Never thought it was a reward

Gingerly he stepped forward
Steps he took with measured ease
Never thought it was a reward
Doing adult things as they please

Growing up was not easy
Youngsters craved independence
Rules were broken readily
Elders considered a nuisance

Two hearts locked in place exquisitely beautiful

Image: Two Hearts Locked In Place (here)

What of it?
Reflecting on good fortune snug on a pedestal
When life was of prophetic indications pulsating
Looking to the sky clouds bidding as palatable
A tussle to recollect images of a pretty plaything

What of sweet recollections?
Gracious imaginations with mutual feelings of awe
Boy and girl whispering sweet nothings manifold
Insisting on a sacrifice towards a future together
Warm memories nostalgic in  part but put on hold

What of uncanny acquiesce?
The winter of their life together devoid of fears
Meant for each other a relationship so blissful
What kept alive little anecdotes of yesteryears
Two hearts locked in place exquisitely beautiful

there is a lull in a man's wants

the 12 given words:
lull, swirlingreflectiongrateful, lips 
tastes certain, give table, fried, chicken  stews,

there is a lull in a man's wants
amidst swirling waters racing under the bridge
on reflection grateful that his lips are sealed
where tastes begin to sweeten
but an uncanny reluctance to push the door open
puts a damper on his initiative

perhaps a certain twist in reality is in order
given the choice right on the table
a fried chicken or pumpkin stews
something savory or something sweet

a decisive take is asked for
a tune for a burning feel
a man's desire needs fulfillment
only a loving wife understands
a straying heart is caught dead in its tracks

he plopped down hard with such delight

Upon Arriving Home (here)

the three onomatopoeia words are:
plop howl munch 

it had been such a hard day's night
trudging in slowly through the door
he plopped down hard with such delight
onto the padded chair minus the roar

most times it accompanied the walk
when arriving home usually beaming
very much unlike a fallen rose stalk
worn out then pending sweet dreams

howls of laughter earlier were the mood
munching chomp, chomp at the goodies
the live-wire at the party now subdued
the fast lane could end in such drudgeries

staring into the barrel of a gun is set to threaten

it may not even be flowing smoothly
nor in the violent nature of a personality
the tread of time is so ruthless that it 
tramples even the kings under its feet

why the necessity to nurse it with care
when it tramples all opposition who dare
is it not all too glaring in the midday sun
to offer none of an excuse to meekly run?

hey! is it not all too obvious seeing the act
of abandoning a cause trussed in a sack?
to accept responsibility is none of a bother
but to win accolades even at risks of murder?

not something to be tolerated in life's blessings
even if clearly caught in the cross-hair fuming
staring into the barrel of a gun is set to threaten
impacting as innocently as a kind of a challenge
