ISLAND

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2010 by ravenstooth
I am lost on this island
With the whole world floating by
I can see only my hands
As I reach for your smiling reply
 
The shore seems to be falling further away
The more I swim the tide washes me astray
Every glimpse I see you standing on the beach
And with every wave you get farther from my reach
 
My boat feels overturned
There is a hole in the keel
My skin scorched and sunburned
And I’m sinking deeper the more I feel
 
I’m disoriented and bewildered
Every time I think of you
I can’t see into the world I’ve entered
Even if I stood on the same island you do
 
So one contemplates while deserted in their mind
In the process of ultimate euphoria they hope to find
As when one looks up to see the eagle’s fly up high
There’s an island in every moment drifting on by

WHAT IT IS I’M AFTER

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2010 by ravenstooth
How can you be totally in your there
When your mind is swimming over here
As you talk formally and laughter
And that I wonder what it is I’m after
 
Perhaps I could just dream about you smiling at me
Setting my insides floating and butterflying so free
Watching the wind fly by and the flowers grow
Catching the smell of the breeze as the blooms blow
 
I can only hope when you dream of me our hearts rush
Gazing into my eyes I can see you’re in need of my touch
Then we hold gentle our loving until the night makes us hush
As we drift into this dream where time keeps us in its clutch
 
Dust covers the eternity that I’m searching for
All around the dirt spins and fills in every door
As I try to open each untraveled road I seem to find
That I’ve only hoped that it would ease my mind
 
Something that you hide
Reaching up you hold me inside
We seem so formless in our glide
Where the world around us has died
 
How am I here when my mind is totally in your there
I’ll never be alone as long as I know that you care
And when I hear your talking and laughter
I will know that you are what it is I’m after
