    A good morning, indeed
    (Inspired by Cocobutterskyn's "even if...")

    Locked in the imagery
    Of past “mine and your” time
    Two hearts aligned
    My time was always…your time
    And there was nothing I could not find
    In you


    Spur-of-the-moment needs
    Inspired me
    …Never surprised me
    With, or without,
    Urgency
    I understand your
    Subtle needs
    …The way we used to be
    The luxury of
    Anytime-is-the-right-time
    Liberties
    And how we came
    To be


    There is no silly
    About me,
    Or you
    Orchestrating
    Non-existent Realities
    Believed to be
    Pain free
    Coz no pain resides
    Within me


    Listen to me

    Morning wake-me-ups
    And evening sleeps
    As Blues creep
    Ever slowly into
    No more
    Coz no more
    Defines yesterday’s
    Indulging
    Memories
    Indulging my
    Memories of you
    How love was true
    And everyday said
    “I Love You”
    Where no words
    Need
    To


    I
    Live
    In the
    Company
    Of your liberty
    Never misery
    Never copied stanzas
    Of others lives
    Never contrived
    …Questioning the happiness
    Of another’s lives


    O, but for the wise
    The heart one less
    Disguise


    We are one

    Tomorrow
    We live on
    We, forever, to be
    Caught in the grasp of
    One love’s squeeze
    Free to be


    One.

    No one
    Has ever said
    I love you
    In a better,
    More passionate
    Way.
    Everyday
    I heard you say
    Words that never crossed your lips
    Tiny sips of
    What “even if…”
    Brought to light
    Is what I dreamt
    Every night


    You put me to sleep.

    I’ve read
    And re-read
    The many lines
    Of your heart’s words
    And heard
    The broken hearted cry
    Of a soul that bleeds
    Its misery


    I tried to hide
    The scars of my pain
    In vain
    Coz self misery
    Isn’t hidden from self
    And what we have left is
    Opportunities…for giving
    And listening
    And honoring what was
    And maintaining that love
    An eternity
    You and me
    Will never fade
    Or die
    For our cry for oneness
    Will never cease
    We will always be


    One.

    I had to come take another dive into your beautiful words. They feel just as warm and smooth as the first few times I took a swim.
