Otherwise

Of course you are
The exception
I hope you know
Otherwise the twitterpated
Summer has subsided
The obsession is
Not riding
On top of my heart
Cracking the whip
Reigns hooked
At my hips
Beloved
You may be the pearl
Hidden in the middle
Of an Atlantic of people
But your breath
May also be
For someone else
A prelude suspended
In the back of a
Pickup truck
Hands held or not
Three dimensional love
In friendship and
Unknown territories
Of what we could have
Though we never have had
Remembering the
Mountainside we
Have yet to stride
The plants beneath
Our soles
Filling up the blur
Without a strangeness
For mistakes made
In love
No I’m not exactly ready
But the exception
Can always be you
Given to you
Avenging the fall
No panes
Between us
I wouldn’t miss this chance
Our living
In the moment
It’s important
That you note this
If you asked me
I would show up
For you

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

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

Mixed Up

A little mixed up
The highs and lows
The to’s and fro’s
Wishes floating
‘Round in the sky
Pappus flying
All around me
Too easy to
Be sad

Watch the emotions
Meter up and down
Escalator running
Backwards
Soaring in reverse
Making headway
Upside down
Upended smiles
Riding upturned
On a dandelion parachute
Nothing to catch me
From falling
Gliding head over heels
With broken wheels
Eagerly anticipating
The distance

Holding on with everything
Ready to let go
At any given moment
Nothing is absolute
Not even the beat
Of my heart
Even as it repeats
I know
Only love
Is forever

I can see love
In everything
Even as the trees
Breathe
Even as the stars
Deplete
Even as the Earth
Bleeds

Love is still there
Hovering exciting
Withstanding despair
Only love is forever

Open Up

I ask the doors to open up
I pray the gates will hurry up
I ask the powers that solely be
To start the flow of majesty
I ask the doors to open up
I pray the recommended peace
Will soon commence with a quickness
Will soon make good from everything
I ask the doors to open up
I ask three times because I know
I’m not the only one who asks
I know that’s how the story goes
I pray the gates will hurry up
Return the symbol to freehold
Make good the overflowing cup
So mote the doors will open up
So mote the doors will open up
