Silhouettes Of Vignettes

Silhouettes of vignettes
Selected carefully,
As one who chooses a favorite pet!
Remembering a darkened time,
That had no light to spare.
Remembering those who chose to dance,
Upon nerves deserving
Someone's thoughtful chance...
To take a broken heart,
And mend it with romance.

Silhouettes of Vignettes,
Pieced and placed together...
To avoid moments one regrets!
And viewed from shadows,
One hopes a masquerade charades!
Forcing a picture to complete what does not fit...
Yet the delivery can not hide,
The gestures that rise...
Giving clues of what's felt,
As one tries to deny...
A truth concealed inside!

Silhouettes of Vignettes,
Perfected to reflect...
A completeness one desires,
With emotions no one detects!
And when this moment passes...
To satisfy what one now accepts.
A divided heart once torn apart,
Will discover under spotlight...
The arrival of true happiness,
One deserving gets!


Inspired by and Dedicated To:
My dear friend and 'genius'
Michael Bradford!

'Thank you Michael! You are truly
an amazingly gifted individual!
I am honored to know you! '
