It’s something you just have to know.
You can’t imagine this; only experience counts.
The momentum immediate and forward;
Spanked, jumpstarted into a half realized allusion.
The purpose was desperate and half-measured,
The night flew colorfully by in sporadic leaps
And bounds and other derelict fascinations.
Hope and worlds fell around us.
The situation was at ease and friendly and
Complicated to the point of blood tied emotional
Inter-mingling. Accepted you’ve always been,
Uncommonly close to my heart you are.
With a life full of color,
The world seems to glide peacefully by.
The experience of escaping the pain
Is unnerving once skillfully mastered,
But one must experience the pain first,
And pain comes in many different shades;
Light and melodic, dark and grieving,
Bright and intense, sharp and bewildered-
And as the ending of these combinations may
Never grace the face of the almighty,
They come day to day for us,
Spontaneous and rich,
Curtained in the flame.
