I can’t explain myself,
not with words you want to hear
But I can’t reduce my self
To a man who holds nothing dear
It is a decision of character
Rather than of circumstance
I will love her better
And it has nothing to do with romance
I’d rather live filled with pains
Than fill my coming death with regret
When given these options
I’ll take the one you won’t soon forget
And I sure won’t forget it either
On this rough road I chose to travel
I close the door behind me as I enter
Eyes front, yelling back, “Turn the deadbolt!”

This year
Holiday Cheer
Isn’t knocking at my door
As I gaze deep into a mirror
I realize how alone I am here
And I find myself longing for more

My dear
I fear
That we belong together
As this haze, a holiday smear
Easily forgotten because no one cares
Drags on without you, and leaves me sore.

This Christmas
My wishlist
Is simply
You and me
By the fireplace

Staying warm
In your arms
Under a blanket
Content with
The sweetness
Of companionship

Bells that jingle
And old Chris Kringle
Eating chocolate chips
Red nosed reindeer
And holding loved ones near
A holiday to never forget

Just a mistletoe apart
Heart to heart
A romantic embraceĀ 
I don’t want any presents
All I want is your presence
On December twenty fifth

The way she writes her y’s,
Her laugh and huge goofy smile,
The way tears appear in her eyes
Things I haven’t thought of for a while

But nonetheless reasons to adore her
And I will adore her, like it’s going out of style
And will continue to forever
Every inch of every new mile.

I hope people call her lucky
When she walks down the aisle
Because she deserves the best man I can be
And a romance that’s absolutely wild

She’s beautiful, the brightest gem
And it’s so much deeper than the Nile
Farther than will be seen by most men
But then again, I’ve yet to see it all myself.

Willing that it be broken
I’ll put my heart out there,
Or if you prefer, held dear
I’ll be your lighthouse on a pier
When you think I’ve all but disappeared
I will shine bright and sway your heart from it’s fear
I’ll not abandon my post at this dock
Come rain, snow, or shotgun slug
I’m not going to bail out on us
Even when the going gets rough
Which it most assuredly will
But still, my choice is mine to steel
my heart isn’t one you can steal
It’s given of my own appeal
And neither of us should reel
In our mind on what the other feels
At consequences of love’s burial
Should that be the hand we deal
I’m being realistic and that’s the deal
No two ways about it, though painful it’s real.

Fireflies in the night sky
The world drifts away
Blindsided by beautiful eyes
And I’ve got to say

You shook me,
Absolutely shocking
My heart can’t catch it’s pace
You caught me
Beauty unceasing
From sole to soul to face

Ripples in the water
Disrupting reflections
Of the stars as they stare
I have a confession

You stole me,
Wholly captivating
My heart can’t catch it’s pace
You swallow me in
Beauty unceasing
From sole to soul to face

Breeze hiding in the leaves
Sneaking glimpses at you
Embarrassed, tree to tree
What a wonderful view

You face me,
You’re radiating
My heart can’t catch it’s pace
You never see
Beauty unceasing
From sole to soul to face

But I do.

Before us lies an era of passion
The very fires of life burning bright
With no signs of letting up for a moment
And hearts, like our hands intertwined for the night
Dreams of hopes and goals growing close
Ever closer as in return we forsake our rights
If only for that one breath
One simple second that you’re really mine
And these hearts of ours share common ground
Understanding for the first time, granting flight
God, don’t let this gravity pull us down
We scream as we dream and hold each other tight
A grand blaze for art, for beauty, for love
An inferno for truth, for the journey, & a reason for life
No one stand in the way or hold us back,
Or burn, I swear, will your soul tonight
Yes! Harsh, offensive, full of meaning and emotion
But truer than the farthest foresight
Real passion never caters to opinions
Idan Zeal, era of passion, my delight.

__________________________________________________

Idan means “Era” and Zeal is obvious. It’s a name, and a cool one I think. So I wrote a poem about it, not sure myself what exactly I’m trying to paint as a word picture or who is speaking or where it’s coming from (Parents speaking and turning to their child at the end, or a poem spoken to one’s beloved)… But most definitely capturing the meaning of the name. I read this over like 20 times after I wrote it, still feeling passionate about it.
