I’ll think about you now & then

a dark rainy day

There’s a place forgotten rain remembers falling
beyond a tree line hushing 
whispers in the wind
a seldom breeze defies the time and echo’s yesterday
along with nights a summer rainfall hits the tin
not forgetting as it goes you walked away from here
a troubled wind that changed direction down the bend
I lye awake to watch the rain fall soak the trees
on night’s like these I’ll think about you now and then

We never passed a stormy night by writing letters
and hands of time like yours and mine we never hold
the threads that sew the déjà vu we know together
unstitched by seams of time that leave us growing old
you just can’t wind the hands of time in perfect weather
like on those nights a summer rain fall hits the tin
that’s when I’ll wonder where you went and how you been
on nights like these I’ll think about you now and then ©


King of sorrows pitiful retro

Easy come, easy go it’s said
but could sayer have known
was he grown crying silent
did he feel all alone?
Did he resort to much violence
where his heart called a home?
Was he asked, did he pay
through charity or have not
find his blessings in sorrow
from the love in his heart?

Did he only belong to the reason
he’s longing for love
perform hand surgery
just to fit the wrong glove?
Did he abscond from charges
those criminal tears
assumed years of presumption
malfunctioning tear ducts
heavy in his head
wasn’t known cause he’s fed tears
he didn’t remember crying?

Baby His “easy come easy go”
sounds so damn pleasing in prose
did he write that for money
or for reasons
HE chose?
Did the rain on his tree
cause seeds to be sewn
throwing havoc on kids
feeling sad and 
alone?
Purple rain drowning prince
could he truly have known?

Did he grow up convinced
to have reign to what’s reaped?
Was it love that decided tears rocked him to sleep
easily from the pain
did he consider tomorrow
did he feel just like me
anger that caused
nerve ends to pretend to forget who he was?
Deficits dignity humility in deposits
from having to borrow
Did he receive bills from the pain ?
Was he audited by the person  who caused it
that gave him his name? ©
