Red lips meet luscious hearts

share flowers, kisses

Lovers paint town crimson red.

Age is only a number,

Come and be my Valentine.

My heart’s an island

I just float by sans life’s boat__

unwanted flotsam.

You jeer, watching from the shore,

abandonment is your game.

Stumbles he through life
Searches he in every eye
remnants of his long  lost love
betrayal comes clothed in guise
slaying loves sweet innocence.

Life’s very last gasps
Spring forth deadened memories
Sins seek forgiveness.
 
One life’s not enough
To wipe off all earthly sins
Have mercy, he screams.
 
Upstairs he departs
Awaiting deliverance
Fate hangs in limbo.

Man dares to trump life

drinking cups of happiness.

Alas! his joy spills over.

Karmic mantras are at play

God’s unseen hand holds all cards.

Earthly bonds bind me
Heart’s wings strain to soar upwards 

 

tireless is my quest.

Seeker of eternal truths,

Onward my flight continues.
