Month: July 2016


In this slow silence 
I find peace in the quiet
Solitude at last



A gentle soul
And hazel eyes
Strawberry cream
Honey-thick thighs

I want to kiss you
All forehead and lips
I’ll hold you close tonight
At the sides of your hips

In jaded eyes, cold
This is far too close
I want you with me
I love you the most.


The blue in your eyes, your heartbeat is thick & strong
Blessed be you, like a hymn or a gift or a song
Your hands run veined, leaves spread wide and delicate with green
Your skin runs patterns, black ink and scars cut clean

Your voice is clarity, created with the gift of speech
Deep, yet quiet, shallows of the ocean beneath

Blessed are the living who survive in numbered days
You are among the chosen, spend your life in beautiful ways.
