If we could believe we were
to bounce back
and pain wouldn’t matter
would be the sedentary
mechanics of a sad existence
we all fight to avoid
there are those
moments of happiness
keep us wondering
We wander in our minds
I wander in mind
always wanting some
to let me feel a certain joy
I am lacking my happiness
©️ Scott F Savage 2019
I would if I could
capsule the beauty of a moment with you,
the sweet aura
effortless in the desire,
the comfort within sharing our hearts,
sharing our hearts
the soul of our passions
evolving like the serene nature of the seasons,
yet holding onto the autumn of
what might be
my own vulnerability,
belongs inside the heart of two people
who know the truth of
their own futility,
and then we move forward,
lives enhanced inside the wonder
of a summer
when our wishes were allowed
the Grace inside the wandering mystique
the mystique of love

If only in a moment, we might listen to our heart.
We might trust love will always exist in those quiet frames when alone we wish, we ponder, we allow our mind to wander to a softer time when we could just live within the scope of our passion.
If only in a moment, we might trust our soul.
There will be an ache because we have once known love, felt it, yearned its Grace inside a wonderful travel of sweet elegance. We can look to a beautiful sunny winter’s day and recognize there is a certain splendor in the air having the ability to recognize that emotion did bring us to a region of our heart will always be ready for quiet reflection.
If only in a moment, I might remember eyes.
For that quiet recall, I will see love, and hold on to her magic forever.
~ finding my way, a personal journey ~
Perhaps a song on the radio, the most familiar way to recall the one we love. A drive along a familiar bi-way where conversations took place, hands were held, knowing smiles replace the lonely absence. A farmhouse on a piece of land that had a place to sit and run our hands through landscaped rocks while watching the woods. A bench in a park that held our lives together, alone with such sweet sensuality impossible to ignore. A walk further in, a familiar bridge in a rustic wild in a place that felt like Purgatory.
Trying to figure out ways to recall what love means is certainly a struggle when one is alone with the memory. Seeing a kiss in a movie reminds me of that one time, or any time or any moment, or that moment. Looking outside into a tranquil wintry afternoon leaves the mind imagining an experience, a time when conversation turned to intimacy, turned to eyes, and what love seemingly did mean in the moment. All these memories, all of this confusion.
I’m listening to the Moody Blues, because this is always the place I go when I try to find my center. Now more than ever, the feeling of sentiment has turned to regret, a pause in the romantic nature of whom we were, and now trying to find a way to walk out of the woods with a smile rather than a broken heart. It is a memory that recalls beauty and in that recollection the melodrama perceived in the reader’s eyes matters little to the writer, for he will experience the emotion, and the reader can choose to walk away.
I’ve written for miles my confusion with love. In my basement there are volumes of memory over decades of time, that someday I might page through, but for the moment I’m drawn away because I know the memories are too strong and I don’t want to find myself somewhere I would rather return to than just recall. Yet, today, the memory is immediate, still strong, still this is defining who I am every day when I wake and when I go to sleep. The love I feel is swollen in my heart and there is little room to breathe.
So this passage is only meant to touch on what is this meaning of love I continue to search for answers to, my soul searching sometimes bringing me to tears – I try to call them wonderful tears because without the sensation of what I feel, I could not cry with the feeling and cleansing I do find myself lost in. I wonder if that makes sense to any of you readers, the point is that despite heartache, my inability to find home again, I’m still always wanting this time to be a beautiful mystique without the negative fortune of loss.
This is a love story.
Oh one might suggest
some would say
her own reveal
design the layout
a lifestyle leaves envious
an anxious onlooker.
Yet stop a moment
the beauty mix of fresh brew
in java and sweet elegance,
for it is there we discover
hers is strong,
we the onlooker
blessed by such
is the constant surround of that which we
perhaps weak male
might give solace
rather than shallow demand.
For it is hers
this soft mystique
hers alone …
is only that of the
delicate a flower
Glimpse of the vivid colourful shades on a palette of chaos
Loving everything that sparkles, is glitzified and shines in a reality type of life!
Words are the only thing left holding me together.
thoughts of yours & thoughts of ours...would create an unforgettable memoir !!!
