Human Frost

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

We strolled those naive shores of youth

Twenty toes dipping in pond of love and fortitude

While our bodies firm in sweat and scented wet

We were blind to the eventual castings of regress


Everything’s gone foggy soggy or lost

The only wet left is tears of human frost

In ancient searing mist age beat us down

With her watch, her fist, then her crown

But our wanting kept us in search

Where mature love turns soft blue

A color for our never dying thirst

A place in life for me and you

Once higher than any seductive sky

We soared above self-inflicting lies

Till clouds hit mountains and attacked

Settling into the fog of our cataracts

Tarnish eyes curl up in old lashes

Silver stashes hid in Gretchen grey

A country song gone oh so wrong

A most beautiful life betrayed

Sinking from those skies above

Young ones caught our song

And began their trip through love

Glory to all those who shall cum

This most innocent mate of our fate

And long before we must succumb

Wrinkle will raid your face

Yet we will not trade, no!

Not young water for deserts

Nor cool ponding toes

Traces of love’s youngest daughter

The scent in air when we were alone

Nor memories stranded in cataract eyes

For maybe it’s just dust

Or maybe eyes just die

We were young

Then we were old

We were lucky

And oh so bold

We were silver

Then turned gold

As love got stuck

Between our bones

“I love you sweet cheeks” Papa.
