69 times

i feel it tighter
the flow moving slower
i anticipate
the flow stopping

nothing passes
all is possible
one encompasses
serenity

i have always been here
it feels so new
since the first time
i hold it to my chest

omniscient waves break
over the bow
everything for all
who feel the spray

gather round and listen
to the voice of wisdom
to the voice of treachery
to the voice of reason
they are all the same color
they are all the same
they are tighter
they are flowing slower
the flow
stops

my words

my words are dying
for a muse,
hoping to get through
to someone that
might not even be
listening

my words are longing
for a touch
in places that
haven’t been touched
in so long

my words are trying
to break through
your defenses
hoping you will see
me for what i am

just a boy
in love
with a girl

speak

speak
use your voice
use your words
go everywhere
you ever want to go

take me there
show me what
i have been missing
through the strains
of your prose

sing
use your rock
use your soul
create a new universe
don’t be afraid to go

pull me into you
show me the heartbeat
of your sun
let me feel
your dark attraction
fill my skies with
sparks and stars

make me yours
and i will be
without question
