Attrition

From “A Fine Line “

Late spring

Lilac season almost done

Still light at 8:00

Yet the routine kills

—————

Lavender dreams

Weekend spas

Flowers blooming

Pantiless, in the grass

——————-

You have nothing if you have loneliness

Especially if you’re a sweet soul

Never understood

Appreciated by very few

———————

She smells the flowers

Rejoices

Enjoys her lone splendour

Still in the nest

———————

Attrition is difficult

We’re used to being alone

Crying ourselves to sleep

———————

We bathe in the goodness of newfound friends

Try to let go of the past

But cry sometimes

To feel better

———————

Gimme ten minutes of happiness

For a day of sadness

A fair deal

It’s so delightful

Liberating

————————

My dear

Uncover your facade

Lose your constant giving

Receive some admiration

—————————

I study your face

That wicked half-smile

Hiding all your woes

What I would give to make that smile real

Sincere

To liberate your spirit

Untire your bones

Your emotional baggage

Lift you up

Watch you levitate

That unbearable lightness….

——————–

I write as I wake before dawn

Feeling you

Knowing we’ll meet

Embrace

Kiss

In such an unforced, natural way

With complete freedom

We co-exist

——————

There’s so much to adjustment

But I trust your judgement

And if all that happens stays only in my head

It shall have to be enough

———————–

Attrition

Escape

Freedom

They have found us

At a later age

But we’re eternally young
