In Your Loving Eyes

In your loving eyes

I find the peace I’ve longed for

Perfect companion

Life Altering Change

Life altering change

Whether for better or worse,

Unavoidable.

At times they can bring on tears

Whilst at others there is joy.

 

Perhaps perfection

Does not come without its pain

Though perfect it is.

Everything’s as it should be

In the eyes of the Divine.

 

We are intertwined

With others on this journey,

Friends, kin and strangers

Struggling to understand.

Who would I be to judge them?

 

Should I not just love,

Embracing their inner light

And divine essence.

Honoring them as sacred

As I wish to be honored.

The Spark Extinguished

The spark extinguished,

There is no kindling to reignite the flame.

Light as air, the ash is blown to the four winds

Until nary a trace can be found.

What proof is there that it ever really existed

That it belonged to this dimension.

Attempts to congeal fail

As the miniscule journey ever farther afield.

Their mark on this world, nil in the eyes of many,

Insignificant and unimportant,

This would be wrongly assumed.

We would not know this place without them,

So intertwined is all matter

That without the most minute speck

Life would be forever altered from this reality.

There is nothing insignificant or unimportant,

From the lowly ash and graceful dragonfly

To the mighty elephant and the whole of mankind,

Everything visible and invisible is the perfect creation…

Under Heaven.

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

 

Perfection (Acrostic)

Predisposed to this ideal

Ever seeking, ever clawing, ever failing

Reaching the peak only to slide down

Falling, falling, falling

Etched with scars we are chided

Corralled into striving for greater greatness

Tortured and tormented into anxiety

I am obligated, I cannot disappoint

Only to find their utopia just beyond reach

Never realizing you have been perfect all along
