Let's Meet In The Middle

Here I am - muse to muse,
holding your fingers in my mind;
moving through Gene and Ginger scenes.
Room fast floored dance
as eyes lock - wanting pleads succinctly.
Guiding falls step great pleasure,
the rhythm turning sun to moon
as strength in arms capture minds,
this sport laughing loudly.

Continuous fired feathers move toes -
the beat tugging animated force
into a fast sliding oneness,
sun-set winks and retires to sleep.
Heaven’s multiverse opening toy-box.
Entranced - here I stay.
Each feeling - wanton, lush-steps,
diving into you - we meet in the middle.

Oh the light! Watered reflection dizzy
as the dance moves on and on under dark sky.
Magical inspiration I love you too,
I glue myself to the wonder of you.
Steps inside past: tears reaching out,
slipping into the reflective thoughts,
I see you and smile my smile for you.
Deeper ripples surfacing - inner you.
Numbed-self crying for times,
those remains I gather and breathe upon.

"Let them lie" I whisper, "let them lie."
Gently the poison is removed,
your teeth pried open as silence weeps .
Anger channelled towards positivity -
walk the steps with ease from herein.
Your will is my command -
I seek out the pain and hold it for you.
You are here now, do not wonder
of past times - I will show you inside me.
Strength shining, that emptiness filled.
No longer alone now, reason returned,
words being - you - being more than words.

Search over! Here I am, smiling for you,
hear the notes, embrace them,
sleep no more my beauty, kissed awake.
The desert watered by my joyous tears
slide your feet in the earth made muddy,
redefine echoes from branched leaves.
Memories smiling away in the heat
of my face using muscles backed down,
illusions - delusions fading, waving
from the other times lived - yet to live!
The ground firm, filling - the whole alive.
Hands take hands and smooth the hurt,
grasp this - save me, save you.

Ah my rose, wanderer be,
please let your music forth for me?
See the stars in my eyes,
foretold events rise,
the journey has begun now,
let me feel you, show me how?
Seeking, your peeks I can see,
time is so generous in setting you free,
all those classroom thoughts learning
tragic romance - come, hear my yearning
feeling for you through the heartache,
pain flipped over - for love’s sake.

Come heal my wounds please
now I have travelled your seas?
Help understanding flow free
as your wisdom sees me,
I cry here, sorrows abound,
the depths of me shaking - unsound.
I chase away your crowds
with the thoughts of love’s vows,
helping you - devour yourself,
stretch all the smiling wealth,
thoughts touch my thoughts,
see me alive - the beauty - the warts.

Subconscious - conscious remembering's
smile - ever so lightly, then brings
the wondrous peace here that’s given
from my heart; the pulsing, so driven,
to be inside your open fire mind
and know that all your touches are kind.

Laugh loud and dance light,
for we gladly bathe in our sight,
sweet silly giggles can soothe
away all those terrible blues,
erasing those mad thoughts away,
yes it is coming. Dance with the day.

Enters you, removes hate - mops puddles,
screams merge, I linger after dreams - banish pain.

Fear slipped into back-pocket, saved for a rainy day,
eyes unveiled, seeing significance in tears - rest now.

Temptations slide away dejected - be yourself,
memory files memory - checks listed notes - closes.
