Just a Blink In Time With You
I seldom take the time to tell you
How I truly feel inside.
How I couldn't live without you
How you make me feel alive.
Running out the door to work
Stolen kisses, soft and sweet
Work, then home, then off to dreamland
The next day lather, rinse, repeat
All you need is just a moment
a fraction of my busy day
To dance to an unsung love song
To turn and swing, to move and sway
Turning off my favorite show
to sit and talk of future plans
Put the toilet seat back down
(and don't forget to wash your hands)
To do the dishes after supper
And then to dry the pots and pans
All the ways to say "I love you"
With just a smile, a wink, a glance
Holding hands beneath the table
To promise that to you I'm true
I find that all I've ever wanted
is just a blink in time with you.
Sense of Purpose
Whirling, twirling, dizzy
Goals, hopes, aspirations
fly past me in a dizzying
dance of dreams...
I see them all at once
through eyelids cracked
from squeezing them shut so tight...
Try to grab them all
but hands come back hollow
as dreams/life passes me by...
Pick one, stalk...wait...
Strike at a dream, grab it, hold it
Razor edge cuts me to the bone...
Release back to the swirling storm
from which it came...
Scarlet drops of shattered dreams flow...
Hang my head, beat my chest
scream in silent agony at everything/nothing
Begging for just a moment of peace...silence...
Purpose...but finding none.
