Tem ptat ion vs. Rev el ation

what is temptation- a revelation to the darkness
residing in our soul?
what is revelation--temptation truncated before the
ultimate sin?
i am wondering how to see the two and one together.

social gatherings alone feelings being within
the one place you can be yourself
in a lonely room with the sunlight dust motes
wondering if she will read my email

so is this a day of awareness
my own feelings so shallow
i could be swept away by a kind comment
i lost it all so many years ago

worried about my life
the end is very near
nothing reconciled with my own darkness
in my soul.

is there a resolution to my hardness of heart?
will i give into temptation
or sweep it away and learn my lesson
one more time one more time.

some times you know its all a game
based on actions you created
but you don't know that its all been planned
every gesture, every motive.

its destiny you know
you cannot escape the program that has been created for you
forever in the track of time, just for you
some to success, some to failure

everything was preconceived
preknown and predetermined.
the food you eat, the lovers you grow close to.
no one is excluded from the drama

how it ends, we'll know soon
live your life and focus on the cue cards
its all been planned, every move.
until the final curtain call of your life.

there is a wildness in this world
unchecked and unknown
a quantity not measured
a sadness all of our own.

the leaves whisper and float
rustling red and yellow
the skies brighten
just never see what is around you

how much have you missed
and haven't known
by living without any happiness
always missing--never knowing

i too am that way
thinking about the past
too long wandering in the emotion
caught in the web of my own sorrow.

never too much
or too little
to be caught in the yesterday
look to the morning
to erase the past.

Why are we here?
To live and die, exist and become dust?
Is there more to life than what we see
An existence of being and disappearance.

Do we mean anything?
Do we love and care
Or hate and slander.
Callous and lonely.

Is this life one of worry about how we look?
How we dress and how we act
What we watch and what we do.
What is cool and what isn't.

There is more to this life.
Than presidential debates that appear to be reality shows
And Facebook posts that nobody cares about.
Someone has all of the answers.
Maybe some day we will too.

Reflection /Mirror

This time you know its true
A lessening of the time
Life is short and fearful
My days are short, darkness and sunshine.

This morning you came to me.
I saw your face in an early morning dream
You faded away when the sun faded into the corner of my room
If only it were true.

The sunrise
Another day to live without your love in my life
Only emptiness and joyless days
You went away and never returned.

My life without you.
Is without worth and meaning.
If only I would not have sent you away
And left you there in the twilight.
