Plato’s Soulmates

You were the one who told me of creatures
Split in two for being too powerful.
You were the one who conjured me seer,
And filled my recognition overfull.

But in the moment you scorned the story,
Highlighting what Plato said that denied
The magnificence of this love-majesty.
Yet it returned to me in love revived.

As we two met in the moonlit star night,
I recognized your soul and my own twain,
Tangled and wrapped in darkness’ self sight
You came to mine, and you loosed my chain.

Each word emitted, now embraces my soul,
For time decreed that you and I must go

Away, and for this time I sometimes mourn,
Though I wish to wish only what is here.
But what twisted between us and was born
Became in me a new sight, made me hear.

So you have melted into what I live now,
Tangling into webs the blackened trees
You’ve never seen, so tell me just quite how
Your breath is what into my soul life breathes.

Fear comes with this life I find solely in you,
For somehow, I find life in Him as well,
But I hope, and ask if all we are is true,
Or if our eternal song has passed its swell.


And the Lights Begin to Show

All the world is now gone black.
For light is now soon coming back.

The flashes….
They jump.
Again and now,
They light up.

Where melody had come with its sweet song…
Now you play

Manmade and dank,
Crowds out pain,
Ascend the chain
Of Satan’s gain,
He told againto make us say,


It is not some elegant romance tale,
But just a moment of real, given hope.
In the stupid bowling fun night tangle,
Humbled in each well-foiled forward lope.

The glance was almost kind and out of him,
Not the callous flirtations of our own,
But a human touch of his compassion,
That escaped my notice and world renown.

Could it be that a heart lives in the beast,
That managed only to scorn all before,
At his arrogance before now I’d flee,
But now I wish to see behind the door.

Perhaps in time I could see what’s in him?
But no, for now he has withdrawn within.
