WHERE LOVE TAKES YOU

WHERE LOVE TAKES YOU

IT WAS ALWAYS THE GOAL TO LOVE COMPLETELY,

TO MOVE BEYOND THE WISTFUL YEARNING,

TO COMMIT WHOLE-HEARTEDLY TO ONE,

THE ONE AND ONLY, ONE.

 

AND SO I PRESSED, BODY AND SOUL,

EVERYTHING INTO THE UPLIFTING OVERTURE…

THE SOARING STRINGS BORE ME UP INTO THE SKY,

ICARUS TO THE LAST.

 

AND YOU DREW BACK YOUR WINGS,

JOINED ME IN THIS ADVENTURE,

AND YOU BID ME FLY HIGHER…

SO WE FLEW INTO THE SUN.

 

THIS IS THE POINT BEYOND ART,

YOU NEED WISTFULNESS TO MAKE ART,

BUT THE POET SATED SINGS NO MORE,

JUST CLINGS ON FOR DEAR LIFE.

 

AND THEN YOUR WINGS CATCH LIGHT,

AND YOU CRASH AND BURN…

AND YOU ARE ICARUS NOT ME,

I AM DAEDALUS… AND I FLY ON ALONE.

 

BUT I SEE YOU IN EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL,

AND MY HEARTS TEARS IN TO GOBBETS…

FRAGMENTS OF LOVE, SNIPPETS OF MEANING,

AND THE POETRY RETURNS.

 

BUT THE POETRY IS A FACSIMILE

OF THE HONEST TRUE LOVE,

NOTHING CAN REPLACE THAT FEELING,

YET STILL YOU CARRY ON…

LET’S JUST CARRY ON.

 

TO ALL MY FRIENDS HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR, YOU DESERVE IT. WE ALL DESERVE IT.

DALE ‘M’
