Fleeting Dream

I have wandered through the mirth and mire of life,
a phantom passing unseen among the living.
shrouded in darkness, courted by sorrow.

I was born the moment You murmured my name.
Fire and ice coursed through my veins.
I was set ablaze by Your burning eyes.
Your wintry touch tempered the fire into a slow, cold burn.
I was molded into a creature of pure joy-
A being filled with the blinding radiance of the sun reflecting
  off the ocean.

With one smile my breath was caught-
With one word my wits had fled-
With one brush of Your hand my earth foundations crumbled-
and with one obsidian glance my heart was forever lost.

Fleeting was our dream.
Always destined to wish impossible things.
For although we belonged together,
In this lifetime You were never mine to hold.

My heart is left drowning in shadows,
breathing in this melancholy,
stifling in the still air that remains,
and burning in longing.

When night veils the land,
And sleep temporarily soothes my shattered soul-
I dream of Your cool arms around me,
Your coal black eyes glittering in the darkness,
and the love that awaits us in the twilight realm.

Thanks Leilah & Morgan.

Here goes another one....

Slumber

My love lay slumbering these long years.
His precious bones cradles by the earth,
and warmed by a blanket of verdant grass.
An alabaster stone bears the name
that is etched upon my soul forever.

I stretch out upon your grave,
the welcoming earth feeling like home to me.
the sunlight filtering through the trees,
and the impossibly blue sky fill my vision,
and become the whole world to me-
as I dream that I slumber along with you
in the endless passage of the seasons...

billowing clouds drift lazily across the hazy sky.
the warm earth softly curves around me.
honeysuckle and sweetgrass
perfume the heavy Summer air.
When twilight descends, fireflies drift out of the dewy grass
and wink like tiny stars in the amethyst evening...

I lay under a sky so blue it makes your heart ache.
the sunlight casts a dreamy, burnished gold glow.
The air is laden with the nostalgia of a simpler time long past,
when the cadence of life was gentle, slow, and full of hope.
fallen leaves, with their sweet, musty smell of decay,
settle over the grass like an Autumn-hued blanket...

The stark beauty of bare trees
lay silhouetted against the leaden wintry sky.
Shiny black crows swoop in on an arctic wind,
and alight upon granite tombstones-
their harsh caws echoing across the silent cemetery.
the earth is frozen and unyielding around me,
yet I am still content to lie here-
in no hurry for the coming thaw.
During the long nights, the stars lay like glittering jewels of ice
in the sea of endless darkness of a midwinter night's sky...

Once again the earth grows soft around me,
its loamy scent mingling with the renewed Spring grass.
Lilacs, daffodils, and tulips spring up in unexpected places,
as fat bumblebees start their flower rounds,
a little slower after their winter's sleep.
Their gentle hum harmonizing with the gay birdsong.

The barest touch of your hand upon my cheek
chases the dream away.
I awaken to catch a fleeting glimpse
of your smile that stole my breath
and your eyes that saw into the hidden places of my heart.
In that moment, all the longing and sorrow was forgotten.
And all I knew was our love that knows no end.

The Fall

There are those that believe
the Fall occurred during the war in Heaven.
When we were cast out
And plummeted to the earth-
Burning like falling stars.
But my Fall began
When I first heard the Shadows
whisper my name...

Once, before Time began,
You were all I knew.
You were all my eyes gazed upon.
Your Light filled me
With a burning love
That knew no quenching.
Your Voice that spoke
Everything into existence,
Was the song that
Coursed through me.

One day I noticed the Shadows
Dancing near the edge of the Light.
I was fascinated by the murky, swirling depths
That taunted me and begged for exploration.
I contemplated the Shadows for a long while,
as a subtle aroma drifted out of the mysterious depths.
It was dark and bittersweet,
and carried undercurrents of a subtle, sweet decay.

Then the Voice from the Shadows murmured my name,
and darkness took root.
Deep within my being
a night-blooming flower
unveiled its heady perfume.
I heard the song of the Shadows-
It spoke of mystery and power,
Of seduction and freedom;
Of worlds more beautiful and terrible than I have ever
    witnessed...

You called my name- but I paid no heed.
Your Light enveloped me- but I shrugged it off.
You reached out to me- but I slipped away from Your hand.

I stepped into the Shadows,
and felt myself Fall into an all-encompassing Darkness.
Its cool touch slid over me
and reformed my being from Light and air
into ice and granite.
The light within me died
and darkness burned- cold and endless in its stead.
Time passed and the Darkness was all I knew.
It was as if I had never felt Your Light-
I had always been a creature forged from Shadows.

Then one day I remembered.
I remembered the gentle call of Your Voice-
The Voice that spoke everything into being.
I remembered the Touch that formed all that ever was.
I recalled the Light that filled me with ecstatic song.
I realized that there was no place I may go
That Your Light could not permeate.

The ember that could not be completely extinguished
sparked to life once again- never to be dimmed.
Now I wander through this in-between world,
and mingle with others of my kind- the Fallen and Ascended.
I walk among mortals, as they are caught between darkness
  and light.

Look closely...
I am the man in ragged clothes conversing with phantoms.
I am the teen girl working in the bookstore,
with eyes like a storm-ravaged town.
I am the gentleman in a 3-piece suit,
drowning his sorrows in pitchers of beer.
I am the street musician serenading all who pass,
with songs of loss and sorrow-of joy and light.

