My freedom was restrained by earthy needs

a disposable touch without goodbyes

not remembering the color of her eyes

or the taste of her lips for in passing

in strangers beds won’t wait for morning

when promises are only for keeps

in the sunlight of forever lasting.


My freedom was slowed by distractions

built in cages of crimson and gold

where stripped dreams bared and old

unwittingly flew without skies

blinded we become by empty kisses

and the flesh that excel such attractions

while freedom forgotten just dies.
