A second, Love... (Two in a Row)

A Second

Heaven found a space,
a second to feel free.
An end to the never-ending search
for the Ever Unreachable She.
The stars stay where they are,
belonging to night skies.
One soul,
one heart,
one theft,
one short second to hold her
before she finally left.


The day flies by.
The night is kept dry.
Not a second of doubt,
not a moment of fear.
Freedom's perfection.
Life without love,
without any rejection.

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.
