Someone

You wrap your sadness around you

Like a cloak, a protection of sorts

Afraid to look, afraid to see

Afraid to feel what could have beens

And you tighten your hold

Upon your loneliness

Never realizing that someone sees you

Your fears and the scars that you bear

Waiting for you to just let go of it all

So you’ll see that you’re someone to somebody

And that somebody is me

I look into you, your infinite eyes
wondering what mysteries have I yet to uncover
I love you,
you whispered like a lover’s touch
it unmanned me, as your breath touches my skin
breaking down the walls I have erected easily
piece by piece, you tore down my own prison
finding me, chilled to the bone, barely living
I love you,
you said once more, warmth spreading inside me
a seed planted, of hope, of dreams, of the future
We both smiled at the silliness of it all
yet we barely moved from where we stand,
drinking in the beauty that hid inside of us
glowing, emanating, radiating from within
You reached out to me and I did the same,
we closed the gap, and we became one
our roots going deeper into the earth,
as we drank from the wellspring of our love,
growing towards the heavens, we became forever,
we became us, our oneness no longer a thought
but a reality where we thrive in each other’s light

100 Days

A hundred days has come and gone
but I’m still here, and I’m undone
I have watched your shadow recede
from the doorstep, I start to bleed
the longing is strong for I weep
constantly, even when I’m asleep
yearning for the warmth that you give
for this cold heart just learned to live
Now I’m counting the days ’til you are here
for in your arms, I will know no fear

Forgetful

I forget the days when I’m with you
in your smile, the sparkle in your eyes
the world fades, and I’m wrapped up
in every word you utter, the very air you breathe
your soul calling upon mine
hands entwined, our fates crossing intricately
no boundaries, no walls,
just the warmth that spreads from your touch
that glides through this waiting body,
answering your kisses with mine own
the days melt and coalesce into oneness
and so I forget the world
as I sleep, in your arms
tonight…

Stay Awhile

Will you stay awhile and listen to these words
That tumble haltingly from trembling lips?
Will you stay and hear what I have to say?
That in this vast ocean of flowing life
you’re the heart that this one seeks,
though trepidation always forms when eyes
touches yours even in a glance
a split second of happiness before darkness descends
that sudden warmth that tingles from fingertips
as they launch into writing a script meant
from the heart of hearts that yearns
that even for a moment you’ll stop and listen
to the song that someone is singing for you
and understand that you’re not the only one
who is alone in this crowded world

Wanted

you are wanted in these arms
entwined in blissful embrace
the thuds of beating hearts rejoicing
joined in flesh and spirit
night clothes these eyes
though asleep, we’re still connected
moving in between dreams
like lovers strolling hand in hand
oblivious to the world yet aware
of the infinite stars captured and reflected
on eyes where love shines

Talk to Me

talk to me not about your woes
or your constant fears
but of your hidden hopes
you’ve buried deep within

talk to me not about the countless tears
your beautiful eyes have shed
but the number of times a smile
has lit up your beautiful face

talk to me not about your broken dreams
or the burdens that you bear
but of the blessings you’ve received
under God’s given grace

talk to me not about the lies and deceit
or the anger and hate that permeate
but of the joys that flow through your veins
and the love that makes your heart beat

talk to me of the sunshine that kiss your lips
not of the darkness that clouds your day
too many sorrows have laid this heart to waste
one more sad song and it will burst into flames
