I have made a quantum leap

now I’m walking on the face of your moon

beneath starlight, tripping the light fantastic

shaking off rose petals and romantic poison

that cling ball and chain to my feet

but we both know with age there is reason

that insecurity always precludes the necessity of friendship

no matter the  turn of the season

One thought on “Terms”

  1. I like it a lot. Solemn and the recognition that it is what it is with the reserve to not get carried too far away “Shaking off the rose petals and romatic poisons that cling ball and chain to my feet”. wow, Well one thing is for certain he’s put something on your mind balanced by maturing which brings with it reason. Very powerful and subtlely elegant.
