when I look at you
love is alive in my eyes
it still lives in me
the stature of a tree
deeply rooted in the softness of the ground
intertwined and entangled in nature
driven by an unexplainable instinct
to bear down in a soil damp with rain
roots dug further to earths core
a satisfaction of nature’s fulfillment
an act defined by a drive all know
blossoms bloom and erupt in beauty
and the breeze sweeps through the branches
as a breathless, tired earth breathes
the ground wraps around the tree
clinging in love and protection
two beings now made one in one act to be whole

there’s nothing wrong with ***
you’re my glass slipper
immaculately formed just for me
there’s only one of you
that was refined for only me
and together we fit
we fit just perfectly
I want to know every inch so well
remember every groove of your skin
I want to learn all there is to know
so teach me the ways of your body
let me love you in every single way
I crave your voice in the darkest night
and your gentleness comes running to me
the very second I call out to you
you’ve taught me what safe feels like
and you healed my broken soul
I didn’t know what love was until I met you
your love gives me wings
I fly above the cloudy skies I couldn’t conquer
but now I don’t worry anymore
you’ve given me a lifetime in our short days
and I hope our days feel shorter
as we live our forever together
from now on I promise to scream it loud
scream to the world I love you
I’m not blind to this feeling like I once was
I embrace the love we have
and I always will love you
one month down
forever to go
one kiss felt
millions to come
one moan out
a thousand more to sound
one touch placed
an infinite amount to feel
my eyes shot open and terror gripped my bones
I breathed heavily through my nose, eyes scanning my dark room.
with my chest heaving, my fingers fumbled for my phone;
with a click the brightness illuminated my face
quickly, I found your name but I hesitated,
fearful of disturbing you, bogging you down with my own horror.
but I had no other choice. at that time you were my only source of calm.
the dial rung one, two, three times and when you answered I felt relief.
hearing your voice my breath at last evened,
and my heart slowed.
you comforted me whispering I was okay and you were right there.
the gentleness found in your essence, I relaxed.
your quiet presence held me closely under the bend of tired vocal cords.
without any question you decided to stay with me
and as if I had come and crawled in beside you in your bed,
you planted a kiss on my head and wrapped me in your warm embrace.
soothing me you surfaced the calm within me
and there was no maybe in your commitment to stay.
hushing, quieting, lulling and rocking me to sleep
I felt your protection, I knew I was safe,
and the safety in your arms will never disappear.
