As Lemmings

Some things I relinquish,

Like motorway driving –

I hate it.

But not love, never love.

Even when it hurts,

I rate it

 

As way up there

With angels

And such.

Fantastical, almost magical,

I love love

So much.

 

It’s a wonder,

Curiosity,

A conundrum unsolved

But found,

Valued intensely,

In love, all absolved.

 

Unrequited, it sucks

And hurts,

Feel the pain.

Lovers fall,

From great heights,

Again and again,

 

Like suicide mission

Or lemmings

To cliff,

Thrown into orbit,

Glide momentarily

Then drift

 

Aimlessly,

Through space,

Before crashing, taking stock,

Splattered and battered

By love

On the rocks.

 

Some hurting

So keenly,

Formidably endure

But willing to

Test, to try

To ensure

 

New futures,

Gratifications,

From love with a soul,

In searching,

Believing,

Hope has a goal.

 

Unfailing

This feeling,

What it’s about,

Love and its merits

We sense,

Seek it out.

 

Be hopeful,

Persistent,

Strive to that end

In loving,

Acceptance,

We find and we mend

 

In hearts

That once broken

A new dawn begins.

Love never ends,

It feeds

From within.

 

It travels

Through heavens,

Scopes out the land,

Seeks those in need,

Resolves,

Takes in hand

 

Till two are united

Hands reach,

Hearts on offer

To those,

Such as those,

Love will proffer

 

And soon,

Without looking,

Or searching too far,

Love’s endless journey

Arrives

And our star

 

Is brightened,

Unblighted

By earthly endeavour,

Embraced

By all willing,

Love savoured with pleasure.

History Rewritten

Diamond hard scoring glass,

Durable

On fragile,

Tally the marks leaving

Goals scored,

Unscored,

Nothing won,

Only grieving.

 

History written,

Read,

Unread,

Reread,

Lessons learned,

Unlearned,

To be learned.

Dead

 

On pages.

Living on

In memory,

In mind.

Newer truths,

Better ways,

Some hope

To find.

 

No answers

But questions

Why,

How?

Is it time?

Not yesterday,

Nor tomorrow

But now?

 

Ways forward,

New paths,

Roads untravelled

To seek

Guidance,

A road map,

Willingness

To speak

 

With honesty,

Integrity,

Intention

Purest.

Solutions

Always present,

Search,

Cease duress.

 

Who writes the pages?

Is it Time itself

Or we who

Do not speak

While invisible hands

Etch future,

Ignore past,

Encode only bleak?

 

New history

Unwritten,

Waiting

For ages

Past,

Present, Future,

Different story,

Fresh pages.
