Valentine’s Day Love

14 Feb

Sometimes it’s best to say it with a poem.

A Shared Paradise

A Shared Paradise

The change was as subtle as the passing of time
Like time, there is nothing more dear
A foreign flavor cautiously touched to the tongue
New tides pushed and pulled two souls near

The coldness of winter had seemed so deep
That the ice, it could never have melted
But this, a clear star, shone in ageless light
A new world was afoot and they felt it

The slow drip, drip, drip rang out over space
A stifling of the blizzard’s icy flame
Shifting shores viewed from their single steady gaze
A shared paradise without a name

And they sensed their eternal protection
Could feel their world deep in their bones
Just as darkness will yield to the morning
Once together, they were never alone

Love you G.

A Former Love Poem

7 Aug

 +++++++++++++++++++++++++

He did profess his love for me
Two sheets were lined and small
Encased within an envelope
Were words the whole world tall

My eyes sat fixed with pleading stare
Upon the purest scroll
Despite the author’s clarity
I could not read the letters whole

They fell apart upon the ground
And there they laid to rest
Like a million ink-drawn pangs of guilt
Exploding from my chest
