Poetry written as it flowed out of me without any laboring and intensive thought. It is one of my biggest hits of late.

Poetry written as it flowed out of me without any laboring and intensive thought. Poetry written in a stream of conscious style and it is some of my best works.


Excerpt

The Departing of Friends


With this kiss I kiss you eternal, I set you
Down to sleep and wrap you in the sheets of satin and lace
And love the candle as its flames trace your face
Like my memories shall leave room for the fire
To burn, forever, like
Love that does not cease
Nor can it leave but it
Moves to burn – I yearn to love you
But like all things of wisdom
I cannot let my foolishness deceive and so I
Must leave,
Leave you sleeping here by the candles light
So you can dream without me
And I can dream without you and we can
Part
Like lovers that neither burned out
Nor ceased to be afire,
But knew better not to get entangled by
The liar.
