Before the Alarms

Strategically you could in a way
Create a space to be with you
There is nothing more desirable
To me than a lack of
Complications

Me there with you simply

To see what your heart sees
During the day
To wait for you impatiently
Hold me
I am more than one way

You are absolutely right
Every moment for me
Takes a drink from your glass
And if not love at first sight
At last

What you say I need
Is all I want
So far in distance but so close
In the way that you’re discreet

What

Uncertainty can be strong
But loving me is even stronger
And this reflection of your love
Would be enough to create
A gem that has not yet existed
In the world between us

A most coveted ring

Imagine me around you
When you close your eyes at night
Know that dreams have a means to
Build a bridge before the alarms
Wake us up in the morning
Just as the dawn would find me
In your arms

Do

I don’t want to forget
What reminds me
Of hopeless endings
There would be no
Reason to want something more
Something worth defending

I’ll never give up on
The hope that it could be
But I can’t stop
Searching out every possibility
To convince me
Of our truth
You need faith
And in time
I believe it would prove
What it’s looking to see

I must be willing
To risk the chance of losing you
In order to feel
The hope that I could love you
I would love you
And the fact that I could
Is more powerful
Than actually proving that I would

If you only knew
What I wish I could do

Kiss Your Neck

How much how many times
What is the balance
To find work and love
Someone to go home to
Someone to celebrate
Someone touch my lips
Working hard is what for
If there is no one to share it with
Affection calls
I feel it strongly today
Underneath the mystery
Turn me upside down
Find a way for you
To find me too
If I knew where or
How to ask you
Just to stay with you
Hold you
I want to
Kiss your neck

Bitter Bite

Little words
Neutral love
It puts to sleep
What round and rivet
Thumbing
That tic-toc
Like clock
Time of misgiving

Do not let
Your bitter belly
Crawl through
Acid incisors that might
Eat you like a child
Who cries to feel
The umbilical cord
Unreel

Play Me

I have a little secret
I’ve kept deep inside

If I tell you there are words
To teach your mouth how to feel
But only if it opens

If you swing your heart
And follow the truth
If you

I imagined you taller
But your smile was the same

I want more than you are
Ready to give

I could feel you burning across the room
My eyes devoured you in it
With flaming grass
Even the sun is not as hot

Tambourine symbols drum tambourine
In the middle of an orchestra string

Why did you take me?
Am I just your imagination
A photo torn from the wall
A stain of bitter past

You don’t want me to do it
Or don’t you?

I know I can find you
If I take the furthest shore

Wake Up

You affect the essential cord in me
That is afraid to vibrate
Where did you get
Your guest pass
Who let you in?
It doesn’t matter now
It’s already been done

And here you are
Need I ask where am I?

Barely awake
Sitting up sleeping
No reply
No anticipating
Just an absolute waiting
For you to wake up

Noyade

Noyade dans ton amour
Ton yeux faire cette a moi
Je ne peux respirer
Quand je pense à toi
Pasque seulement
Que je ne peux pas être avec toi
Mais car je ne sais si toi veux moi
Ou si tu pourrais

Noyade pour une amour
Lequel peut ne pas exister

Your Greatness

As we move forward
In this new world we
Find ourselves
Settling in new ways
I say

Your beauty is confused
By its ability to be beautiful
In it’s absence it rips away
At your heart
I holler that you will find meaning
And decode what it deserves
Oh, if I could only show you

The place where you crouch
Is hiding from elegance
What a shame it is to doubt
How special your significance
Is to so many
How you fill them
With plenty

I take a step towards
The distance that forces you
To know you
The way I want to show you
Your greatness

Miss You

Then there
This that
Where what
Tsk tat

Emojis wish
That they could show
The hugs and love
We feel
There’s no comparison
To what the real hug
Actually appeals

I miss your face
I miss your love
I miss your warm
Inviting hugs

When will we meet
In fields of barley
Running towards each other
Hardly feels like it’s tomorrow
Why in fact it’s feeling
Farther and farther and farther
Away

I won’t give up
And don’t you either
I’m a tried and true believer
That the day will be here
Sooner than we think
Even though it’s hard to tell
I truly hope
You’re safe and well
See you again
When we can laugh
And looking back we can relent
About the time we spent
As isolated friends

I send a kiss to you

Goodbye Is Hello

Farewells can be so odd
Awkward almost
Unlike burying
These treasures in your heart
Before you go
Can I hand you a torch
To guide you
Tell you a story
To bide you on
Your journey
A ripened pear
Soft on your lips
Warmed once riding in your bag
Wound round your hips
Traveled nourishingly
With you
On your boat
Or saddled to your horse
However you choose to roam
Voyage off or gallop out
There will always be a mattress waiting
A see through curtain draped about
Loosely round the bedposts
I’ll gift the finest kiss goodbye to you
But I am best at my hellos
