Twenty First Century Courtship

Can’t be sure how many holes I’ve dug

I’m my own worst enemy, I’ve lost count

Although —

My time isn’t the same as yours

I keep very different scores

My favorites aren’t like yours at all

And I am an old soul through and through

Is it all in my head?

My consciousness dances

A scenario or two prances across my mind

No one is waiting this time

I’m not waiting on anyone either

Over a year and a half, still don’t know what to do

Cold slab of marble or 3 Lit Candles?

That marble sounds good to me — easier.

Those candles represent a fire of possibility — much harder.

Okay, it’s been a while since I woke up but…

Light it up, light it up!

  2. Realisation of an old soul, You woke up, You brought the stardust. No wonder you did sparkle.
    Do you know that your consciousness dances to the melody of that someone waiting for you, only for you, longing , yearning with trust on you.
