goodbye, grief, happiness, hope, mental illness, soulmate,

Here lies a broken man
Here lies a broken man...
fractured in his fragility,
without a plan
escapes with delusions
so much for
a brand new start
Visions of eternity,
crash and burn in her mind
Her delusional imposters
supplant our reality.
Lightning strikes to the brain
burn our happiness to the ground.
On the floor lay my fragments...
her love was the glue
that held me together.
She was my beautiful consolation
my savior... my everything
she was my inspiration,

earth, faith, future, hope, humanity, love, peace,
One World, One Love
O ver and over we dream of
N ever ending happiness with
E ternal earthly peace and harmony
W ondrous as it may seem
O nly a short time remains
R elative to the indefinite past
L ove's power will supplant this
D iabolical system of animosity
O ur hearts are burning with
N ascent yearnings for our
E motional release from distress
L ove will soon obliterate hate
O ne world, living together under one government of love
V ery soon it will be humanities reality
E very day pray, for one world, one love.

Within my soul there is a whisper –
A phantom that once ruled my heart;
At times I feel it softly flicker,
Its aching cold abruptly start
Yet, with a thought it disappears,
As new love’s roots supplant the old,
And lend the warmth of promised years
To this young heart, to bloom and grow.

Life goes on
The love we have for our beloved,
Is like a fountain
That never dries up,
And doesn't cease flowing
In our veins.
But even if I go,
You spare a thought for the one in need,
For life goes on.
My legacy will soon supplant me.
Tears will roll down their cheeks
As they wail and shriek in sadness for my trip,
To where our ancestors are,
Resting in perpetual peace.
But I know one thing,
come the day;
We shall all parade before Him that scans
And kneel in supplication
With saint Longinus.

grief, heartbroken, hurt, husband, lost love, mental illness,
Visions of eternity, crash and burn in her mind,
Her delusional imposters supplant our reality.
Lightning strikes to the brain, burn our happiness to the ground.
On the floor lay my fragments...her love was the glue that held me together.

Can memory destroy vision,
if the tables turn
Can time surpass insight,
as its distance churns
Can faith supplant reason,
from its place on high
Can love be the fifth season,
—and our final goodbye
(Villanova Pennsylvania: October, 2016)

faith, life, love, passion, philosophy,
Do not let the ease by nature blind
The eyes that sear a pathway throughout the night,
And do not let the complex cloud the mind
To love revealing unobstructed sight?
Do not let the glamour of the swan
Obscure the heart with beauty and desire,
And let the first impression thus be gone
To glean the duck that flies beneath the wire.
Do not let the shallow sight supplant
The struggle to be more than simple clay
And do not let the hard way disenchant
For sometimes harder is the better way.

age, betrayal, marriage, seasons,
Seasons change, love remains; my heart stays soft.
In marital bond, your touch soothes the hard.
Though less gentle fondness falls from your mouth.
Through gale storms and glee, I have held my mouth.
In the autumn of our lives, I need soft,
lambent serenades to supplant the hard.
Each cycle through time has made your bind less hard.
Weathering me brought you down to your knees, soft.
Still no affinities fall from your mouth.
My lover's mouth, blustery and hard, be soft.
