Grace of Salvation
By Jack Cloudt
Like two fireflies
Performing a ballroom dance
Beneath the pearly white grin
Of the crescent moon above
That wears its yellow sequin suit,
Each sparkle inviting yet far,
But jealous that it may never shine as bright
As two fireflies in love.
Like the clicking and clacking,
The ticking and tacking,
And micking and macking
Of a keyboard
As it attempts to translate
Feelings to words
(It never works).
A colony of penguins
Looks all the same,
Black and white
And nothing else,
Except for the one penguin
He thinks of each day,
He sees not as the same as the other dull ones,
But as a rainbow of vibrant perfection
That only she owns,
For nothing else could ever compete with her in his eyes.
Like a bow and an arrow,
The other is needed,
A bow with no arrow
Has nothing to hold on to,
And an arrow with no bow
Has nothing to guide it
Past the obstacles and hit the bull’s teasing eye.
Like a boy who had nothing
Before a girl came along
And, for some reason the boy will never understand,
Settled for a crow over a dove.
Like two young hearts
Intertwined into one,
You are the person I want and I need,
