Year in Review 2014

My own version of my year in review varies so greatly from yours

the big bang theories and explosions of my poems

on the screen

is still unseen

and my followers are beautiful

especially you

and my words are floating in space

this dead feeling along my visited place.

I should be proud

but I’d rather not be seen in a crowd

except if you are there

close enough to smell the perfume in my hair.

All my versions of this year I want to burn in a fire

leave my soul out for hire

give it away for a little while

so I could sleep

in such a lost deep haze

guitar sounds could not wake me

only your hands can take me.

The year in review

is not really my type of cue

to carry on my shoulders or brag

because it painted my colors in a different hue

you broke down my guard

with the persistence of a great bard.

I keep quiet but

I like the way you hit me hard with all your gust

I fall down and you make me believe

in trust.

Every year with you is a better one.

Close my eyes and feel the heat of the sun

that bears down on both of us.

Happy New Year

it’s coming closer don’t you fear

I’m here.

Happy New Year everyone. Peace. Love. Trust. Hope. Truth. Cheers to 2015.
