Sonnet to Some Missing Words

Posted on Updated on

Random letters

When words don’t bubble up through cracks with ease,
an empty shadow hangs above my cell.

A Strictly 3-D Craze

Posted on Updated on

Snapshot_21

When boundless love cannot be full expressed
through hands and words and gestures of the heart —
when skin and soul aren’t there to be caressed —
a vacuum grows, and life is lived apart.

To question why one should be in this state,
enrobed in flesh and orphaned without source,
will yield some startling answers arrowed straight
between your eyes to hit you with full force.

Exploding loveness then goes absolute
in longingful magnetic mindly ways.
For skin is always just a substitute —
a second-best and strictly 3-D craze.

Such yearning fosters grief and loss in some.
But on my knees to God with tears I come.

with all the secret layers of your self.

Posted on Updated on

Why

Why should existences exist at all?
Why should eternity not now apply
to physicality [I know… the Fall].
Why is there even need for questions why?
