life lines

Act 1

The walks and those talks
Those miles dotted with smiles
Coy, Shy ... Contained
A look ...you miss a beat…Quicksilver Heat
Flickers of Desire
Like moths into the Fire......
cool breeze, cool waves,Smooth white sails
Tranquil Evenings, calm Musings.

Act 2

flashy bikes, solitary lanes long rides ....
geared in overdrive
miles zoom past, adrenalin rushes fast
the wick matures into a flame
moths dies a million... voluble winds,
roll over frenzied waves,Air Over Water,
... a quick kiss
a hasty touch ...and the waves go into a spin.
Madness ... utter Madness,you soar high, high and ... higher
the ballet ... (or is it battle?) ...Air Over Water,
Water In Air
Performance Perfect.
The effect?FIRE!!!
absolute, pure, unadorned raw FIRE!
Nature's applause ...Tranquil evenings solemnly, happily...
steadily unfold the Euphoric
Slow, Dazed Nights ... !

Act 3

the fire engulfs the space...
and hey, it evokes Fear ... of the unknown ... unbeaten ...
And safety is dear,so, mild you play
and run far away,leave the imprints....footprints
want them to fade,lock it up ... forget about It! ... (the Fire!)
well ... do give it a shot ... to forget!
Dreams … (the fire) are foolish, dangerous, they said
and you didn't agree ...you played, you ignited ...
and were still not running for safety,adventure
... the drive ...not ready to conform with them … still there.
Waves lapped, liquid fire invaded your veins ...
and you were, both shaken and stirred
... invited to take it all … give it all
...Invitation of Fire,
End of Existence …
Invitation Denied ...
Existence hugged tight....
and you run and run and
run ...
Dead Pond, Stale Air ...
"Tranquility"You must be kiddin', right?
and then you muse,

"Some Goals Are So Worthy,It's Glorious even To Fail ..."
