TIME TRAVEL BY SEAN BIDD AND ME (POETRY DUET #3 W/ AUDIO)

http://hastywords.wordpress.com/2013/04/14/help-me-celebrate/

The above is Hasty’s request for her one year anniversary in blogging and I was more than happy to meet the challenge

This third duet was done with a sort of Word Smith http://seanbidd.com/2013/03/26/beyond-the-dry-grass/ 

I have loved you for over two thousand years

If I could find you in a million faces

Your place

A speak-easy

They’re a million faces of you…

I can smell only traces of you

Residue and relics lost

I’m caught between worlds searching to find silk just as soft

Behold the tares of 18th Century gods

Held in high regard

Amongst our tethered Frey

Searching for the most qualified rhetorician

To convince the gods of something tangible today

 

Once again

Here

Caught

Caught in our slow dance

Oh I love that way

The way your words

They climb through the seasons

And give them meaning

Till here we are

With the wild sea roses

As they rise up, upon each wave of sand

Can you tell me, the direction we’re headed?

Spirit, lover, soul mate

We are headed towards ripples of sand storms

Slaying beast that come between our worlds that were torn

Through old lovers and street huggers

We are headed towards cowboys and Indians

And will move rummage any kin to them

We are headed towards Transylvania

Where we were first bitten

Socrates, Plato and Aristotle will gather the town hall

They will convince them all of why we should be together

We are headed towards Jack the Ripper, Shakespeare and Vladimir

Mozart, Beethoven and acapellas with compose a song for us

You must purchase for me a Mona Lisa or a Moana

For when the gods brings us together

It seems like centuries till the day

And not even I will tire of this search

This unquenchable thirst

So I search this bruised place leaving not one crevice untraced

I time travel

Skimming the surface

Searching

For

You

 

Whisper it loud into the storm’s wild wind

Let the gods give Romeo and Juliet their chance to start all over again

To take us flying above with your songs

Where each atmosphere

Sweats thick with your thoughts

If I could find you in a million faces

Your place

A speak-easy

They’re a million faces of you

I have loved you for over two thousand years 

And the gods have denied our request

And now

 We roam this bruised place

Obsessed

Chasing

Only traces

Of you

And so

 We time travel

      1. It was a fun collaboration, and the interaction fast too, no time for sleep. Plus, always love a good adventure. All that time travel, it was a top ride!

        LoL..3.2 seconds, in how far (that’s how far in all dimensions)? The universe is a big place out there, it’s a ginormous place in fact. What have you seen? 🙂

      2. The demensions in my mind anyway, but I am not normal (;

        I have seen hearts being colored in red or children being told stories before they go to bed.

        I have seen pastures filled with butterflies and teachers teaching children how to make tie-dye.

        I have seen how excited my grandma was when she brought my first bra.

        I have seen leaves changing colors in the fall and couples holding hands while shopping in the mall.

        I have seen angels being sent down to lend a hand or birds playing footsies in the sand

        Excerpt from the language of love, this is the best I could come up with. https://soundcloud.com/mentalnotes-1/the-lsungusge-og-love-poetry
        It’s way to early to tell you what I have really seen, you’d probably stop following me,,,lol

      3. Who’s normal these days, everyone’s their own unique (:
        I’ve seen a few of those too… Yeah, way too early for the real, but I’d never stop following the words and poetic lines that you choose to share lol

  1. You are on a roll aren’t you…I love it!!!! Duets are so addicting aren’t they and a great way to connect with people! This one is once again fabulous!!!!

      1. Still. It was great. I think Jen’s was the longest I’ve done, and that was tough for me. I had to rearange the punctuation and create punctuation so it would easier to sigt read.
        You are awesome. 🙂

  2. Bravo! to you and Sean, Latoya! This is just marvelous. I read the poem on Sean’s site and then he was kind enough to point me toward your audio version which is awesome too. What a lovely tribute to Hast’s first blogging anniversary. Blessings and love, Alia
