Reality

Moonlight brushes your smile
A simple touch
The rush
A surge
Laughter pulls on your eyes

You almost glimpse
A place I saved for you
I shield it
With a giggle and a smile

In a time of youth
I envisioned what would be

You.
Me.

Palpable and complex
Something.
Nothing.
Everything.
Spun into perfection

The smallest nuance
Plays on my mind
I squirm inside
Fruitless avoidance

Make it last
Eternity for an instant

The melody of life
Strange impediment

Across the page
Push this away
A rhythmic obstacle
From the start
We end

Perhaps.

Suldog said...

That's oddly compelling. I liked it, a lot.

(Don't quite know if I knew exactly where you were coming from - or going - but I assume the general tenor is what was important, and I certainly felt that.)
