The Vibes Alive


Sign in to view read count

Hard to admit: this love
Only a dream kept alive
By haunting all the tunes.
Tho the actual impossible ---
To know the texture of your soul ---
Music keeps the vibes alive
Recalling that special glow
Penetrating my very existence:
Those feelings will never go
Listening every evening
Caught in love's flow.

Missing our conversations
Exchanging views
Now wandering thru the poems
My company under the moon
Taking you into my dreams
Nourishment when alone
Enjoying all the vibes
As love haunts the tunes.


Wandering with the currents
Emoted thru certain sounds ---
Piano exploring alternatives
To the hollowness around:
Sax flowing thru the systems,
Emotions resound
Remembering the actual ---
To those passions forever bound
As bass and drum activate
Recall of lost sounds
Still playing in the brain cells
Tho the actual long gone.

Save for those brief moments
Something in return
That allows all these dreams
Real fuel to burn!
Not enuf for any journey ---
Fire crackers flashing
As the sun goes down.

Butbetter than nothing
Hearing music's echoes resound
Conjures up your image:
Love every moment always found
If admitted both were searching
To listen to that ancient song.


In the hollows of the mind
As in a cavern deep below
Quiet echoes of our passions
Thru awe-inspiring tunes still flow.

Listening to that language ---
Instruments of the mind
Conveying pure emotions
In a thousand thousand notes
Structured to describe
Feelings thru sounds.

Expressions I listen to
To fill the vacuum now you're gone:
Food for the brain cells
Now the bodies' language
Lost in the shadows of time
Reflected in lyrical piano
As sax blows the soul home:
The beauty of our passions
The fabric of every song.
