A Poem: Liquid Embrace

 

Lingering in a warm, enveloping liquid embrace,
Listening to rock ballads sing of love in devastating praise.

Sorrow achingly throbs in distant counterpart,
Reaching for memories and emotions the songs once evoked—
Only to feel a stillness void of chaotic love and love’s response,
A calming null that negates right or wrong, it’s all done and gone.

Now, this moment, this hour, this day, mourning burns in dying flames.
What could have been & what has come to be are not aligned to wishful dreams,
Dreams dreamt, yearned for in desperate gravity, no longer exist as remote possibility.
Where once longing, love and cutting actions lived, a mysterious anticipation bids.

Listening to rock ballads sing of love in devastating praise,
Lingering in a warm, enveloping liquid embrace,
A quiet stillness pervades,
Alive with potential dreams.
