Farewell

This
Is my
Farewell
To dreams
Forbidden
Forgotten
Unneeded
To love
Unearned
And not
Returned
To wounds
Unhealed
To words
Unspoken
To pain
And tears
Fear
And worry
That forge
The links
In this chain
That holds
Me captive
And complacent

This
Is my
Farewell
To this
Invented land
Where I
Built
My own hell
To the
Memories
Best buried
Among the
Broken
Vows
Where golden
Lies
Can ring
Forever
Far from
Hearing ears

This
Is my
Farewell
To the
Battered
Stone that
Hides
The proof
Of a life
Lived as a
Fool
Where fantasies
Of Someday
Of Maybe
Lie shattered
Where they
Fell

This
Is my
Farewell
To the flames
That now
Consume
The remains
Of What Was
Purging
This tattered
Soul
Burning it
Down to
Glowing embers
Until these
Stains
Are bleached
White
Unbridled
Transformed
Until it
Rises
And flies
Free

This
Is my
Farewell

Dreams of Completion

Heavy whispers
In the darkness
Your name
Reverberates
Through the
Stillness
Begging for
Your breath
Your touch
Your very
Essence
Grabbing only
Shadow
And illusion
Madness growing
As passion
Mounts

Can you
Hear the cries?

Does your
Ethereal
Heart beat
Faster
As your
Vapourous hands
Reach
But never
Find?

The pain
The thirst
Insatiable
Desiring the
Impossible
Terrified to
Try
But not
Daring to
Give up
The dream
Of one
Blessed day
One moment
Of intertwined
Flesh
And spirit
Completeing
Finally the
Flame
Long separated
