Do you feel that electric jolt
Between your heart & mine
Kerri Dec 2018
Sometimes I wonder
if the smile I gave you
is long gone
or do you keep it in your pocket and put it on from time to time
in the darkness of the night
Kerri Oct 2018
It’s as if the bare branches
stroke my hair
with the comfort of Autumn
Each time
the soft, shushing wind
whispers through the trees.
Beneath a milky moon
I find peace
Knowing that
The heat between
me and Summer
Has fizzled out.
Kerri Aug 2018
I want you to be
My E V E R Y T H I N G
But if I can’t have that,
Will you at least
Be my escape
Every now and then?
Kerri Jun 2018
I bury my heaving *****
Beneath a carnival of flowers
Until the hope
The fear
Kerri Oct 2017
I'll Stand
on my tiptoes  
Of a mountain
To steal the moon
Make the world go dark
To light up your eyes

I'll clutch the
cold, soft
In my fist
And sprinkle it
Your bare feet
For you
To walk on

I'll pluck the wind
And lock it up
In a mason jar
And pour you
A glass
For the moments
That take your breath away

And if any of these shall ever
Run out,
I will LOVE you back to life
And truth.
Kerri Jul 2017
Engulfed in fear
She stood before me
Shedding off
The ragged gown
Of her childhood
That weighed her down
For 20 years

Embracing the thrill
She flew into me
Her naked scars
and brave truths
That somehow
Made her shine
More beautifully.

Reaching the
Deepest place
That we had ever been,
Our tiptoes grazing
The blazing fire
That simultaneously
Sparked our
Bodies and our minds.

A universal understanding
That we've finally
Made it here together,
Hearts dripping
hot metal,
Synchronized souls
No longer lost in between
The swings of
The pendulum.
