Our Story

 

this is our story,
the tangled tale we weave,
twisted with sweet subtlety
and you tell it,
oh so beautifully

the words spill,
you turning the ordinary
into the divine,
your patient hands
walking through mine
(please, please, tell me more)

I’ve memorized the details,
woven moments of taste and smell
that still linger,
hanging in the air,
carefully placed there
with old photographs
and recent delights,
our poem ongoing,
no where near complete
(but please, tell it again for me)

Bring Me Home

IMG_8456

I sometimes bottle things up,
pretend it’s okay
I leave feelings unclaimed
because I always thought
it was better that way
(they try, but people
don’t always understand)

but, here you are,
offering more,
shouldering the bad day,
the pulse of pain
that lurks deep within
(you make my scarlet heart
want to beat again)
so I breathe you in

people move mountains,
over the sound of a kiss
and soul searching eyes

you bring me home with yours

For Always

IMG_7204

There’s been too much
bittersweet,
our minds chasing problems
instead of holding on to each other

One day,
we’ll have time
to soak up the good,
moments spent loving
these hearts of ours
so concerned with comforting
We’ll watch suns set
and moons rise,
talk about all the good
in this darling life

Until then,
I’ll wish on stars and love songs,
while holding onto trust
and the sweet kiss of faith

And, we’ll burn bright,
you with me,
for always
