In times of shifting landscapes

by

Bluebeoulf

It seems to me

At once we thought of us as meteors
Flashing remnants of some distant sun
One hovering nowhere, the other earth bound
But when we collided in an unexpected crossroad
We became each otherís scourge
Trapping then revealing prism like
The dark shades of our encumbered souls

Suddenly you are gone
For a life you can never have and
Left behind I wondered
Another clanís heirloom porcelain
Must have been broken by my callused hands

We meet again
In time of shifting landscapes

The sun sets down on us now
For finally it has framed in stillness
A horizon though blurry somehow
But devoid of gaping holes and ugly scars
Of leveled molehills, not the mountains we feared
When we first made that open-mouthed kiss

Someday over a cup of
A quixotic fellow traveler, a lover almost
Who tried to catch a dream in your audacious sighs - -
A tale of immense passion indeed
But in the end pointless
As the smoke coming off your burning cigarette

Someday over a cup of coffee
You may recall with a smile
A quixotic fellow traveler, a lover almost
Who tried to catch a dream in your audacious sighs - -
A tale of immense passion indeed
But in the end pointless
As the smoke coming off
