distance

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

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.

seasoned

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

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!

negatives

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

relentless

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

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

giggles

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

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
