Wake Up With Me

Wipe my lips at the memory
Of a kiss that is nothing
In comparison to you
He who has become one
With the essence of what is
My impermanent discovery
Lungs flutter like
Butterfly wings when I
Breathe you in
Chopping wood
Between the ferns
Surrounding green
To build a hearth
A birch like cabin for your heart
Burning the lime blue
Flames of embers truth
Impressed upon my youth
Wake up with me tomorrow

Finding You

If I found open resilience
A kind of knowing in yourself
Like receiving an image
Like feeling a touch
I think I’d find
One can’t succeed
With a ghost for love
In the wrong room
Wrapping away at the wrong door
As if not everything
Is meant to be embraced

Impenetrable

I reach across myself
Down into your pocket
To find a handful of sparkling light
Impossible to pass through
Are the iron gates that protect
Or enter into my love
For you
Impossible to understand
For many
I reach across myself
In five points of direction
For your protection
Impenetrably
Hermetic in my distance
Like the planet Mars
A pocket full of sparks
Impenetrable is
My love for you
Nothin’s gettin’ through

Back & Forth

I am
Lower cased in fragments of
Position and
Pleasure
But by that which I decree
And that which burns in me
Is better
Back and forth
Twisted simply in my heart
Power
Pauses percentages of life
I won’t pencil in
The things that deserve ink
As I can’t pencil in the past
And erase it’s cause
I
Can operate
So smoothly in your arms
Taking sips of sunlight
Off and on

Come to Me

When words are lost
And your heart cannot find rest
Come to me
When you are weary
And you need a fiery chest
To lean your head against
Soft sure footed
Burdenless
An instrument if love
We’re a piano
A song if love
Were a flock of birds
Your whispers heard
Fallen completely
On the wishes of tomorrow
With tremendous voice
Beneath the sun
Beneath the moon
With everything you need
Come to me
Come to me

Intertwined

Drink from me
Heir of the universe
A black tornado
Of undeniable love
Thirsty a resolution
Of goodwill in the manor
Of your grassy lands
I lay me down
On the battleground
Of your passion
Emerged in your coercion
Even the rocky ground
Is a comfort to my bones
I stretch my arms up
Towards the moon
Like a ghost in love with you
Almost touching
But not quite reaching
Forever speaking
Reeling out for you
In the boundaries
Of our language
I find the silence
Fills the space with
Understanding and the sounds
That lovers make
Only when their lips and legs
Are intertwined

Lagoon

Manifesto for two
Forgotten tears
Behind erased blue
Eyes beneath blonde years
Of so many feelings surfacing through
But I only have one for you
Would you
Like to go swimming tonight
I know a place
With just enough light
Mythical creature
That you are
I am reaching past the moon
Shining over our lagoon
Into a dimension of us
That is changing
As we swoon
Into the darkness

Cornflower Blue

Cornflower blue
It’s not as easy as it used to be
To be loved implicitly
I am
Just like a little boy inside
Who only wants to be loved
Maybe do I make it
Too complicated
Maybe we are
All this way
Cornflower blue
A bachelor’s button
On your suit
Sewing the oats
As a young man in love
Maybe blue tears
Will bring the fire
That for years has been
Crackling in my heart
Unseen parts of us
Awaiting their discovery
I had once a dream
Of this
Blue cornflower
Floating down a stream
A spinning flowerhead
Like a top that swirled into
My mouth and then
I blew it out
It turned about and out into
Thousands more
Floating through the air
Tiny blue sparks
Finding their way
Breathing in pain
Pure suffering and
Blowing out flowers
Where love could be sustained
On the shores of every chest
The tiny sparks of blue did rest

Cornflower blue
It’s not as easy as it used to be
To be loved implicitly
I am
Getting older and
With each passing day
I am
Holding onto the ones
Who love pristinely
Purely wanting to return
The synchronized glowing
Unmistakably true love
Unconditional breakthrough

Cornflower blue
A bachelor’s button
On your suit
Sewing the oats
As a young man in love
Free from the confusion
Strengthened from the
Trepidation of my sweet youth

One Breath

We cannot carry
Darkness and bitterness
In our hearts and be
Completely happy
Backing down
Resting our misunderstandings
On the ground
We bury the shame and guilt
Open the parkways to
Great roads of silk
I promise you no expectations
I promise you many elations
Between the both of us
All our baggage
Can be left at the roadside
Contoured warmth
Of being with you
Even as the sky
Could be our afghan
And the grass
Our hammocked bed
Promises held in seasons
Yet to be uncovered
Another reason
To love more deeply
And succinctly
As true lovers
Sunrise sunset
Sunrise sunset
Capable beauty
Enveloped and yoked
As one shared breath
