Will I Ever Know the Outer Fringes of You?

Will I Ever Know the Outer Fringes of You?

Will I ever know the outer fringes of you?

Will I ever let you know mine?

What can be found in your out skirts?

I’ll tell you what you might find in mine…

A slow down sign or two

A proceed with caution sign too

I’ll only roll out the red carpet to welcome you into my inner city

For the lone traveler just…

There is a smell and feel of dawn long before the light

Dawn smells like:

A newborn’s breath on my cheek

My lover’s kiss on my eager lips

A hug from some one I’ve not hugged in a while

The Sea Owns the Tide

The Sea Owns the Tide

The sea owns the tide
Just like the moon owns the night
Just like the sun owns the day
Just like the stars own the sapphire hued heavens
Just like the light owns the dark
Just like the darkness owns nothing
Just like nothing owns the abyss

The sea owns the tide
Just like the grave owns life
Just like life owns all that is everlasting
Because death is not final

The sea owns the tide
Just like…
