Someone You

You are the fragrance
of my words
on so many days
You are wishes
You are dreams
You are anticipated fears
And rejections
And a Universe of possibilities
If I wished upon you only
Would you grant it
And if you did
Could we birth
That fulfilled wish
In physical reality
Can you consciously choose
Who you twinkle down on
Or would your childhood friends
Songs of caution
Become the choir of your mind
Every day I fall in love
With some new form
Some new function of the Universe
Some new atom of Adam
Do you assume because
All the world is a stage
That I'm just a common player
Do you not see
That this is my religion
This is how I worship
This is my relationship
With any God I can perceive
How could I do any less
Than try to treat
Every man
Every woman
Every wave
Like she is the ocean
I do this in remembrance
Of all of our roots
And I know that you
May find this hard to believe
I have no will
No intent to deceive
Honestly, I feel like I'm learning to walk
Learning to talk
A universal Language
And if I could
If you would
And we had means
I would write these words
Down in our notebook
With you
Add a soundtrack
Always have your back
But this feels a bit
Like a glass lake house
I can see you
You can see me
But we can't seem
To build in spacetime reality
If I could I would love you like breathing
Be that environment in which you thrive
While still loving myself enough
To stay alive if you leave
If your heart moved on
To the next Benedict Cumberbatch
Or the next Harry Styles
Or the next Pharrell
Or the next Drummer
That comes down the block
In some moment where we've grown apart
Where our art became a distraction
From us or we found ourselves
In different years again
I see where I've been
And where I am
You see where you've been
And where you haven't
We perceive each other
Through different lenses
But I wish you could see
That I couldn't be your Noah
And you can't be my Allison
I can't be any other man
You can't be any other woman
You can be you
I can be me
We could learn and grow together
Becoming we

Is that journey your wish
If we could
Make that happen
Could you take that risk
Do you really want all my attention
Could you handle my Oneness
If I told you that
Guys like me appreciate you more
Than guys like them
I'm not saying they can't love one woman well
But they can't love all women well
I'm saying that I could love you
Like none other
But there would always be
My spiritual ecstasy
My Universal love
My need for people
And experiences
That move my pen
Could you love me
And let me love you
Even when life has monotonous moments
Without punchlines
When we just peel potatoes
And sip our tea
Your Avatar
With my Avatar
Your heart
With my heart
Your mind
With my mind
Realizing together
That the inner
And the outer
Are really one thing
And that the most
We can really do for each other
Is cultivate each other's bliss
If I narrowed my focus
Would you be burned by
The flames of my attentiveness
Or thrive and bloom
With that Sanctuary
With plenty of room
To spread your wings
And fly
Rest on my arms at night
Unless there comes a day
When you no longer like
Or you believe that I
Have broken some rule
Written by men
If you go
Would you come back again
I'd take that chance 
With knowledge
Of all that could go wrong
And all that could go right
Do you really want to
Illustrate the stories I write
Do you have time and interest
Tell me what's true
What if I said
I want my only someone
To be you

The 5 People Who Make Life Heaven

They listen when you need to talk Talk when you need to listen They know your darkness Let you know theirs Without judgement and expectation You can talk to them about how you see things They don't get angry or anxious when you disagree Trust you enough to say what they really think Read tweets and novels Never make you beg or grovel Won't allow it Remind you that you're better than that Lay some of their burden on you Let you behind their wall Feel welcome behind yours You feel each other with heart and mind Even if you don't explain yourself  They get you You get them These are the ones that make life worth living Make you love to be alive Reflect you to you Teach and learn Some days the lead singer Some days the band These are the ones You can count on one hand (c) Ron Kennedy 

Reasonable Words

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
