Without a Goodbye Kiss

Without a Goodbye Kiss

                                          She said…

                                   My eyes got that look of

Maybe… Fear

Maybe… Excitement

  Maybe… Terror

                                             When storm clouds were coming

                        Over the Mountain in my mind

When she heard the thunder

                        My wife started to wonder

                                                      Not why… But which way

                                      This Poet was going to fly

                                            When the wind

                                                      Started to blow

                                       I felt… Something magical happened

                         Maybe… An electrical reaction

                                 Maybe… Ultimate satisfaction  

                                      Maybe… Things only my soul knows

                        Then I’d fly out of control

                                  Into the unknown… Looking

                                          Maybe… For beginnings and ends

                                   Maybe… For a forgotten sin

                        Maybe… Just to Leave her alone once again

                                    I would follow the storm in my mind

                               Maybe… Trying to go back in unused time

                        Maybe… Chasing the shadow of the shadow

                                Maybe… To design un-designed rhymes

                          Maybe… Just maybe

                               Following words… Over an imaginary edge

                                                  Into my minds abyss

Always… Always

…Without a goodbye kiss…
