Co-chothrom / Balance

I remember him..

small years

specks of dust in immortality

a lifetime in oblivion..

Strong gaze

clear thinking

direct-ly soft at the core

patiently towering

lost in the wilderness

trying to collect and hold

Hold on..

to you

to me

to himself..

Discover who he was

between the blows

the bitter stench of alcohols

uncaring love struck Kiss..

Tender-sweet to the taste

in our hidden moments..

Poetically lyrical in thought

out of step with time

we fitted into each other

through each other..

Without I drift on the current

trying to find some balance..

Tidal waves inside surging into

darkest midnight

adrift in howling storms

Lost inside the darkness within

the waves

searching for the light

that in that moment past

shone only once forever

inside deepest pools

of loves

midnight blue..

lost to oblivion

Reflecting on into the Darkness…

Love seeps into the heart
warm and Fluid
rushing
flowing
pooling
Deep within
every sinew…

Pulsating with life
part of the whole
Connected along maternal lines
platelets ruby red
freshly oxygenated
At the touch
of Life
my gift to you…

In return
you offer iced chilled pain
siphoned technology
Cobalt blue
and copper wires…
care distilled through barriers

Technological last moments..
sheer image
of my son’s becoming
To me..
to himself
Stark reflections
of the cold unwelcoming world
inhabited now…
from Home

Distance
life’s
dying
Kiss…
