The One That Keeps My World Together

The One That Keeps My World Together
The One That Keeps My World Together

Stones skipped upon the morning pond,
yet no hand released them, intentioned,
as radiations like circles laced to glimmer,
amassed in light across the pond so delicately rendered,
and sky fell upside down, rippled clouds from water,
reflected into the endless blue,
the faded moon into days new order.

Birds scurried through glade and thicket,
while mice flew in soaring sunrise ardor,
swooping the waters for insect feasts,
while birds pecked the earth to greet
a worm or two to order,
as tree roots waved in morning breeze
and leaves buried in earthen sleeves, asunder.

Morning walks in floating ways,
upside down in grassy skies and water caves,
as houses upon their roofs gave further proof
that life in disarray was here before my eyes,
and nothing was the same,
as hearts sank to new lows seeking who to blame,
for this hellish nightmare reign.

Upon the ceiling my bed dishevelled,
I struggled to find the floor, so far away,
instead floated out the window bay,
open by the upside down curtains flapping,
as pots and pans took flight from kitchen,
garden spades and buckets floated by,
in this ridiculous schism.

And as the morning evolved in ambiguity,
and I in calm redress a thought did occur,
for as that thought stirred my conscious mind
I woke to find you by my side,
and I touched your slumbered face, to verify,
’twas you that saved me,
you alone that hold me safe.

Without you my world has no rules,
and upside down is my stomach knotted,
when you are not by my side, allotted to be with me,
out of choice, a decision made,
that you love me, for all my mistakes and faults,
and despite all that, here you are,
the one that keeps my world together.

    Tis nice to have someone to hold you down to Earth when the whole world is upside down in disarray. Are congratulations due to be so loved? Nicely penned and enjoyable verse. Well done dear Tony.
