Understanding

Happy birthday, Shakespeare!

Originally posted on Cytherean Dreams:

Your understanding washes over me
in warm waves, comforting and uplifting
my soul. How do you do it? For you see
exactly what I need, and your lilting
voice wraps around my worries and my fears
to lull me into drowsy contentment.
No need to cast anchor, to fret over tears,
I can float in your kindness, for it’s meant
the world to me, to know you that you love
no matter what act I do, or my path.
You, steadfast ever, whilst I float above
your warmth filling me, floating in this bath.
You are my godsend, my treasure, my gem.
I found you at last, amidst all of them.

There’s no place like home.

The air smells musty and familiar
as I walk through the doors and
into myself.
I didn’t know I would find
me here.
But once found, cannot be left behind.
This girl, this woman,
who gazes upward and feels blessed
finding home.

Sunday Morning

The aftermath of revelry
calm and serene and
the darkness of your brown skin
contrasting with bright aqua
of our now shared sheets
so beautiful, I catch my breath
afraid somehow that
if I wake you, gently
touching the side of your cheek
the moment will burst,
pop like an opalescent bubble,
and all I want
is to savor it. So
I don’t wake you.
I let you sleep under my caress
and breathe in the deep joy
of a sleepy Sunday morning.

On the Verge

On the verge of a breakthrough.
On the verge of tears.
On the verge of screaming.
On the verge of collapse.
On the verge of bursting.
On the verge of exploding.
On the verge of imploding.
On the verge of rebirth.
On the verge of metamorphosis.
On the verge of…
On the verge of…

Something.

I wish I knew.

Distance

Musings on long-distance love…

Originally posted on Cytherean Dreams:

Love is an invisible cord that nourishes
no matter the distance.
Connects and feeds and supports life
through dimensions of time and space
scanning thousands of miles
in an instant. Love is my soul
calling out to yours
and hearing an answer
deep in my heart and mind
that you love me too
and feel
the connection between us.

Sunshine (A Prayer)

Wherever I am, I walk in Your sun.
Your love everywhere will bathe me in light.
Above, You will warm me, free me, the One
Who ignites the fire in my precious sight.
Your love is not fleeting, nor will it fade
In my dark hours when You feel far from me.
Your sun still dazzles, never to know shade,
Warming forever this eternity.
You know I feel you, deep love in my heart,
I feel Your sunshine giving me strength.
It does not matter if I play my part.
To You will I always return at length.
And everyday, Your warmth on my skin
Reminds me how close You always have been.

Sunshine

Wherever you are, you walk in the sun.
My love from afar will bathe you in light.
Above, I will warm you, free you, my One
Who ignites the fire in my precious sight.
This love is not fleeting, nor will it fade
In the long dark time when you’re far from me.
My sun still dazzles, never to know shade,
Warming us both in this eternity.
I know you feel me, deep love in your heart,
You feel my sunshine imbuing your strength.
It does not matter if close or apart.
We cannot measure our love in mere length.
I long for the day, your warmth on my skin
Reminds me how close you always have been.
