The Universe in Her Eyes

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


There you are. What kept you, my lovely one?

My age, my illness, takes steps from me

Fills me with bitterness, losing love I should have won.

Shaking the earth, you stand gazing what I’m to be.

I am so sorry for the years of pain

Holding you in loving arms, deep and warm.

Laughing at youth our songs so vain.

Slipping from you, shading you from harm.

You seen it some, you seen it all

In one universe so small.

Stars dance, life’s chance, vows are tall.

I see the pain in your eyes, just a wall.

Your tears, oh so real at last

My muted lips, my crippled tongue.

Life went slowly, but death comes fast.

Touching the stars, the worlds, you hung.

Finding your love took so long in years

Now in moment’s breath, a solitary breath.

I see your tears, your many, many tears.

Until we join in unison, smiling at death.
