week twenty-one

this heart of mine belongs to him 
the man whose love i cherish
a precious gift has been given me
to be know, truly know...
and loved because of, not in spite of that. 
in his eyes i see all ~ 
past, present, future
and know my memories are safe with him. 
we have given ourselves to each other
an indescribable sense of belinging
my hand fits perfectly in his
my head rests perfectly on his shoulder
my love fits perfectly in his heart. 
kind words and sweet laughter
are the fuel of our lfie together. 
this man is my greatest friend. 
in this time we've spent together i have learned 
that love is not something you look for 
love is something you become.

week twenty

you have known all parts of me
you have seen the glimmer in my eyes
you have loved the worst and praised the best
you have grown and cried and laughed along with me
you have chastised my instability
you have scowled at my darkness
you have served your purpose as i serve mine
you have longed for more
you have ached for abandon
you have always known
you have always cared
for you are me ~ my reflection.

week nineteen

loneliness drips off me like beads of sweat
there is a haunting behind these eyes
please do not criticize 
the reasons for my silence. 
if only i could share the depths of my soul
if only i knew them myself
if only that was enough. 
with warm arms i hug myself
desperate for other arms 
for other statements of affection...
i see flickers, but doubt their intent.
in the heat of this day 
i am not enough;
tomorrow perchance.

week eighteen

glimmer, shine and glisten
devote, delve and listen
endure, indulge, enjoy
caress, bless, do not destroy
hold tightly 
tread lightly 
and believe in the beauty that is now.
