Crossroads

Crossroads

I flirt with the end

Balance beam everything

So I can feel Grace

It’s shame and blessing

Of exclusivity and at once excluding

A Child of crossroads

Playing hide and seek

This way or that

Loving and despising

The tightrope

Choking what is left and right

Closing my eyes

To recall the thrill

Of it all

The ease of which I bring

Sweet Suffering

To my doorstep

And to speak of boundless joy

I only toggle in its surrender

Ever-Changing

Ever changing am I

A chord progression in song

An ending of a season

The leaf that withers

And blooms as plant on the ground

I beg of you

Don’t seek to nail me down

Into this or that

I’ll fail each and every time

I always color outside the line

There is no reason nor tale to tell

Only awakening to today

And eternally resting yesterday

A froth of water to shore

Returning to its source

Such am I

Ever changing…. forevermore

Knowing

Somewhere right now

In another realm and time

I’m breathing your scent

Grasping your hand tightly

And Lord I pray

That I embrace that moment

Appreciate it fully

Knowing

What I know now

That this memory of you

Haunts my heart with sadness

Knowing

It can never be again

Taxi Cab

Taxi Cab

I could swear

That I saw you

In the reflection of shimmering lights

Out the window of my taxi cab

We passed over

Memories of us

Like a hitchhiker off the side of the road

The meter keeps flickering

Binary Morse code

I deciphered all its meaning

A bandage for my poor hearts bleeding

New York City rain

Seeping through passenger doors

Like a vision of your body

Each time I close my eyes

I plead, don’t drive me home

Let me stay in this dream

Where your hand doesn’t let go of mine

Until my destination arrives

Like the thief in the Bible

Stealing you away from me

I’ll still leave a tip

For this momentary flashback

Is worth every penny

I swore I saw you…
