Him: She looked different, I hadn’t seen her face this bright in a really long time. In that moment she was the moon, the star, a luminous soul that stood before my eyes. She was like confetti, leaving sparkles where she stepped. It wasn’t like the happiness she plastered on her face or the smile that made dimples appear on the ends of her lips. This was different. I could feel the energy. Her cheeks swallowed her eyes whole and those hidden teeth behind her lips were exposed. It was just everything about her, how her voice was powerful and high-pitched just like a youngster. The way her pupils dilated and showed all her excitement. The way her soul radiated excitement and joy. It was everything about her, the way she moved, the way she spoke, the way she laughed. Happiness made her feel like she could do anything. Happiness was more than just beautiful on her. It was luminous and powerful.
Her: This happiness felt ineffable. It was more than just a star lighting up in the dark, it was more than the darkness fading away. It wasn’t the happiness that is supposed to be picture perfect or the commercially perfect of having pearly white teeth. It was the one that my soul roar and bursting away from the confinement. It was the happiness that made adrenaline rush through my veins and neurons spark every cell of mine. It was the happiness that made me not care about what others thought, whether I was too much or over-excited. I was happy, I was more than happy after a very long time. It didn’t matter to me. I felt fierce. I felt like a child. I felt everything beautiful and powerful. I didn’t want to lose it to others words or to anything in this world. I was going to protect it, guard it and hold on to it. I was going to shine and radiate.

Dawn casts her long line for spring Days linger to catch the angel irises bloom Enveloped by early chirping chitter-chatter Lightly crusted sleep argues for lids to remain closed Black perking wake-me oil makes a strong cups case for compromise A nudge to join the living - On negotiated terms - Somewhere between another dream and lavender bubbles The contract will begin Foggy feet shuffle onto the wheel Spying steps creak tattle-tale floorboards alerting all on the way Pleading thoughtfulness You beg for silence as the Ra room comes into view Brightly checkered yellow-brown mustard window patterns Cut diagonal boxes across maple hardwood Stained glass dots of emerald, violet, and red raspberry Dance on lemon washed walls as they turn and wink for a smile Your morning chair sets at the edge of the warming sun pond inviting you Join them You listen to the ripples of space Your cushioned dock perfectly positioned for a loving embrace You sit And slowly dip legs into the glowing pool Drenched limbs cocoon in the heavy webbing of golden rays Bathing The chickadees celebration is known Immersed Lids succumb to the orange haze The Girl from Ipanema sings Young and lovely You feel wonderful No risk of drowning here... Only in happiness One radiating breath Before the Samba plays again
I wake up smelling of you And it's all I can do Not to slip inside that dream again The one where warm honey flows Between our lips, our hips Pressed together in time Justified in every motion Sweat pools between torsos As a glimmer bounces Surfaces in your cold room The moon is long gone And we radiate as we share stares Intense like the day that has just begun Although my sunshine has been Beside me all along
His voltaic caress courses through me As his fingers bloomed into flowers And his breath a soft breeze on my skin. His voltage electrocuted me My confidence amplified as the words Rolling off his lips Found my ear And charged my veins When it reached my heart. Skin on skin like no other magnetism A breathlesss sensation From such an opulence of love. His true electricity so overwhelmingly paralyzing So overwhelming that my desire Had devoted to hydrating itself Under the waterfall of his affection, His current perilous but phenomenal As it coursed through my liquid love. And no other contingency could execute The inadequacy and animosity I held from myself For the lightning that struck from his heart And radiated from his hands Convinced me otherwise. A galvanism so tremendous Emitting when the crevice of his lips Closed around my neck And up to the roses blossoming from my face Igniting A spark.
