..It is not only the most difficult thing to know oneself, but the most inconvenient, too…
-Josh Billings

Blue bird told a story once of loss and ignorance
To dance within the balance of love & imagination
Now within the eyes of Blue this all made sense
I turn my head of dark straight hair
Slowly taking this all in

Then dance beneath your skin, as the willow tree sways peacefully
above our bodies. Then I smile on my conquest as you light a cigarette for two
Mountain cried for my self-indulgence & looked down upon my time of silence;
but I remained strong – allowing only Sun; throwing her rays protectively upon my naked flesh, to penetrate this stance of mine…
And I felt safe within the grand scheme of it all.

The tranquility of sea & grass waiting for my demise pulling me in,
Wanting to tangle me up in something so obscure
I could only look to Blue bird perched up on his pedestal for an answer & the cure.
Yet, solitude seemed my only friend this time – Then you whisper,
Take my hand and we can leave this place & catch our thoughts in butterfly nets.

Then we can bow our heads & say that for the moment we knew which direction to walk.
I sigh, retorting back, I saw her in the shadows & She was like me as I am like you,
A distant shimmering reflection of what we both knew
I touch your face, seaching knowledge in your eyes
Graze my plush apple colored lips over yours
And gently move your tee shirt up and off

Remove my dress again and press my, now excited, body over yours then state
We are slowly falling beneath the currents of this life
And I continue drowning in my silence too afraid to speak
But I tell you this my friend
Blue bird told a story of loss & regret…
I looked up at the sky & thought to myself,
What is left is always left
Unsaid.
