A Living Dream

Visions of you linger in my head like a lazy afternoon
while I lie on the cool grass under an abundant shady tree,
these pleasant thoughts of you drift by like runaway balloons
and I feel the rays of warmth that you cause inside of me.

The flowers aroma reminds me of your distinctive scent
and the summers breeze like the delicate touch of your hands;
remembering your smell and your touch I'm eager to relent
to your soft whispers and obsequious to your demands.

Your silhouette I envision as I drift off into a state of bliss
finding every curve and nuance of you aesthetically pleasing
and your lips are like oxygen that I take in with every kiss
giving me life for without you I would have no reason.

I'm easily intoxicated by the very sight of your existence
a conscious realization that has awaken my very being;
as I come to and sit up I see you approaching in the distance
and so glad that you're mine and I'm no longer dreaming.

A Portrait in Futility

Within the belly of a
barren soul hopelessness has settled in
and my bones have no pleasure;
I am tired.

My body has one craving
but happiness I can't seem to attain;
there's something wrong with my brain
and it won't change.

Fill me up with medicine
but it's only a band-aid to my pain
as seasons of loneliness
for me remain.

I've tried to be happy since
I was young; but it has eluded me.
Like chasing after the wind;
I can't catch it.

On a cloudless night one day in June
I tried to entice a dare from the moon;
to see if he would commit an act of truancy
and spend a few hours with me in lunacy.

He said; "But I have many things that depend upon me,
what about the plants, the stars, and the waves of the sea?"
"I can only stay up a few hours tonight anyway;"
I replied, "can you please come down here and play?"

With a gleeful squeal the moon willingly complied
and quickly came down to earth to play by my side.
We first danced on the grass in circles like jubilant doe
and then rolled down the hill by the country chateau.

Like a puppy everywhere I went he eagerly pursued
and said, "This is something that I always wanted to do;
I'm just so happy that someone finally asked me
and want you to know a friend to you I'll always be."

Next he asked me if I had a wagon to pull him along,
I told him, "I have a wheel barrel but I'm not that strong"
"Don't worry", he said; "I hang upon nothing here in the sky,
I'll make myself as light as a feather, just give it a try."

He was right and as I pushed him along the countryside
he lit up our path as we laughed out in sheer delight.
Continuing to push him in the barrel he bounced along
as if landing on every word that you'd follow in a song.

While playing the animals stared out of amazement
as they'd never seen the moon ever act so brazen;
he didn't notice being too caught up in the moment
and I didn't realize my allotted time was already spent.

The moon told me he had to return to his rightful place
and thanked me for the time we spent as we embraced.
I'll always remember that cloudless night one day in June
of all the crazy moments I got to spend with the moon.
