Lover

I love you with the
greatest of my mysteries,
With the most menial nonsense
I’ll try to tell you why.

Together

I wait for each
breath you give,
Your pulse in rhythm
to mine,
My nerves through
your skin,
Our muscles stretch
us together.

Rapids

In a dream
of a rowboat,
I have one oar
and you the other,
Some unison
forward and back
looking at each other
and not ahead.

Not Yet

Heart feeding heart
with thought chants,
Poking at each other with
passion and plain love,
The flame, the mood and
the refrain.

Emotions

Touched by chants sublime
With holy words imbued
She did feel beloved
And gratefully replied
Through a crafted rhyme…

Can’t

Can’t ignore a gigantic bloom
of feeling for you,
Can’t distract with
responsible life continued,
Can’t take the nature out of need.

Distance

to hold you near,
words to replace what arms would do,
the gaze of eyes,
instead warm emotion blinks,
your lips to mine,
our hearts grow close unchapped
