Today I Strolled With Love - Poem by Alexander Downie

My head spins like a pirouetting ballet dancer
My wraith laments under a burden of piquant turmoil
My days are faltered and my sable minutes lay shattered and crushed
My masquerade contorts to whisperings of enraptured passions and trepidation

Questions of life violate my stillness and collide with my duty
Answers fail to find marks or frighten to tell truths
Momentous memories that call rivers of sweat, greed, jealousy and lust
Subtle recalls tormenting the surge that violence’s the veins

Were it ought to be found in a lovers womb
A shuddering graze of unification of tender heart and roused breast
It remembers me to those questions of truth and answers still untold
For yet in puissant cascades of wanting, never to lose hold
