All that remains: here in my afterlife as a 'mainstream' blogger, with what little I know.

Does It Have To Be Far From You?

I want to escape somewhere inside
from you
to hear my voice sing
without the contempt
should I wake you --
something awakened.

I want to escape this world,
reality,
send the falsetto free
on changing wind
where sweetest harmony
finds me.

Does it have to be far from you?

Limber in a neon room pulsing,
should I haul you in my arms,
sweep the dusted floor
in limber strides,
carefree of former sorrow?
Would you have me?

If I'm not attuned,
eyes to the moon, wayward stars,
I'm staring directly into
a setting sun blazing
back at me.

One lone star fades
on a barren hill.
I stand on leaves crisp,
air musses the gray
growing despair --
too old to behave this way --

Hiding my heart,
hiding from your dark.
When will our dawn arrive?
if not tomorrow?
Your eyes contain visions
unseen from my vantage.

I clear my throat.
Hiding in my heart,
hiding from your dark,
I ask again,
does it have to be far from you?
