Softly through the greys

All your Nows

Hey, you
I hope that this will be fine
In echo of the way you asked;
In memory of the moments spent, when last
We were together outside time
Surprised, and softly through the greys.

Hey, you
I hope you know how much I miss
The scent of you; your laugh; your skin
Redolent with every flavour of our time between
The lines of right and want; us – this
Nestled softly through the greys

 

Hey you,
I hope the nows and nexts won’t stop
But lead to blue-sky times of golden bright
Indulgent lightning-eyed time, tangled night
Kept quiet, treasured under key and lock
Safely, softly through the greys

 

Hey you
I hope your heart will clear your sight
And thus released will be so glad you came
As we forget the room, our words, our names
Love-bitten, ecstasy’s mark made right
Calling, softly through the greys

 

Hey, you
I hope you’ll feel alright
If my wish is for one more fragrant dream
Another chance to make-believe a truth unseen
Blurred lines as shadows fall black-white
Smudging softly through the greys

 

Hey, you
I hope you truly know
Whatever path we follow through or lose
I’ve no regrets; no past I wouldn’t choose
No expectations, just, if you say so:
Loving, softly through the greys.

  5. My age, grey hair, and last stanza line gave this poem a rich meaning. “As we forget the room, our words, our names” and “If my wish is for one more fragrant dream
    Another chance to make-believe a truth unseen” echo in my heart.

      Thank you Beth, I’m glad you enjoyed it so much. I love the versatility of poetry and the way it’s so open to interpretation and subject to the overlay of people’s own experiences. I really like how you translated it – in a way I had never thought of; my mindset whilst writing was entirely stuck in the grey areas between black and white lines! What fun 🙂 Thank you for sharing your take.

  7. […] Prompted by a consider-inducing post about vision boards, I thought for about 13 seconds about what my board would have on it, should I choose to create one. Initially I thought about putting a map of America on it, but that’s too blunt; too black-and-white, and as you well know, I tend to be far better at spending life muddling around, softly through the greys.
