eyes

lying here without you makes no sense
and my eyes refuse to close

cold

she carefully covered him in kisses
so there wouldn't be any spaces for the cold to creep in

12.13.2007

fat pants

she was relieved she had kept some of the larger sizes for those days her thighs
seemed to forget who was in charge

wishes

there he was hanging wishes as delicate as snowflakes
on the end of every branch

keeping pace

steadily he kept pace behind her
knowing that one day she would stop running
and realize he'd been here all along

12.11.2007

steady

his firm spirit kept her anchored and secure
though the world was always tearing at her frame

12.08.2007

apricot moon

the apricot moon hung low in the sky
waiting patiently for her to join him
and she found herself at home

12.06.2007

branches

you are a breath of fresh air
he whispered into the night
and the wind wound her way through his branches
and lay there til morning

12.05.2007

still

yellow moon, grey sky,
whisps of clouds drift by
late night, early morn
as still as the hour i was born

11.28.2007

distance

the stars fell in small kisses upon her lips
and suddenly he didn't seem so far away

11.27.2007

leaves

she stepped lightly over small puddles
where the drizzling rain gathered
the Sweet scent of crushed leaves
brightening the otherwise dark night

blue eyes

and for the rest of her life,
she tirelessly sailed his ocean blue eyes.

11.26.2007

seasoned

flavored with life,
peppered with adventure
a dash of experience, mixed with pleasure
never dull, never bland
spicy, saucy, hot!

11.16.2007

whispering

he whispered into the dark for the first time,
the hundredth time that night
i love you
and she to him the words returned
i love you, i love you, i love you!

11.15.2007

negatives

photo’s shadows, reason revealed
the truth while you weren’t looking
yet never concealed

11.14.2007

relentless

still
stiff
air
stifled without breath
so the straining in my chest
as this day refuses to end

11.13.2007

kind words

He was always dropping kind words like autumn’s leaf litter
yet he never seemed to run out of nice things to say

11.09.2007

giggles

the sound of their laughter rolled off the roof
A refreshing rain in a world that had seen too much gray

11.07.2007

words on a page

the words on the page before her blurred
as the gentle breeze carried her smile
to softer, sweeter places
she had not yet forgotten
