Maiden In Waiting

Folder: 
Simple Thoughts

"She had been waiting, 

for her knight. 

Her proper gentleman, 

the one who at night

 

would hold her tight,

the only way

that seemed right

to sleep.

 

So deep,

was her love

for someone she hadn't met yet, 

it kept her away

 

from the others.

No prince

could ever save this

damsel in distress. 

 

She was busy, anyway.

But on one

humid, busy day,

one said hello.

 

And in a blur of a year,

she realized 

she had said 'yes', 

with stone like Ocean

 

adorned on left hand.

She was happy.

She was going to unite 

with one whom

 

she had searched 

her entire life for.

One who loves her

for who she is,

 

and every thing

that implies.

He is no knight, 

no master-commander,

 

just a man

who has a way with words; 

or so he likes to think.

All she wants,

 

is to ink into passing

the change of last name.

A light love story, 

that began two year ago,

 

one busy day.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

When I met me wife!

absence – elvis has left the building

i wake up and think about the sleepers coinage and know that i have to get some more to “live” in their world.. what can i say, i like toys..

and so i reach into the closet for their prison uniform.. the noose goes on so smooth and i look in the mirror…. damn prison never looked so sexy.. sharp angles and flows of febric said as a sign to others that i was a predator among the sleepers.. a shark.. a suit..

 

and i stepped out into the sun.. thinking about this time away from their world.. dipping in it from time to time searching for you.. i thought of my hands that still remembered well the noose that is the sign of a world which keeps us apart..

 

but i do it for you.. i master their world and rise above it.. their sleepers coinage helps me buy the time and means to search for you.. to find you.. to reach you.. so i wear instead a suit of armor.. protecting my lovers heart from their jealous eyes… and wading through their words and doubts and plans and limits as i search for you.. to fly away beyond their grasp hand in hand..

 

but the pain of putting back on that armor.. (heavy and stiff compared to a layer of your smooth skin across mine..) without your touch was almost too much to bear.. so i am sorry for my absence..

just thought id let you know that feelings are always there coming from me to you without even a word.. for we have met and in the flow of life and thought that criss crosses this world we will meet again somewhere and so i wish you well thoughts on that journey..

Life As a Martian

Day by day im on this planet -- the more i realize i jus cant stand it -- wen i was a human i couldn't see -- all of what that was in front of me -- people lie ; people steal ; people cry ; people feel -- so why is it wen we all heal -- we feel da need to put up that shield -- that extra armor to protect our heart -- that extra armor to protect who we are -- we fight the fight to stay our way -- we fight the fight but do not change -- we do not realize this armor is stained -- we do not realize dat we still feel pain -- all we did was block da hate -- we didnt evolve -- we stood the same -- we didnt resolve -- we didnt change -- we live and die as we came -- as human -- then we pray -- to be reborn as something new -- to feel unique to feel beautiful -- now i see the world as it is -- open doors -- i see da bliss -- i see it all -- i see da bullshit -- no longer do i seem dazed -- no longer am i caged -- i am not da same i have changed -- no longer in ur race -- being human not the case -- I'm something new something far -- something different beyond does stars -- so when u approach -- approach with caution -- cause wen u approach ur approaching a martian -- but do not fear - u may come near -- cuz i need to see if u have does eyez -- i need to see if ur my wife -- and if ur not then its ok -- cuz i'll keep searching till da end of dayz -- like that moon up in da sky -- we far apart -- but not at heart -- & even tho I'm on this fucked up planet -- I never really ever landed -- my heart is up there next to u -- and i kno ur beyond beautiful -- I do not feel this earth beneath my feet -- what i feel each day is our beat -- our heart -- our hum -- our music -- our drum -- wat i feel each day is she -- and i will not rest untill we meet -- cuz baby ur my 1 and only martian bride to be ~
