Chance

hands-1579237__180

Say how you feel

While you have the chance

While they’re still around

While they still understand

‘Cause there’s no telling

what tomorrow may bring

You may not get the chance

If you say nothing

So there’s no what ifs

Or might have beens

No regrets no guilt

And you’ll know what’ll happen

Balance what you could lose

Versus what you could gain

Take the chance now

Spare yourself pain

Erato

background-313566__340out of the darkest corners,

and most remote regions,

from behind the shadows,

and dustiest cobwebs,

my reliable companion,

through my highest highs and lowest lows

guiding me

appearing when least expected

doing what you do

just being yourself

the only way you know how to be

Erato,

my muse,

my inspiration,

the fire in my eyes,

the wind behind my sails,

pushing me to lengths and depths

I never thought possible

your alluring green eyes

pierce straight through my heart

driving me to the boundaries of ecstasy,

my motivation,

illuminating my path,

incenting,

encouraging,

opening doors, ever the gentleman,

your subtle ethereal presence

omnipresent in its influence

yet soft as a tender kiss

the stimulus behind my achievements

your influence knows no bounds

such a profound impact

to see,

hear,

feel,

and sense you,

extending my hands to capture you

preventing you from slipping like sand

through my ravenous fingers

Enigma

puzzle-654957__180

Like an expert level Sudoku

Or New York Times crossword

The puzzling cube of Rubik

Or the oddities of Ripley

An enigma wrapped in a riddle

A mystery without a clue

A combination with no key

Secrets wrapped in a shroud

Peeling back your skin like an onion

Exposing a myriad of complex layers

Uncovering little by little

Discovering the whole of you
