Momentary Love

Street scene, approaching lady light
She didn’t smile when she passed
Walked right on by, hope as I might
No turning to admit a love that would last

We made no contact, no awareness
But still there’s something yearning in me
A connection likely just of the eye
No way that this momentary love might be

How can I feel so soon?
This is no learing letching stare
To my love, this echo does not compare
This is a function of a heart laid bare

Raw nerves floundering at my surface
Open, exposed to every passerby
Indiscriminately seeking purpose
Can’t turn off feeling but I try

Love having been flexed is strong
But with no you, has no where to go
So as I walk into work on Tuesday
I fall momentarily for people I don’t know

Help bring love

In two weeks in and need help building a base of readers to take my messages of love in verse to the world. How can I improve my site, my posts, my set up… any comments very gratefully received!

I’m not your destiny

I love you and feel loved too
But you will grow beyond me
I’m not the final one for you
I’d like it, but I’m not your destiny

Don’t hide our difference
Right now this hurts
Admit the apparent gap
Admit the need to divert

See it for what it is
Identify and isolate
Long term problems
Don’t procrastinate

Or else question all
When all else is good
Our love has been true
But we’ve tried all we could

We will be friends still
It’s hard to love and let go
Hard to do the right thing
Heart holds on, denies what I know

I love you and feel loved too
But you will grow beyond me
I’m not the final one for you
I’d like it, but I’m not your destiny

Love in Focus

Love in focus
Love I see
Sitting here
Your love’s with me
Heart swells
My mind still
Eyes see you
Emotions overspill
On holiday
Out or at Home
All our times
Together, we’ve grown
My one amazing
My golden star
My lioness
We’re never apart
Love in focus
Love I see
Sitting here
Your love’s with me

Tube Surprise

Human haze,
Tube packed,
Commuter daze,
Spaces stacked,
Rumbling progress
Grumbling mass
Station after station
Rolling past
Then stop.
Doors open
Shining light
Smiles abound
Like day from night
A swish of hair
A quiet look
She enters
Ground shook
Corner rail
My hand by hers
Raging thoughts
Love whispers
Phone immersed
Hidden eyes
My waking dream
Tube surprise.

Happy ever after

Twisting tales of love
Boy and girl embroiled
In quest, true and pure
In adventure, evil foiled

Where hearts are exposed
No soft fairy story exists
Lives at stake, battles fought
With so much at risk.

Fail and face a life
With a soul mate lost
Succeed and rapture find
Existence, joy reinforced

Understand your plot
Check the tale you are in
Disney cute or crooked dark,
Brooding from brothers Grimm

Be sure whatever you see
Go forth with blessed hope
Stay open of true heart
Two souls may yet elope

Let down your scaling hair
From your lonely tower high
Keep watch for kindred folk
The good twist for you is nigh

Over the horizon comes
Your knight in shining armour
Be bold, ready in yourself
Embrace the positive drama

Know who you are, be strong
Have learned what’s key for you
Happy ever after is there
But it depends on what you do

What we had was love

I will take the pain
If that means what we had was love
A furrowed brow and lack of sleep I will keep
If that means what we had was love
I will accept a broken heart, my world torn apart
If that means what we had was love
Retain memories precious, despite making me nauseas
If that means what we had was love

For if it wasn’t love and this is for naught
I won’t be able to face the brutal emotional onslaught

I will wish you well, not cast into hell
If that means what we had was love
Forgive your changed mind, try to be kind
If that means what we had was love
I’ll face the friends we shared, alone, torment shown
If that means what we had was love
Find a way to feel once more, a loving encore
If that means what we had was love

For if it wasn’t love and this was all a lie
I will lock myself away, and hope will die

You know what life means

Gather the masses
Gather their souls
Tell them the truth
That there’s no golden goal

We all make our way
We all choose a path
With none of us certain
And with no turning back

Some they will stumble
Some they will fall
Some venture far
Some get nowhere at all

But we’re all on a journey
We travel each day
So pick out your target
The suns out, make hay

One day you will trip
One day you will fly
One day the path endless
The next miles rush by

Up ahead on the route
By the fork in the road
There’s a friend to find
To help share the load

Go on independent, or
Decide to hold hands
Enjoy shared moments
A change to your plans

Don’t feel so constrained
Don’t make no demands
Enjoy company in your life
Together, while you can

It may not last long
You may end up apart
But love with your all
Be glad from the start

Then when you’re alone
You will regret not a thing
Look back on your travels
You’ve gained everything

A heart full of loving
A mind still full of dreams
While others are vexed
You know what life means

My Barista Glance

Woke up this morning
Processed down the street
Said good morning to someone
That twice daily I greet

Got to the station
But popped out for a drink
Now a smile for my barista
Is making me think

She’s paid to be friendly
To make the talk small
Which probably means
She feels nothing at all

She smiles at her client
Whoever they be
The look for one moment
Wasn’t special you see

But. However tiny it is
There’s the smallest chance
That more was meant
Than just an amicable glance

She’s been nice before
Made coffee for free
Shared plans for the weekend
Maybe she’s sweet on me

We’ve touched hands, albeit fleeting
When passed drinks or my change
Perhaps she wants to be asked
Perhaps this thought isn’t so strange

Now. However tiny it is
There’s the smallest chance
That more was meant
Than just an amicable glance
