There is a reason, why someone passes
through your life.

 There is a pathway,
In the synapses
of my mind …
There is a step
in the viscera
... Of my life.
There is a place
on the surround of my porch
That only you,
Have brought an enlightening torch.

Everyone’s life …
Has a treachery and a Climb…
I spend ages of time …
Whimpering about mine …
Until I see the man,
... Who has only hands
with which to reach his life’s pines …

Bus Ride is a daily tutor.
Words, are clumsy
As rough as stubble.
Words do nothing but stumble,
With Heaven’s blushing strokes this beautiful.

Why do I act as if the door on my life has no door knob?
Me to me:
Open the door, Silly!
