Alien

space

~

I fell in love with an alien

Both of us from different worlds

As we traversed this scary planet

Hidden desires unfurled

~

He once touched my hand

Just as we drifted apart

And in that moment

He stole my heart

~

I catch a glimpse of him

As we continue this pretense

Eyes meet for one split second

Passion blazing intense

~

But we both carry on

As if nothing’s amiss

Dreaming of the day

We might steal a kiss

~

Dark is the night

As I make my way home

Empty house, cold bed

It’s all monochrome

~

Observing the stars I imagine

An alternate reality

We are on our own planet

Holding hands, him and me

 

 ~~~~~

~~~

I saw him again the other day

We shared another piercing gaze

As we strolled through the human fray

 He looked weary, drained, and dazed

~~~

I wanted so badly to touch him

To comfort him and take his pain

For the chances of escape are slim 

Trapped on this runaway train

  ~~~

Confined through no fault of our own

This plane killing us one day at a time

Death and Destruction chill us to the bone

Punished for a nonexistent crime

  ~~~

 Yet for one brief moment our eyes meet

Intensely passionate gaze

Two souls bursting with ecstatic heat 

As the spark grows to a blaze

  ~~~

 But then we move along

He goes his way and I go mine

Alone and struggling to be strong

As our souls reach out and entwine

  ~~~

 Another cold night slowly goes by

We’re just tiny specks trapped in granite

Searching for our homes in the sky

While on this dark, scary, alien planet

 ~~~

~~~~~

 

This time he appeared in the pines

Watching the water flow by

I felt his hand enclose mine

And I knew it was goodbye

~~~

His hand so warm and face aglow

I wanted so much to follow

But then he let go

And I never felt so hollow

~~~

My heart burns with desire

While simultaneously grieving the loss

Of our love smothered in the mire  

Too many bridges to cross

~~~

Like the river flowing

He faded into the distance

My pain and sorrow showing

As I question my own existence

~~~

Cold wind freezing the tears

As they slide gently down my face

Wolves howling through the years

I’m still trapped in this place

 

~~~~~

 ~~~

Lone alien displaced

Disguised as I roam

A lifetime chased

Searching for home

~~~

Everything feels wrong

Until he caresses my neck

A memory so strong

All that’s left in this wreck

~~~

 His essence still lingers

Moment of bliss

Touch of his fingers

Sweet taste of his kiss

~~~

Memory so fleeting

I stumble in the gloom

Keeps my heart beating

Another day in this tomb

~~~

Searching the sky again

For a lost piece of my soul

Exhaustion and pain

Taking their toll

~~~

Surrendering my sword

I remove my disguise

An alien stranded in an alien horde

Bounded by illusion and lies

~~~

Somehow he finds me

Broken and torn

Drowning in this sea

Waiting to be reborn

~~~

 He slips off his cloak

Nakedness exposed

Passion evoked

Loving arms enclosed

~~~

Suffering no longer

In this barren abyss

Together we’re stronger

Following our bliss

 

~~~~~

 

I discovered it was all just a dream

Another illusion to distract me

Deceptions and lies polluting this stream

As I float helplessly out to sea

~~~

Only now I embrace the pain

And accept the lessons of this realm

Realizing there is everything to gain

If I merely take over the helm

~~~

No one around to hold my hand

As I navigate this Hell on my own

Love is like a grain of sand

Or a seed that couldn’t be sown

~~~

It is warm and enticing

But in the bitter end

It’s self sacrificing

And cannot pretend

~~~

I must find my own way out

Sailing life’s chaotic extremes

Forging my personal route

Resisting the enchanting dreams

~~~

I don’t regret our loving dance

Memories of fire and desire

It simply had no chance

On this treacherous planet of fire

~~~

I don’t know what’s real anymore

In this place of illusion and lies

Alone again, I make for the door

Wearing my clever disguise
