CRACKERS AND MARGARINE
We were drifting from each other
as our lives were intertwined.
How cruel and sad it is to discover
our promised marriage was unkind.
Walking through a peaceful forest alone
We would amble while we sighed and moaned
Maybe then soon we could open up our eyes.
Hiding feebly behind our smiles disguised
We once thought there was scarcely alive
anyone so welcomed in our Paradise.
We were gladly invisible from the world outside
Disappeared in glory as our thoughts did coincide
Nevertheless it is woefully true
The Eden was only chosen for the wise.
Lost from reality in our puppy love and dreams
Overwhelmed and flabbergasted we never realized
the lack of common sense would be our demise!
Never nurturing our sentiments and cold as it seems
we concealed our deeper emotions and flew
out of orbit and stood speechlessly surprised.
Looking into your face and seeing the emptiness
has rattled my consciousness to postpone
my compassion which has gone unglued.
Weakened I ironically grimaced and groaned
Still one more opportunity may be within a caress
However an understanding may appear impossible
I remember our boundless love and want us to salvage
the years of our togetherness and heartfelt tenderness.
Otherwise the easier path comes with the irresponsible
actions of a blundering stupefied clown with no vantage
point to consider! Let’s save this bliss we called our own!
Pretending I courted the forlorn little princess
who coyly blushed as I raised her flowing veil
fondling with my fingers gently over your cheek.
Nonchalantly easing your worries to coalesce
our romanticism to conquer all that’s bleak.
Devoid of rationality we melt to a nightingale
song with this mystic moment of affections.
Once the blushing is replaced with breathlessness
our sumptuousness returns as sweet perfection.
Our steadfastness reappears and stick-to-itiveness
along with the courage for a partnership. This is in comparison
to resignation something we absolutely appall as weak.
Please allow me to sweep you from your feet
and reenact our pulsing passion in utter excess.
We will possess no timidness as we seek
a solution to weather us through as we prevail
over our anxieties which dissipate and fall into oblivion.
