Self Love

Perspectives on being
In love or lack there of

I’ve been quiet
For so long
Feeling an opening
The pleasure riding
High rising

Forming one body
Too high for most of us
A tenacious song
Even in silence
Redemptive landscape
Into clearer air
Disquieting the story
With a
Perfect trust

There will be other days
Words will be heard
Flourishing like rain
Born in the clouds
Find you where it all began
Your downy voice
Your software
Uploaded

Into the center
Of my heart

Sacred Salt

Don’t try to be good at it
Just be here with me
I need to slip into
Some deep sauce
A little lost
In the vibration
Nothing can make us stumble
Almost doing
Everything we wanted
Two by twos on stilts
A few yards away
Holding ancient forevers
At the bottom of summer
The night tools of Dalí
Dowsing next to me
Painted around the
Echos of your ears
You heard my voice
I crumble with mercy
Beneath your witching rod
Detaching the photograph
Of my memory in what could be
My upper breath
My lower left pocket
Carries an illusion
That the possession of anything
Is possible
Even when I find you
Like some drifting
Shape of red
I discovered on the shore
Sitting still in the
Flashing chips of light
Inhaled slowly as salt
Sacred vespers and
Divine pause
Circle the caravan
Of your heart
Around my waist

One Letter

Where do you go
When you go?
Meet me here at 17:00h
Climb through the fence
Underneath the wall if
You want to see
The seeds I’ve planted
For you
It’s lonely in the tunnel
Without you
Did you ever notice
How close the word lonely
Is to lovely?
One letter away

Could we be one
Letter away
From the possibility
Of holding hands
Resting my leg
On top of yours
Some small touch

Do you have a friend
You like a lot
Or perhaps is there
A spot
For someone like me
One letter away
One tiny kaleidoscopic exchange
Maybe a spoon shape
We could lay in

Anywhere, any way

When the mirrors in the
Pond fall apart
And back together again
I think maybe I could be
That friend
For you

One letter away
From lovely

The Next Day

Can tomorrow
Taste like yesterday
So sweet
Hard to believe it’s
Even possible to be
So connected
Conversation coagulation
Slowly flows between
Beautiful beautiful listening
Feel the drag
When we walk in
Different directions
Away from one another
The cord is strong
The tangle tempting
I’ll braid our feelings
Into the ground
Tendrils of emotion
Woven with dried straw
Left over from the sun
Attached to the earth
This moment
Our breath
My touch
Your release
Unequivocally

Love Noise

I’m no self appointed
Angel of death
But I am dangerous
To you
My love is questionably
Lethal
Eternities of dreamlike love
Stand before you
Graciously transported
Residing in a tone of voice
That resonates your walls
Drenched in the theater
Of your mind
Untrammeled with
Shimmering tendencies
Revealing my deepest sincerities
Encouraging supreme surrenders
A ship in your hearts sea
An embarkation of wishes
Largely breaking the medium
Sights of small things
Shattering all the
Trinkets of the almost utmost
Sentiments subjective to
The unknown
Beckon you
Beyond reality
Each talking bubble
Every love thought
Crystallized in
Cosmic graphics
Even the stars have followed
A launchway for
Sandwiches and blankets
In the grass
Tumbling around
Your foot is slipping
Into my unfailing love
An unerring noise
That rattles the core

Your Finger

I have an aching
That you fulfill
It’s a complicated case
Of finding love in a
Fun house mirror
Impervious appeal
A solid space
Scaffolding we build
Chuck the
Rickety steps aside
Foundations of
Tiers unlike tears
With a lovely
Darkness inviting
Balance on a beam of
Feedback sliding
Can I call you
My love huntsman
As I watch the
Eclipse of your eyes
Thou artful smiles
Thy spherical disguise
In a
Punch pink
Bubblegum rouge
I part the fringe
Of your youth
And all our innocence
Lands on top of
Here where I have learned
Of certain things
Especially that I
Am an expert on
What is good
And nostalgia is
Our food

What if instead of just reading
You actually wrote
On my skin
Like a tattoo
With your finger
Or your heart
Or just a pen

Lemon Tree

I refuse to believe
That your night song
Is not with me

Multifaceted nature
Endlessly ever promising
To strike our
Unconditional wish match
Into a yellow flame made with
Salty flint
Eternal fool
For love

Whatever is this
Lust for lucky

Blanket of stars
Above the furies
Beat the heart
With savory sparks
Lego construction
Piece by piece
Each one rather
Neatly

Build me up
We contrive what we
Decide to collect lemons
For from each our trees
What will we make of these
In our grove

A delicious tonic

I Like You

My truth shies
In the presence of
Your reality
In search of
Courageous lips
Two separate occasions
Colliding into one
Psychology driven

We are a perennial dance
Between the blades of grass

I like you
But not because
I’m alone at night
Not because
Being with you feels alright
I like who you are
Generally
Your qualities
Are warm

Eloquently precise

When you came to me
Before I really knew you
I liked you
But then I grew
To like you more

I keep my eyes
Casting away
So much to blush about
I say
Although it shifts
As things can be
Forever shaken
Depending on the route
We end up taking

I learn more about you
You share your truth
I suppress the lust
Even as you blink

The women of the park
Swoon all around you
I’m not sure if you care
Their intervals are woven
Like the texture in your hair
Maybe rocking
In a chair
Will calm the tide
But I’m still there

I’ll role you up
Like a burrito in a rug
An unannounced hug
Torment your face
With kisses
Leave you breathless
Laughing listless

My intuition says
There’s not much hope
In letting go of my affections
Even as I might tiptoe
Through weeping trees
My best defense
Is to make sure
That I do not
Offend the crows

Curled Up

Handiwork created
Drinking from your cup
Looking high
Peering up
Through your waves
Into your eyes
Curled up
In the crevice of you
It’s good to be
Reminded every morning
Of the warm skies
We walk along in our melody
Of breath

Sprinting across the glint
Of an early sun
A sudden view of you
The sparkle in your eyes
Goodbye is turning over
To kiss your neck
Just one more hour
In our bed

Feelings

Get over it
The lazy crush that hangs on
Where we float past each other
Feelings don’t just melt away
My eyes mesmerized
With you
Framed in a distinct border
You say my eyes are blue

Our precious time
Watch the clock
Along the exact same line
Countless theme
Of every eyelash
Every mole
Every freckle you behold

We are a pair of stone
Elephants attempting
To make the sound
Trunkless
Glancing around
Whatever we dream
Tickles the unseen
Bloom behind
Confused attention spans
Landing in a puddle
Of emotions
That wait to be redeemed

Remains
Claimed by lips that
Mutter or emit
What we can tell
Only of our secrets together
Smudge off the impossible
And our bodies are the temples
Imperishable in a birthless surrender
A house of cards
Glued together
With possibility

Feelings don’t just melt away
And they don’t always meet
Each other the same way
