GOOD NATURE


GOOD NATURE

S.JENSEN © 2017

LOOKING

THROUGH A LENS

BACK AT ONES SELF

THEN BACK AROUND

WHERE MY

HEART

ALWAYS LAYS

IN THIS CONSTANT

FLUX FROM

FAR TO NEAR

AND NEAR TO FAR

ONLY THIS

ONESIDE VIEW

KINDA GETS OLD

IN ITS WAY

SO STUBBORN

AND JADED

YET OH SO MUCH

FOR THE LINE

IN MY HAND

WHERE I STILL

BELIEVE

TO BE TRUE

AND FEEL IT

RIGHT DOWN

TO MY BONES

THAT FREAKINGLY

ALWAYS ACHE

BUT NOT

IN A BAD WAY

JUST IN THAT

FOREVER

LONGING WAY

LIKE THE DIFFERENCE

FROM HARD LEATHER

SHOES

AND RUBBER SOLES

TO THE SOFT LEATHER

AND FURRY FUZZY

INSIDES THAT

COMFORT YOUR FEET

WITH EACH STEP

AND SO I WILL ALWAYS

LOOK FOR THAT

COMFORT

WISHING TO BE

CARRIED AWAY

SOMEWHERE

NO ONE ELSE

CAN GO BUT

WITH MY LOVE

IN TOW

INTERTWINED

IN THE COZY NOOK

LIKE A NEST

WHICH LAYS

IN MY MIND

CONSTANTLY

MY FOOLISHNESS

THAT GETS ME

IN TROUBLE

OH WHAT

SWEET TROUBLE

IT CAN BE

IN CLOUDS

WHERE MY DREAMS

FLOW AND

CIRCLE NOT

WITHIN MY LIFE ALONE

BUT THROUGH

OTHERS

THAT SO FEEL

THE SAME

THE MAGIC

OF THE GLOW

OF LIGHT FLOWING

DOWN FROM

THE CANDLE

INSIDE

TO THE SHADOWS

ITS SOARS

IN AND OUT

OF ANGLES

OFF THE WALLS

WHERE I WANT

TO BE

IF ONLY

THERE WAS A WAY

TO SHOW

THE FACT THIS

LENS HAS

SO MANY DIMENSIONS

AND LAYERS

TO SHARE

FROM MY CANDID

RAWNESS

TO MY

TREASURED

ROMANTIC

VIEWS

WHERE I CAN BE

SO GENTLE

IN MY HARSHNESS

WITHOUT

LACK OF FEELING

ITS ROOTED

FROM BELOW

SHOUTING

TO THE SKY

AS IT BENDS

AND SWAYS

FROM WIND

GENTLY WHISTLING

AND THE NIGHT

CRISP AIR

FLOWING FROM

THE WINDOW

CLEARLY ALL

THE LIGHTS OF THE CITY

VIEW BELOW

BLURRED BY

MY EYES GLOWS

LIKE VANGOGH-ESK

LIGHTS

TO THE DOCKS

WATER TWINKLING

LIGHTS ACROSS

THE LAKE INLET

AS I REST ON

THE BRIDGE

CROSSING IN DAY

COLD OUTSIDE

AND WARM

INSIDE

CRIED TIL I COULDN’T

CRY ANYMORE

SWEPT AWAY

IN EMOTION

AS I GO LAY

MY HEAD DOWN

NOW

TO DREAM

OF WHERE

I WISH I SO COULD

BE…

IN ARMS THAT

LOVE

NOT HARM

AND PRECIOUS

GIFTS

OF JUST BEING

EXIST

FOR HOURS

A COMFORT

LACKING

FROM MY LIFE

FOR FAR

FAR TOO LONG

SO QUIET HERE

IN MY WALLS

YET SO MUCH

NOISE ALL AROUND

AND I

DROWN IT OUT

BY THE FAN

TO BLISSFULLY

REST

LOOKING

TOWARDS

TOMORROW

ALWAYS

LOOKING TOWARDS

TOMORROW

WHILE

LIVING IN TODAY

OH TO WHERE

I WISH I COULD

BE

FAR FAR FROM

HERE

YET SETTLING

FOR WHAT I

SO KNOW

AND

FOREVER

NOT KNOWING

BUT SEE

SO LITTLE

YET CHERISH

IT LIKE

DRINKING WINE

TO INSPIRE

MY HEART

AND KEEP

ME GOING

WHERE THERE

IS NO OTHER

COMPARISON

DROWNED

WITHIN

AND LOST WITHOUT

AND SO

LETTING IT

BE

FOR OTHERS

BLESSED TO HAVE

THOSE ARMS

AND HOPES

THAT ONE

DAY

LIFE CAN

BE DIFFERENT

OH MY IMPERFECTIONS

OF SELF

TO THE SWEETNESS

I CARRY

ALWAYS WITH ME

THE INNOCENCE

OF OUR YOUTH

AND BEGINNINGS

LOST ALONG THE WAY

BUT OH HOW

NAIVE I STILL CAN BE

WHERE MY MIX

OF CLASSICAL

TRADITION MEET

UP WITH COLD BLACK STEEL

OF MODERN

AND STILL MARRY

IT WITH NATURE

AND MY OVER

ROMANTIC

VIEWS

LIKE GULPING

WINE IN A RUSHED

THIRST

INSTEAD OF

SIPPING IT GENTLY

AS I TEND TO DO

I SAY

GOOD NIGHT

TO THE MOMENTS

OF WINDS

SOUND

BLOWING

IN AND OUT

OF MY EARS

THOSE WHISPERED

WORDS

NEVER HEARD

ONLY FELT.

- - -

MY SWEET

LOVE WINE

RESTING ON

MY LIPS

IN THE

ETERNITY

OF NOW

DREAMS...

FORGIVE ME

FOR MY STUPIDITY

MY FOOLISHNESS

MY HEART

TEARS FOR LOVE

I DIDN'T MEAN

IT TO TEAR APART

I SAW AND

WALKED AWAY

TO LET BE

WHAT I THOUGHT

WAS WHAT

WAS WANTED

LOVED AND LOST

STILL LOVE

AND NOW I HURT

CAUSE OF

DAMAGES DONE

CAUSE OF A FOOLISH

HEART

CAN YOU EVER

FORGIVE ME

FOR NOT BEING

ABLE TO LET GO

OF MY HEART

<3 ALWAYS!
