Of the loved lives in between
I realized everyone who noticed
Was more than what they seemed
Now I can stand in the daylight
And boldly address the night
Knowing that the souls that dare look down
Will join me in the fight
If the connections are right
The feelings will follow
And the sin of those faint signs
Will remind us we’re mortal
Snakes can harm us tender souls
Their bite is fierce and all seems grim
We question where their poison comes from
What keeps their venom in
For those who trust more in God’s nature, science just won’t do
They seek answers within their souls, and what thier words say to you
So if you believe in a mighty hand, reaching down with blessing
Trust in that hand to keep you close, and the serpent’s bite will lessen
Eight long years separate
Why did we wait?
Loved ones dismiss us with a piercing glance
Why must they hate?
Daily comments of her lives online
Well wishes for a birthday
It sparks a notion all day long
Let’s go out for coffe
She was shy, small, and keeps no eye trained long
We talk her whole life over
A most familiar song.
When the talk ends, she turns
She thanks me for the meal
I ask if we can stay in touch
If time was ours to steal
She says it depends on he day
In a tone so tellingly flirty
She snuck past her parents to make this day count
The girl is well past thirty!
As she strolls along the high street
Her world knows no doubt.
I sat there nursing a hot mug
What was that all about?
