My Match

Feel the chills
Little
Every hair
Rising for you
Simple lift
Spiritual gift

Up my arms
Travel
You
Up the back
Of my neck
And down
My legs

Intensity I
Met my match
And
It was too much
To receive
In my ear
And tongue
At the roof
Of my mouth
Incomplete chords

Innocence of memory
And absence of me
Innocence of memory
And absence of me
How could it be?

I met my match
And it was
Too much
To receive

You Left

You left your glow on me
Yesterday
Now every time I see
Myself in the mirror
I turnaround to you
All over me

You left your smile on me
I can’t seem to get away
From this impression
On my face
It’s just your magic touch
I guess

You left your love with me
Because I feel two
Heartbeats beating
In my chest
Somehow you
Did this
To me

You left your warm embrace
Weighing on my shoulders
On my back
In every single particle
I feel you
Holding me
Even though you’re
Not here

You left your spell on me
And I am conjuring
The moment we can
Do it all again
Because it’s clear to me
It’s entirely your fault
I feel so good

You left me this way

Close Your Eyes

When you close your eyes
Do you see me
Can you dream me floating by?
Across the screen
Inside your mind
Can you feel me
Can you reach behind
Your eyes
Do you receive me?
I am there
In every pulse
Every synapse
Contemplating you
Pondering the love you share
The touch you bare
I want you

To know I close my eyes
And see you
Floating by so warmly
Experiencing this
Like out of body
Levitation in the
Heartfelt
Waiting room
Of my mind
Traveling down
In silk vibrations
To the center of my core
Where you are
Welcome
There you are

Does it scare you
That we can be this close
Share a fervent space
This way?
Like a flower
To the earth
Like a bird
To the sky
Like a mountain
Against the horizon
I feel my best self
In your eyes

You’re a red flag
Of surprise
To the bounty of a life

Cathartic rhythm
Rising and falling
Scales and lines
Of what pure beauty
Longs to hold
When I see you
Close your eyes

Goodnight

Surrender

The ultimate surrender
Is in your arms
My lover my defender
Soothe me with the
Riddle of your
Touch
You set off my alarms
Every place

My body is your maze

Anywhere your hands
Can take you
Anywhere your breath
Will land
I am your moment
For the taking
Elated to oblige

Watch my chest
Rise up and down
Your heart beat
Feels sublime
As every
Generous word
Slips out
And carries
From your lips
No cynicism
Just your
Fingers on
My skin

What Is What

I put the pieces together
Wrong sometimes
Deceived by my own love
Confused by my own senses
As free as I want to be
But too free for some
At least it seems
But not for all
The right
Fireworks happen
A spark a snap and
The moment carries
To spend time with
Those who want to have fun
To let go on many levels
Of course we’ll come back
To where we were
What’s so scary?
Why is it when we lose control
That fear finds a way in
Shouldn’t we be
Wandering through our thoughts
To find ourselves and one another
What’s wrong with dancing
What’s wrong with fear
What’s wrong with being
Called out for who we
Are
Who are you
Have you asked yourself?
Are you near
Do you ask yourself
Questions
Like this?
Is this
Questionable behavior
I mean what am I asking?
Am I asking too much
Why am I asking?
Why does it feel like
I’m asking too much
We’re all wounded
Deep down
Let the lips loose
Let the tongue waggle
Let the soul out
Let the eyes dazzle
What is what
Where are we
What is here
When we choose
To be here now
Where are we
Where are
You now

Should

I should give you up
But I don’t want to
Can you blame me?

It would be cheaper if I do
Let go of something I don’t need
Will you forgive me?

I wake up and you’re there
Before bed I’m aware of you
Would you miss me?

I wonder if you’ll realize
That I’m gone

I see you in every color
It’s almost been a year
Since we took off

I know I’ll miss you
A slave to your delight
Morning noon and night
Is it all right
If I replace you?

We have been through this all before
But not in the same way
This is different now
So wait…

I guess it’s not the same

Creating space here
Doesn’t mean that we should end
Entirely

But what we could find out
Is you are better off without

Me

Here comes a break for you and I
I won’t be angry if you cry
Please don’t be mad
We are connected
Even with space

Between us
You will see

Now is the time to pass the torch
To someone you will find
More worthy

Someone who can appreciate
The recreation you provide
Deep down inside
Decisions made
With a new breath

And you will rest
In hands of others
Playful means

The Happy Couple

Go away from the pain but you can’t
Because it’s living inside and
All around every part of you
Trying to be loved deeply
Trying to be considered
Met with a feeling
That barely
Scratches

The surface of who we are as a couple
Relies on our ability to touch one
Another with our words and
When the words you speak
Leave me out of our
Equation because
You’re so busy
Making us
Believe

The truth is something that it’s not
Something you’ve made up for
Us to argue about and I don’t
Have anything left to fight
With I just want to be
Capable of enjoying
My day and I
Can’t even
Do that

With you asking me to answer questions
About yourself that you already know
The answers to, what is this?
Your attempt to make me
Lie to you so you don’t
Have to know the truth
Because the truth
Would set us free
But only if you
Accept what
It means
