the center of it all

glancing deep,
into the nothing,
butterflies dream
of winter snows,
panthers roam
on silken roads,

i see
every single little thing…

i see
absolutely nothing at all.

In this perfect
captured moment,
i am free of love
& fear

when silver laced words crash
and tumble
across your chest,
awakening the golden dragons

we go round
and round and
weaving truth from dreams,
ripping fear from
the uninitiated,
answering unspoken pleas.

grappling ecstatic
with abandoned frenzy
we cleave unto
the other as two.
and part
as one.

and Night rises,
gasping in disbelief
at this primal dance
of shadow and blood.

and we whisper gently
into that great void:
my darling,
do worry, for
we have only just begun.

Future Tense

plans beget
plans, and
once unravelled,
beget more and more…

what joys await
this destined fate?

what challenges will I meet
and surpass
in a single a heartbeat?

what may come
may never arrive
for fate is something for me to contrive.

so come what will
and come what may,
I’ve not yet had my fill,
I am ready to play.
