By Light


close eye, drift a while

embraced by light, file

pleasure is bought by guile

in sight, a romance vile


the heart speaks honestly

while mind struggles tilting,

those careful words haunt

spilling onto page, now gaunt


so I regress to a region of distress

music waking me, dancing bliss

a moment to refocus the fist

open hand for a reminisce


all previous breaks grow old

eventually strides out blood bold-

fear the honesty or renege on the told

none dare offend the already sold


opportunity to escape with wing tiredly

I reach, and the ego drops audibly

master of the moment- stress calling

steady breath, long legs falling


forgive cracks in diamond soul,

reform passion with vital tool

remind me of love's role

until I return as a fool
