CHARISSE




Before you came I loved her,
Like I love you now.
Her love filled my heart 
To overflowing, 
I was bursting with happiness. 

And then came you...
Sweet as wild honey,
Soft as silk.

Like a miracle 
My heart exploded again with unbound love
what utter fortune had befall me?

You are still a little human
But you are you, 
already.
When you fancy something, 
You are fierce, adamant.
High spirited like your sister.
Bright and ernest
Fiery and irrepressible. 

I love all that you are
All that you will become
Always and forever
And absolute.

Music For My Soul




Music tugs at my heart, 
It brakes it.
Brings tears to my eyes
It pierces my soul. 
I fall to my knees
An idol worshiper.  
I regrat
forgetting 
I repent
My ignorance.
With music
I'm ecstatic
I feel alive 
I want to 
Run recklessly 
To drown 
In the waives 
In the torrent  
Of emotions that befall me.

Infatuation





Your smile was the sun
picking through the clouds
after rain.
Your shimmering eyes 
were the droplets 
on the rainbow.
Your hair was gold
your voice soft,
your parted lips
your wet smile,
the rising heat from your chest
setting fire to my tinderbox of a heart.

ON PAUSE FOR SPRING





Gloom is sitting on my window sill
desolation covers the shelves like dust
books are waiting to be read
paint brushes dry
welting flowers
emptiness

Spring is so far away 
the wind chimes sing incessantly 
Weeping gray skies 
barren trees
Can't bear this melancholy 
abyss
