REBLOG:Limits On Pain. And Suffering — Words Of An Average White Male

THIS A REBLOG from Words Of An Average White Male’s blog.  Please enjoy this brilliant piece of work and spend some time on David’s blog!  You’ll be glad that you did! 

At some point we learn to limit the pain we allow. Since no one forces us to feel, we must choose what and how to suffer. Brilliantly we will, whether we like it or not, allow a chosen few behind our walls and beyond. In a way, aren’t we our own vault? Much less private […]

Limits On Pain. And Suffering — Words Of An Average White Male

Poison

Like a fool
I let you in

I forgot the taste
of your poison

I drank it down
eagerly

My heart in the line
of fire

At this distance
I thought I was safe

Not so

My heart should
listen to my head

Your poison still
cuts as deep
as ever

Never again

Old Photos

Pieces of paper that hold a link to the past.
The edges are curled; they won’t lay flat.

In shades of grey and black they are bound to the page.
Eyes that no longer see, from a long ago age.

My history, I’m told, in the faces of that time.
The images are cold; frozen in time.

These strangers we cling to, a link to the past.
We long to connect; a link to be grasped.

We close the album pages; trusting again
We’re leaving a link, for our family & friends.

Desires

I justify
what my heart
desires

The anticipation,
an aphrodisiac

Your scent,
intoxicating

Drunk with yearning
You tempt me

again
and again

Not forbidden
but remorse
pangs me

As your sweetness
passes my lips

Angel and demon,

Chocolate,
You have taken
me
yet again.

Living With the Wind

Image by Engin Akyurt from Pixabay
She loved living 
with the wind
 
Her feet on the ground 
and her head in the clouds 

The wind took her 
by the hand and
she followed

Like a kite 
not meant to be 
earthbound 
 
She bestowed her love 
with abandon 
but her attentions 
were brief

For the wind
would call to her

Yet, like a fragrance 
you can't quite name...

for a few, 
she lingered
 
For those, 
she left longing 
in the night
never to be forgotten

And those few
whispered her name

Seeking the girl
living with the wind

“As if the moonlight came from within her, she beckoned me to come home.” The cracks in her iridescent, porcelain cheeks were illuminated from within, lit aflame on that dark, wintry night. It was as if the moonlight came from within her. Her eyes, unwavering, locked with mine. Captivated me. And it felt as if […]
