O’sweet babe

sister’d to her  

many forms

In each shape

she had found

a new way

to change my world

But held her love

In a shapeless void

walking in the path of enlightenment,
I choose to change;
not for my satisfaction
but for your very smile.

one step at a time.

we do not write poetry
we write mirrors
which are held up
to curious faces
who read
looking for their
own reflections

Another dream about
That’s no surprise

Since you dominate
The world behind
My eyes
I can’t get you out of my head

i think that people take their love for granted
because i—
i’ve spent every waking night
of every aching month
dressed in every shade of you except your touch
i love and lose and hurt
and lust
your memory cannot sustain—your memory
is not enough—
to simply have your presence is the
thing for which i blow—
on candles
angel numbers, dandelions—even snow

and why, i always wonder
do so many that i know
take their love nearby for granted—
that’s one thing i’ll never know
