Touch

Even this morning
you’re still flickering
in the back of my mind
like a candle burning low
smoking up the room
you always had that affect
on everything you touched.

Sleepy

In a moment of despair
these words came to me
like a breeze on caressing my neck
the sky speaking to me in ways you never could
a loss of control
waking me from a slumber
whispering secrets of tomorrow
that only we once knew
when we were together.

Waves

You never asked me to stay
we both knew this road
turned to gravel ahead
neither one of us was ready
for the twisting
turning towards the dark sky
foraging and trying
following a stagnant path
leading away from the sea
and you didn’t ask me to stay
but I would never have said yes.

Fields

I watch your lips as you speak
a dance of words
escaping your mouth
beating like your heart
capturing the fireflies
on a summer night
as we chase each other
through the field
while staring at the stars
you say
stay
and like the constant tide
swirling in my veins
we retreat to the sea.

Whirlpool

My eyes found yours
and I was found
this vast ocean
shrunk
into the palm of my hand
whirlpools
trapping the moment
dragging me
into the colorful depths
as I watched you swirl
with the currents
down to the sea floor
tracing my lips with each breath
and the stormy sea
landed in the palm of your hand.

The Night

Quiet and unafraid
you spoke secrets to the sky.
The dreams of a sailor,
floating on a sea of clouds
as far as the horizon would allow.
Promises loomed
as the darkness begged you to listen
and for once
you believed the night.

Take Me Back

Take me back
to immersion and passion’s kiss
a feeling I have been longing
wondering and waiting
for you to realize it too.
You notice the sky
and nature’s cherry lips
never believing
the touch of my hand
losing my mind
is the only way to love
and I carry on
until the day you realize
you have always been mine.

Passion's Kiss

It is here that I sit
immersed in passion’s kiss
a feeling I have been longing
for as long as I have lived
wondering and waiting
for you to realize it too
all this while, the aching
has been for you.
But you notice the sky
and the crimson sand
never believing
the touch of my hand
and I carry on
up and up towards the sky
until the day you realize
you have always been mine.
