Zeus Impending
Four letter words
bloom like petals
of invitation,
opening a seed
that denies nothing.

Yet I fear my
as it takes hold
our stresses,
once more
that rose of
delicate perfection.

Whisper sweet though,

remember time is short,
but intense with forever.

Taking Liberties With Methuselah

I flogged my pen across the page
In search of something true
But all the words I plagiarized
Were written just for you

I used a clever metaphor
So cunningly disguised
As songs to praise the deep blue sea
That really meant your eyes

I wrote about the sands of time
Yet kept the meaning terse
And gambled that you’d understand
My need beneath this verse
