What may come

Searching through
histories of ourselves
raw and unedited
with the soundtrack
to die for.
He’s been gone so long
yet still so close
like a hangnail festering
alive like a pain to the soul
still here
after all.
Damn, to see that face still can
make me feel
and cry as I wonder
where would he be
if he had not given it all
and lost it all
and left us behind
like a faded street sign wondering
which way do we go
As I’m standing here on the ground
skies always waiting in the sidelines
to all fall down,
but to look at you
in reckless moments
always sparks the fire…
the soul calls for change
while the heart says don’t….
some feet under don’t make anything in the mix
‘cept tears for yesterday,
as we wipe them away and wonder
where does the time go…
where will we go when all is said and done,
and though were not so very young
and oh so pretty,
what a pity to dwell in these pages
songs and lyrics
and voices of yesterday
that still haunt from the depths
of disillusion.
And so we dream on,
Beginning with a word we should not
per the rule books
but what do they mean
if nothing at all
in the grand scheme of things,
for love is what I say,
and by my side
in rooms of faces
we will be ourselves,
clouded images of a history
a before you and me
a collage
of a dream through images
perpetually and always
meant to be.

Watching old INSX videos and reliving my younger years….poor Michael Hutchensce and songs that were a integral part of my consciousness…..Don’t Change, To Look at you, etc….coming up on my birthday and feeling and reeling in the years….The one thing, etc…..yep, still going there….and everywhere๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’œ

  1. I think songs speak to us on both the lyrics and the music. Hope you have a special birthday and I never felt a difference from 49-50 but now over 60, that hit me a little bit!
    Happy birthday to you, dear! ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿ’

  3. Interesting how birthdays make us look to the past in nostalgia (and wistful regrets)… and they also make us look to the future. Hope you have a wonderful birthday!
    P.S. those old songs always do get the poetry rolling. For me it was the late 60’s and early 70’s that does it.

  4. thanks Robbie, inspired by late night Youtube viewing and shocked at how many years have passed when it seems to have been only yesterday, great fodder for writing โค
