~ Drifter ~ By ~ Reaper
Climbing veins lacing sky-scraping arches
Fanning flaring delicate architectural branches
Flourishing fashionable rose stained glasses
Scattered shattered amidst ruined circumstances.
Once exciting still enticing still drawing my eye
Upward through shadow to her cobalt sky
Reaching far beyond her deepening sigh
To a wandering Star heralding on nigh’
Patiently waiting silently praying for a whisper
One word one touch one loving sweet whimper
One kiss one embrace for a lonesome drifter
One tender push more along life’s endless river.
Pacing as a panther padding dark hallowed ground
Every sense alert for word from the profound
For my prayer to be heard for my heart to be bound
For Her passage to open, for my paradise found.
Stilled stayed motionless breathless entranced
Distilled free-willed, if only She chanced
One moment to tender the embers in my heart
To share her Love tear my pain apart.
Paused delayed dismayed by Love’s absent ways,
I abandon my prayer within an insomniacs haze
To settle down, stretch-out on blessed ground
And wait for words that make no sound.
Shadows fall beneath night’s bitter shroud
Stars emerge their pinheads bowed
Dreams soften the pound from away down town
Yet still there comes no sound no sound
Yet still there comes no sound.
Hands pass midnight in perpetual revolve
Darkness thickens evolves dissolves swallows
Colours thoughts coals, back into black night
Black dreams, black doors, blind sight, once more.
Hope like sleep wakes a quiet time to cry
To sigh to lie to fly this night beneath her sky
I won’t dream without her flattering my eye
Without her heavenly sigh as my high
Tears slip slide glide spill else fall and fall
This foolish drifter, space shifter, time-rifter
Knowing of dark hours proceeding the dawn
Knowing beyond this time my life will go on.
When mystery arrives, she surrounds me softly breathing
Pushing pressing pleasing reaching seizing
Eagerly pleading feeding teasing tempting me
Far beyond darkness and the final end I see.
Now yearning I’m turning tilting stilting wilting
Shifting, lifting, gliding gilding soaring,
I’m pouring, I’m flowing glowing streaming
I’m gleaming I’m screaming redeeming I’m bleeding
Feeding finding meaning receiving believing
Feeling her breathing keeping me dreaming
Beaming teeming proceeding leaving evening
I’m fleeting I’m fleeing, infusing I’m fusing
Sowing growing showing I’m dawning greening
Weaving winding straining gaining sustaining
Retaining reigning I’m remaining praising exclaiming
And drunk with Love for my drifting Star.
