LOVE ME

 

 

“Love me,”

the sign calls in the night.

“Come inside,”

the open door suggests.

“Pull up a chair,”

the seat shifts to the side.

I sit and wait.

Soft strains of music

waft through the room.

The door to the kitchen opens.

“Hello, my darling,”

the man says with a wink.

My mouth drops open.

He walks closer.

The music quickens its pace.

“What is this?”

I ask.

Handsome in a suit and tie,

he drops onto one knee.

In his right hand, a black box.

My hands cover my mouth.

He offers the box.

I take it with trembling fingers.

Inside, sits a diamond ring.

I stare into my love’s eyes.

He quirks an eyebrow.

I nod my head.

No words are needed.

He places the ring on my finger.

I’m in his arms.

Where I will remain

for the rest of my life.

ARE WE ALONE?

Carl Gustav Carus (1789-1869) – Faust’s Dream

 

 

ARE WE ALONE?

 

Friends and family.

Are they with us?

I can feel them.

A thickness in the air.

A soft touch.

A slight breeze.

Is my brother gone,

Or is he still with me?

I feel him beside me.

He chuckles at my blunders.

Laughs at my jokes.

Cries when I’m hurt.

He is with me.

Always.

Forever.

WAIT FOR ETERNITY

Boat

 

Take me away in the soft breeze.
Let my fingers flow through your hair.
I want to see your warm smile.
I hunger for your loving touch.

Time for that is long past.
Victims of the battle we now are.
Hell is waiting for us both.
I can see his boat drifting offshore.

I will not let him take me.
I want to share paradise with you.
Warm breezes and soft winds
To wrap us tight in its cocoon.

No more glory to be had.
No more wins for our side.  
Our losses are steep and many.
The mighty have fallen this night.

The sun has set for the evening.
It has not brought you back to me.
I will wait for all eternity
Until I have you by my side.

OUR GAMES HAVE JUST BEGUN

THE DEAD GAME

ONE SONG

 

 

ONE SONG

 

Sing me a love song.

Rhyme me a sad tale.

The woe of heartbroken lovers

whose tinny cries take to the air.

The needle rides the grooves.

Round in a circle, it goes.

No beginning or end.

Like a tear that refuses to fall.

A song without an end.

The melody echoes through eternity.

One jump and scratch at a time.

HOLD ME

 

Cover me with your yellow light.

Hide me from the night’s evil plight.

 

Take me in your arms and hold me.

Come down to me on bended knee.

 

I need you tonight and forever more.

Hold me so tight until I’m hurt and sore.
