TWILIGHT'S GLEAM


TWILIGHT’S GLEAM

S.JENSEN © 2017

WINTER SUNSHINE

PEACEFULLY LIT

SHINING SHADOWS

INTO THE

WINDOW

QUIET AND GROUNDED

THIS GOLDEN SILENCE

HAS A SAD TINGING

TUNE TO IT

BUT A UNIVERSAL

GRACE OF THIS

LONELY CASTLE

ONE THING ENDS

AS ANOTHER BEGINS

FOR GOOD OR ILL

THE FORESHADOWING

CONTRASTING SHINE

RESTS THERE

COLLECTING

DUST

HOPING ITS THE

RIGHT CHOICES

I HAVE MADE

TRIALS AND ERRORS

SPACED NOW

AWAY FROM

THE SPIKED TAILED

CHAOS

THAT BLINDED

IN ITS WAYS

AND BACK TO WHO

I HAVE BEEN

FIGHTING TO BE

JUST ME

OH SWEET GRACE

OH TO

THE YOU AND I

I WILL HOLD TO

WHERE ONLY

WE KNOW

INTO THE

FADED LIES

SLIPPED OUT

THE DOOR

TODAY’S TRUTH

IS MY

WINTER SUN

RISING OVER

THE HILL

TO FIND MY

STUFFED HEARING

BLOCKED AWAY

AS THIS COLD

I AM FIGHTING

SILENCES THE

WHISPERS

I HAVE SO

GROWN USED

TO JUST BEING

THERE

WILL I BE OK

I DON’T SEE

I HAVE A CHOICE

WINTERS CHILL

STILLS THE

BRANCHES

IN THE LACK

OF WIND

WHERE MY

BLUE GREY EYES

SINGING THEIR

GLEAMING

LEAVING

STARS IN THE SKY

AND DREAMS

TO ANOTHER PLACE

THIS CROOKED

WAVE ROLLS

IN THE TIDE

OF WHERE I

REST

OH UNDER

THE MIDNIGHT BLUE

TO WADE

STRAIGHT

THROUGH

TO THE ALTER STATES

OF WHERE

MY ARTISTS

IMAGINATION

WILL ALWAYS

LONG TO BE

BESIDE

IN AND OUT

OF THE PULSE

YET I KNOW

ITS JUST TOO FAR

AWAY NOW

SO I CENTER

ON THE HERE

AND THE NOW

SIPPING MY TEA

INTO THE

TWILIGHT’S GLEAM

OF MY MIND’S

SWEET

MEMORIES…

WHERE OH

WHERE OH

SHALL I

EVER FIND

THAT GRACE

IN YOUR ARMS

TO MINE

AS I SIT

ON THE FLOOR

YOUR LEGS

BESIDE MY BODY

AND YOUR IN THE

CHAIR ABOVE

BENDING DOWN

WITH YOUR ARMS

AROUND MINE

AS I LOOK UP

AND YOU LOOK DOWN

AND WE

JUST SMILE

WHILE EVERYONE

ELSE IS BUSY

BUSTLING AROUND

GETTING

THE HOLIDAY

TABLE READY

A MOMENT IN

MY MIND

THAT IS JUST

IN MY MIND…

LOST THERE

LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE

I GO ON

AND I SEEK

A NEW PATHWAY

TO SOME PEACE

AWAY FROM THIS

INTO TOMORROW’S

PLACES

TO CARRY ME

AWAY…

OH SO FAR

FAR AWAY…

SUN SHINING

BRIGHT IN THE

SKY RIGHT

INTO THE GLEAM

IN MY EYES.
