Sometimes You Can See…

20120301-201531.jpg
It isn’t all that often, but sometimes
You can see love
In tiny pinholes
Bleeding through a ebon sky in variable densities
Light
Ignited
Ancient
Caravanning the distance in waves
Predating the cracks in our fragile hearts
Washing upon celestial shores in swaths we call constellations
But we never really knew them
These eyes in the heaven are to faces unblinking
A glance by chance or divine
Falling across time
Onto a serendipitous second in which elements align
Providing oxygen to my tired mind down here
It isn’t very often, but sometimes
You can see God
Burnt through in the autumn hues of dying dreams
Shaken and piled up for sweeping
Where today’s decomposition becomes tomorrow’s fuel
To wake life where death stirs
Like children coming forth from sleep
It isn’t often, but sometimes
I think that centuries may just be unwitting catalysts
Love, launched long before the orbits breathed a full rotation
Locked in motion
Ancient beyond recognition
Struck here tonight because it was the only place it could go
And we are nothing new
Me and you
Just tiny allegories of immortality
Caught tightly
Spun lightly
And bundled up in woven threads of something
We did not create
Embodiments of unity even the stars do not comprehend
While bending arms of light to touch us
These broken compositions
These stolen notes
We have written in stone over the face of what we know
Are our epitaph
That
We love
And it comes with no permissions
Branded deep within a sky that casts no shadow, but is its own reason why
And so am I
So I decide
That if the sky makes no apology for light
Despite the blind eyes we bear
And if the stars believe the distance here is worth the weight of infinity
And if the pain of decomposing becomes the beauty of tomorrow’s bloom
Then I love you
And it must have been true
Before they wrote the first line of the first word
Or spoke of things like this
It isn’t often, but sometimes
The world moves
For small things
And life springs
From cracked dreams
Under the ancient eyes
In this ebon sky
Where, it isn’t often, but sometimes
You can see love

  1. So many amazingly wonderful lines in this, VW. I’m especially drawn to:

    “We love

  3. Love is hard to see these days with all the shit gonna on in the world but it’s there. You just need to know where to look. Great job as always.

  4. This is an amazing piece of poetry, VW! I have felt this way, since the beginning of my blogging days, but after reading this poem, I am truly in awe of your writing talent~

  6. Oh how emotional words can be….this is pure feeling, I love it…..you have a charm to bring in all the love with using some memorable words….here are my favourite lines,
    “You can see God
    Burnt through in the autumn hues of dying dreams
    Shaken and piled up for sweeping
    Where today’s decomposition becomes tomorrow’s fuel”

    share more of this, Vampire Weather….:)

  7. You are so skilled with your poems. Always moving, they are. I like your last words here though – ‘you can see love’. How beautiful.

    • Thank you for the lovely encouragement. I don’t know that I will be writing anymore. It was my intent to post one per day when I originally began this blog, and it was a labor of love. The reasons are difficult to explain, but I have been left lonely and without my inspiration. My reasons for beginning this now feel hollow. I stopped writing, and have abandoned it entirely. I long for a time when reasons to do so will return, but for now I am empty and without that magic that enabled my work. I’m so sorry. No one wishes more than I that this realm were back alive again.

      Sincerely,
      VW
