“Unconscious Beauty” were those times,
Unconscious as you are,
The times I was nearest to you
As those when I was far.
Unconsciously yours, unconsciously mine,
Unconsciously were those moments — divine,

Unconsciously I stole,
Time from my time,
Mind from my mind,
Heart from my heart,
Unconscious that my love
will your reason forestall.
Unconscious that rhyme
is absurdly maligned.
& that ends must start
or starts are never enough…

Unconsciously I chose to fall,
Within thine Lucid Love.
Unconsciously it lasted long;
A lifetime in each minute.
& each rhythm within it
was in itself a song.

Unconscious that rhyme,
that clockwork of time
that bound us unbounded.
that found us astounded.
that healed us & killed us.
that filled us & thrilled us.
That left me a Love as eternal
& sufferance —infernal.
Much as I once became,
Much as who I may have been,
Much as who I thought I am.

Unconsciously I chose to fall,
Out of thine Livid Love.
Unconsciously it lasted not;
A lifetime within a minute.
& that passion within it
Deliberately I forgot.

Unconsciously a thousandfold
Into limbo, I left you.
Much as the heart within me beats,
Much as the buildings, the turnings, the streets,
All memory was drenched in gore of defeats,
& Of thine taste that I savor.
& Of each hollow endeavor.
To color our souls.

Unconsciously realizing;
My dreams are collapsing,
Capsizing beyond capsizing.
My pains are relapsing,
Unceasingly seized.
Unto the gates of my reason,
This untimely leave, in an untimely season,
It rendered me conscious;
Unconsciously conscious, Unconsciously aware,
That pain is profuse & Love is as much rare…

Unconsciously awakened;
A Life with much a dream,
A dream, my Life has been.
& as all chance may scheme,
my virtue becomes a sin.
Stricken by its own significance,
unto my emotion,
A bittersweet devotion.

Unconscious was our first “Hello”.
Unconscious is this “Goodbye”.
For, never you’ll see
My feelings in me.
They’re not for denying,
or a chance of self-lying.
My cognizance is too much for thy unconscious.
& As feelings part, & so is my heart.
I remain as near— an augury so clear.
That may I remain unaware — unconscious…

“Unconscious Beauty” were those times,
Unconscious as you are,
The times I was nearest to you
& now as I grow far.
Unconsciously yours, unconsciously mine,
Unconsciously will always be those moments — divine…
