    Tea

    Trust in you
    The eternal blue
    The unshakeable vision
    Mindless decision

    Without hesitation
    Frustration or gyration
    Positive force
    To be wreckoned with
    Of course

    An animal of different stock
    Walking the walk
    To ensnare and dare
    From within
    A world without sin

    Focused and tenacious
    Natively herbaceous
    Inside every single stamen
    Peaked a mind's eye
    Brilliance lost in chance
    Impetuous days gone by

    Forever unresolved
    Differences
    Absolute sacrifice
    Brought about
    By wind and rain
    Natural forces abstain
    Holding back
    Without attack
    Pure desire

    Your purposeful
    Glances toward me
    Become
    A fruitless tree
    Withering
    Above
    The abstract
    Tasteless
    Cup of tea
    Set for three

    Unrest

    Alabaster remnants
    Of soft parades
    Smooth skin
    Lights twinkling
    Under fireworks
    Over the moon
    About you
    About what could be
    What should be
    A union free and content
    No yoke to speak of
    But a particular stroke
    Of destiny rendered
    Faith never surrendered
    That day you left
    The scene of the crime
    My feelings spent
    No love ever lent
    All debts repaid
    Your mind made up
    As I witnessed disrupt
    How blind everyone was
    To the temptations
    Of our youth
    A youth unkempt
    Something never dreamt
    Parting without sparing
    Each other the pain
    And shame
    Of being dishonest
    Egregious sinful
    Lust and disgust
    Innocence shattered
    Love unrequited and mattered
    Your heart promised to another
    My world crashing asunder
    Before my eyes
    The best parts of me
    Wasted away
    Within mere moments
    Stoic silence and regret
    Your eyes spoke the rest
    Total unrest

    Fight

    Concrete jungles
    Obscene and mean
    Prickly dress
    Quiet mess
    Too many cooks
    Pages and books
    Astonishment
    Admonishment
    Collective desires
    Burning funeral pyres
    Forgotten oaths
    Thoughtless codes
    Weary times
    Obscure lines
    Hidden paths
    Scalding baths
    Beaten drums
    Lyrical hums
    Innocence suffers
    Ideological buffers
    Only the strong survive
    And learn to strive
    Make a better world
    Blood and sweat unfurled
    Earn the right
    Resist the blight
    Fight

    Clue

    Too many thoughts
    Circle the blue void
    Thoughts of indecision
    Guilt and despair
    Wasted energy
    Empty words
    And stale air

    Buried in ancient soil
    Many moons ago
    Struggling for attention
    How very apropos
    Cynical credo

    The seeds
    Never achieved
    Misgiven deeds
    Grow beyond
    What you can see

    Until the time is right
    No more drama
    No more hype
    Just solid will
    To kill
    What plagues
    The mind
    The thrill of defeat
    Is heartless conceit

    With abilities and talent
    What isn't apparent
    The gaping hole
    In the soul
    Like a hidden mole

    Driven into the expanse
    Of open chance
    To become
    What fate
    Always had in store
    A whole lot more

    This is the final
    Clue
    Don't be afraid
    To be you

    Words

    All round me are words
    Words of inspiration
    Words of condemnation
    Words of fierce resolve
    Words that continue to evolve
    Words with a story
    Words of personal glory
    Words that bring out the best
    In us
    But the rest include
    Words of hate
    Words that berate
    Words that divide
    Words we all abide
    But change is coming
    Words have new power
    Words will begin to tower
    Above all
    All that is wrong
    Bring all people together
    On Earth
    United like the words
    In a song

    Union of Tragic Impressions

    Classic symmetrical
    Lines perfectly drawn
    Broad strokes of genius
    Dripping purposely
    From the canvas
    Synchronous gestures
    Thoughts and emotions merge
    A union of tragic impressions
    Discourse with foreign dialects
    Secrets made bare
    Naked and true
    The reason becomes clear
    Dead poets painted it
    For you

    High

    How beautiful
    Is the night sky
    My oh my
    Fly
    Away
    Fly high

    Claimed

    All
    I am
    Is this really all
    I am
    All I will ever do
    Or accomplish
    Whatever I do
    Is this all
    There is
    For us
    Sanctuary
    In knowing
    The foolishness
    Is behind
    We can now be
    Who
    We always wanted
    To be
    For each other
    The freedom
    To share
    With you
    The time
    Now
    Unchained
    Now
    My life
    You
    Claimed

    Wine

    The majesty of you
    A solitary breath
    Air so clear
    No ill will
    Or vapors that kill
    Just the coolness
    A single memory
    That defines my life
    The night we first met
    At the center of strife
    In that hotel courtyard
    Summer jasmine scent
    Lingering aloft
    In my dreams
    Like the bright sparkle
    In your eyes I see now
    Clear as diamonds
    In the moonlight
    What a magnificent sight
    That feeling of bliss
    The perfect kiss
    When the Earth shook
    Or was it my weakened knees
    Forever at ease
    Now begging please
    Please don't leave me
    Don't end what we have
    Your silence is deafening
    My soul is emptying
    Wandering desperately
    To recapture that spark
    That one complete
    Pure and happy instant
    I felt in the dark with you
    When
    Your lips
    Connected with mine
    Entwined like
    Tasting the divine
    A sublime find
    The most insatiable
    Wine

    Blue

    Fading
    Away in that starlight
    The bright dazzle
    Of your sapphire eyes
    Sings sweet nothings
    In my ear
    A familiar ware
    Your voice beckons
    Calling out for more
    History between us
    A joyful fuss
    Our chemical mix
    Full of magical tricks
    Composed of ancient pains
    And struggle that never wanes
    Only wisdom remains
    And truth and beauty
    A continuous search
    For the reasons why
    We never said good bye
    Just one last walk
    And a quiet talk
    As dawn breaks
    With sunlight
    Creeping over the horizon
    Fishes leaping
    In the caliginous shimmer
    That was our past
    Never a strong swimmer
    But with no resistance
    To the goals of existence
    You embarked out
    On a boat
    Called No Doubt
    With no fear
    With no care in the world
    But to venture beyond
    What can be written
    In song
    And left everything
    Behind
    Including your mind
    And my love for you
    Ever suspended
    In the ocean waters
    Of blue
    Forever askew