I remain in Shadow,
longing for the sky.
My wings had crumbled to dust long ago-
Yet still I dream of you.
     ******
 this poem wrote itself one day, and really seemed to have come from one of the various spirits that either hang around myself and my property, or one of the ones that pass through. The poem kind of haunted me for a couple days and would not rest until I put down on paper...it was interesting to say the least.

A ton of my poems and stories seemed to have written themselves.  I know what you mean.  Love them both.   :rose:

dream

I stand at the edge of a bluff overlooking the dark, rushing
 waters.
The black, steel train bridge stretches across the River,
tattooing the azure sky, like the handiwork of some forgotten
  giant.
I plunge into the River that ever murmurs my name in hushed,
  babbling tones.
The current wraps around me, and gently tugs me into the depths of the secret darkness.
I peer upwards for one last glimpse of the familiar sky,
through the shroud of the glacially cold water.

I am suspended in the welcoming dark of the River,
drifting on its currents that my ears perceive as siren songs
  rising from the deep.
My heart thunders in my chest.
My lungs cry out for breath,
and the blood burns in my veins-
longing for oxygen.
Still I remained submerged,
knowing that I shall enter the cavern beneath the River.

Inside the cavern, I break the surface of the underground River,
filling my lungs with the cool, damp air that few have breathed.
I marvel at the smooth, alabaster stone
illuminated as if by a hidden moon.
I make my way out of the water, up the footholds of the
 cavern-
towards the portal opened to a brilliant blue sky.

Your face appears- skin honey-bronzed by the desert sun.
Burning eyes so impossibly blue, my heart aches at the sight
  of them.
Your golden, honey-brown hair ruffled by the slight breeze.

Your hands meet mine, lifting me through the portal,
into the desert scape of my dreams.
I glance back at the way I had come,
to find it now transformed into a glimmering spring, nestled in  
  the rocks.

I remember this alien place from dreams.
Where rocks tinged red by the unrelenting sun,
the bare bones of the earth exposed,
and worn down by the ravages of Time.
They cover this barren realm
and form smooth hills, rocky plains, and towering plateaus.
Interspersed throughout
are pools of crystalline water,
that reflect the blue of the sky by day,
and by night, mirror the ebon darkness ablaze with unfamiliar
  constellations.

Long ago we met, in this place out of Time.
For a brief moment, all our dearest hopes seemed a possibility.
But we awoke to find it all a barely remembered dream,
that danced like sunlight at the edges of our memories.

With our hands entwined,
We could do nothing except stare at one another.
No longer haunted by the memories of our dreams.
For now our dreams have merged.
Giving form to the life once thought impossible to us.

In the distance, a verdant wood beckons.
Twilight softens the landscape,
transforms the desert into a gentler place.
Shades of amethyst and corn flower blue
halo everything with a wistful glow.

"Come," You whisper, in a voice like the shadowed night.
Love is lost to us no longer.
Eternity awaits us beyond the Twilight."

This poem came to me in a reoccurring dream.

Here goes 2 more...

Song

I call upon Anubis.
Your ancient Names echo within my soul-
Anpu...
Yinepu...
He Who Is Upon His Mountain...
Circle of the Horizon...
Foremost of Westerners...
Claimer of Hearts-
You have ever held mine within Your Keeping.

Your smooth, dark voice called to me from dreams,
And whispers to me in the waking world.
The shadowed night held Your form,
alabaster skin shining in the darkness.
Your eyes mirror the night sky,
dark oceans to lose myself in.

Sandalwood and jasmine announce Your presence,
and intoxicate my senses.
Your cool hands envelope mine,
drawing a sigh from my lips.

Within Your eyes lost worlds reside...
I see a sky so blue, my heart aches at the sight of it-
The sun setting the western sky ablaze,
it's fiery glow reflecting off an endless sea of sand-
An alabaster temple overlooking a sapphire-hued oasis.
Inside the temple- the perfect blackness of a winter's sky,
alight with innumerable stars, where Time flows ceaselessly.
And the echoing silence within the temple fills my entire being.

Within me dwells Your flame that burns with the cold fire of
   starlight.
And my soul warms itself by the heat of that stellar fire.

You are the song that fills my heart with joy.
Your Name is the prayer that dances upon my lips.
And in all my searching,
You are what I have always yearned for.

*******        ***********

Beauty Found

I've found beauty in this melancholy
that has shadowed me all my days,
who wraps his cool arms about me-
leaving me yearning for more.

I've found beauty in this sorrow
that lives just under my skin,
that whispers bittersweet nothings in my ear,
in a voice like the shadowed night.

I've found a preferred beauty in the quiet dark of night,
in the ocean of blackness, a blaze of stars adrift upon its
  currents,
and the sweet breeze that perfumes our dreams
with wistful thoughts and longing sighs.

I've found beauty in the icy winter
when bare trees lay in stark beauty, silhouetted against a
  leaden sky.
When the sharp songs of crows echo in the frigid air,
and the profound stillness of winter permeates deep into my
  very bones.

I've found beauty in this cloak of shadows that I wear,
woven with strands of melancholy and sorrow; of night and
  winter.
Huddled in this dark and wondrous cloak,
the memory of You shines like a beacon, undiminished by Time's
  passage.

I love your classical style.  It might have been written in the 1700's.  Gorgeous.  :rose:  :rose:  :rose:
