Love is Stunning
Love is stunning, and for so long it fell apart,
Her passions and my cravings had remained unknown
I had a talent for reserving the wrong heart
Blinded by desire and hunger, but now I know….
Light and Love encompass all, through the muted night—
the stars and moon find the exuberance to shine
The moon is a sculpture, its flaws so ivory bright,
It pirouettes with the midnight shadows entwined.
My thoughts eluding sleep beneath a timeworn tree
And I’m naïve to my world as it is closing
Confounded with love there’s an ache where you should be
And I burn like fire, hotter than any glowing
I wake each morning in simplicity and plain
And love starts anew like a dawning horizon
Where the firmament and Gaia meet again
The setting where I distillate both my eyes in
I reach out for you, with the utmost intention,
Knowing each brushstroke of your palm is a novel
If not I will wait, for that which I mention,
because frankly, we are worthy of colossal.
Head over heels, to fall like a building collapsed,
And hope that you would pick up my contemptible shards.
I hungered for love that gasped on pillows when tasked
I hungered for you, like the coals hunger to char—
To light a match from inside the void of my chest,
To boil the lakes of red that pool within my veins
To meet me in the wrath of love with sweet caress,
to worship me so passionately that it strains.
I’ll covet you, like it was torment not to try,
Loving you, as a bellicose hero I’ll play.
I needed someone to care for my butterflies,
Not someone who was busy swatting them away.
In truer love when no meager confrontations slay
I knew it when I felt empty without your smile
That I’d rather argue and fight with you each day
Than lust for another while in their arms beguiled.
There exists this telepathy between our hearts
Where just a simple fleeting look can make me blush
For so long ago I woke up broken; torn apart
Now I ache for you when you go, I miss you so much.
I’m in Love….
