‘You’ve Married an Icarus, He’s Flown Too Close to the Sun’

I listen to the lyrics more often then

anyone might imagine,

anybody can cry on cue if they choose

the correct motivation.


The rains have returned

both inside and out

and the feeling is strong,

the quiet damage of love is a ruin.


“You’ve married an Icarus,

he’s flown to close to the Sun”

when the words roll off her tongue

the emotional tragedy is visceral.


I did, do, I will, want, wish, would

cannot find the right phrase, the words

there is a quiet inside the silence of a

spring storm denying a heart its freedom.


I wrote you letters, over and over again,

they were meant to touch your heart, again.

Title is a lyric from Hamilton soundtrack – ‘Burn’

composer – Phillipa Soo

Rainy Days

A compelling desire

to embrace the mystique of a rainy day.


watching the rains

watching the rains


We have memoirs in our mind,

the searing spiral of time

when if we stop for a moment

feel nature’s mist on our skin

brings us to a soft

sweet shower

when we might know again

there is truth

inside the beauty of love.


watching the rains

watching the rains


Watching droplets glance pavement

imagining somber days while

the windows transform to a quiet refuge

wishing her arms would be in my own

the two of us in discreet embrace


watching the rains

watching the rains


there is a certain beauty in the cause of love

when lost in ourselves

allowing time to no longer matter

except this moment,

when eyes do search, feelings surge

toward some urgency

our natural desires do drive our passions


watching the rains

watching the rains


watching the rains in a surreal romance

~ finding my way, a personal journey ~
