Remember Me

Remember Me

 

Cold wet costal today

I escaped

Sat myself behind a sanctuary

The rain beating rhythms

On window panes

Hot coffee and brandy

Warm inside The Athena Café

 

Radio spends its missed tuning

Hissing tinny tunes

Love songs

Of losing

Love songs of having

Love sings

Of wanting

 

Blank the grey sky

Flattering  dreaming thoughts meander

On emotions wandering

Focus themselves

With photographic memories

 

I see

The smile

White satin dressed

Curls of auburn red

All I fell for

All I lived for

My Princess

 

Her crown tilted

The mischievous angels

Of her

 

I sigh

 

As my fingers remember

They once ran themselves

Through your hair

As my lips in accord

Re-taste the peach

Of kisses

I once knew

Sometime so long ago

 

I can hear your voice

Silent echo

A touch in my soul

Sentient it is

Hieroglyphic speaks

Reverberating something

Deep and known

 

My eyes replay moments

Of vague tactile loving

These trespasses

And these memories wishing

Batter at some-where’s

Deeping

Inside of me

 

Aching

Longing

 

Word forms swirl

In printed pages of you

And send messages of distance

So far from me

So far

From you

 

To a horizon which is

Part of me

Out into grey meridians

My heart travels

While my seconds record

The splitter and splatter

Of rain on the window pane

Looking back at me

With your reflection

 

Another cigarette

My coffee cold

And nothing but froth

The heat of my brandy

Matches the twists of floating smoke

Sends my thoughts out riding point

To the cavalry of clouds

With the banner of love

 

Rides wing-ed horses

With fire on their hooves

Lifts all this nescient knowing

Rushes headlong

To you

 

Tiny rippled pools

Drop on the sheen

Dark colours anew

Of rain fall continues

One more coffee

No more brandy

Time to leave slowly

And some how find an end

For this poetry

 

Find a way to Morse code my heart

Out into expansive skies

And wrap my arms

Around you

 

I remember the home

Of holding you

 

The rain has stopped
