A Moment’s Kiss

A Moment’s Kiss

 

Hesitation’s pause

 seconds 

like longest hours

chances

there for the taking

but for an ever twirling dance

…uncertainty’s cold paralysis

 indecision

lost moments

 …ticking off

never once halted

time’s staid guardianship

 

alas,

 

the plane of indecision is broken

 

this, the first of many

 

stolen moments

Jagged Cold Winds

Ever Wildly Galloping

Under Canopy

of  

Gray Skies

Readying for

Winter’s Frigid Embrace

As Seasons Change

Such

The Wicked Immediacy

Frailties

Of Turning Colours

of Autumn

Rudely Ushered Out

For Snows and Cold

that

Prepare to Cover

Earth

In Preperation

for

Her Slumber

and

Eventual Renewal

And Promise

Awaiting

Kiss of Spring

Better Days Ahead

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Progression Teasing

Teasing the Angels

With Damning Cup

Full to the Brim

Enmity

Self-Loathed

Cursed as

Tantalus’ forever Cursed Reachings

Towards Branches

of Such Poisoned Fruit Above

Teased from afar

Faintest Twinkling,

Briefest Glint

Fool’s Gold

Cursed to be Pulled Back

By The Weight

Of Own Blinding Greed

Into the Swallowing Echoed

Dark Abyss Below

No Matter,

For Once Again

The Cost Will be Dared

Reality be Damned

Wakerife

 

Many Pardons

For any Numbed Slumberings

No Longer Capable of

Deeper Empathy

Blunted Senses

Pulverized by

Constant Stream

Of Everyday News of the World

Leave it to We Humans

To Perfect

the Art of Inhumanity

Faint Whispers to Deafening Shouts

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , , , on December 17, 2012 by lengesinski

 

 

Paroxysm

As Sparks Transformed

to an All Consuming Inferno

Gradually Built Animosities

Built One by One by One-Thousand

The Day Came

Where The Accumulated Hammered Chiseled Bits

Widened Miscroscopic Cracks to Gaping Fissures

In the Broken Mind

A Deranged Person’s

Gunshots Rang Out

Leading to Massacre of Twenty-some

One Dark Friday

 

……Potential’s Unrealized

…….Smiles Left Etched in Memory Alone

………Questions Upon Questions

……..Spinning Rationalizations

 

No Answers

Choosing Thoughts Wisely

Power of Careless Words Harm

If Used Without Care
