Crossings

Crossings (Randyjw: July 19, 2017)

 

Paths cross in events

that are always fateful;

Sometimes they’re hopeful —

at other times, fatal.

 

We might feel invisible…

take them for attractions,

deem those fixations,

absorbing distractions.

 

Both hands and fingers

also do sometimes cross:

that what often lingers

is never lost

Love (Four)

Love (Four) (Randyjw; July 15, 2017)

 

For you I hope

all the best in life

children, and home,

a loving wife

Someone to hold you

and someone who cares

someone that’ll love you

who’ll always be there

For these you deserve

and I hope G-d agrees

happiness He’ll serve

to grant you all these

Love (Two)

Love (Two) (Randyjw; July 15, 2017)

 

Never thought I’d depend

way too heavily upon

your presence

to pull me through

to the end

Don’t want to guilt you

and you’re free as a bird

to wheel around through the sky

and find better suit

yet

I appreciate your person

and don’t know what I even do

but I try to razz you up

hoping somehow that it helps you, too

Deja Vous

Deja Vous (Randyjw; July 15; 2017)

 

It’s strange to find

that though you look

to the world

with solely just one mind

and from just one end,

To discover there

on the opposite side

one who sees things alike

as through the

exact same lens

Live Again

Live Again (Randyjw; July 13, 2017)

 

The truce agreed in saying

in truth will be defied

and riches that are gained

may not be realized

 

Unshackle every chain

if freedom you must buy

The body might be lain

but the soul again shall rise

 

A rumor in the main

might mask a thin disguise

A false emotion feigned

compounding every lie

 

Assumptive statements deigned

won’t then materialize

As peace cannot then reign

where vengeful thoughts reside

 

It only causes pain

and hearts to slowly die

This feeling can’t sustain

although it often tries

 

Release the falling rain

held back by clouded eyes

Love is not in vain

in the places hatred abides

 

Share joy and tears again

and live forgived in life

Happiness will remain

in the spaces sadness hides.

Longward On

Longward On (Randyjw; July 12, 2017)

 

The long trek

of a thousand feet

the faceless, displaced

the nameless, unmet

The journey to shelter

just past the next hill

Behind, the wreckage

wrought by orders to kill

reaching the crest

the zenith of purposeful mind

test of mettle and will

to leave it all behind

the road in rubble

piled high with remorse

the hilltops beckon

paths trodden by horse

The grey hood shuts out

the merciless night

the amber of daybreak

marks countless days’ plight

Strike the tent peg

to solid ground

a hollow victory

in another round
