about this poem…
The essence of love, an un-definable entity, a moisture on our lips with a breath of wind, breezes emotions and questions which displace us. It is that in-between space, that gap, the separation within union, which causes us to ponder and tremble. This sense of true love, an intermittent signal wrapped in angels cuddly arms, is one in which frightens, in the fragileness as well as boldness of all relationships. This is the “why”, the why in the necessity to hear the reassurance in our heart… three extraordinary words.

For Better or Worse

For I live this life,
I think you knew,
between chocolate and empty.
Wheat plains filled with quenching dew.

Smile, you do know the ripest rose,
impossible to feign.
The arrowed heart that perpetual
homeless or no name.

Why cadence as a bluebird,
perched eyes on watered boats,
you and I, waves reflection,
dangle endlessly behind tongues of notes.

I love you.
