somewhere along the way

poem #1
somewhere along the way
the light of dreams will fade
only memories will linger
where once joy was made
sometime from now
the laughter will fade
only silence will linger
where once music played
nothing will make sense
even as the days pass
like a blur or in slow motion
nothing can ever last


poem #2
the whisper trails like silk
soft against the skin
the touch so cool
the promise so inviting
the kiss stops time
leaving only sensation
the soul focused on this
the heart forgets to beat
perfection in the moment
stretching into eternity
one breath locked
etched into the bones
