there’s a haze in the air


when the sun is high


and bright


held with care


between your fingers


 


we’re on our backs


in beds of wildflowers,


and night comes slowly


in blues, blacks


and warmth still lingers.


 


your body is made of stars


that I’d like to wish upon


and i have finally forgone


the winters before you


your eyes are moonlight


your mouth is sunlight


my hands are right


to adore you.


 


you are the clouded heat,


the perfumed wind


through treetops


soft and sweet,


like a secret kiss.


 


our place is not the day


or the night


it is the in-between air


where we lay


and love is just


 


this.

sometimes in the morning i laugh at the way

the light of the sun grips so violently to the buildings

so eager to spread its light and dispense of all the

darkness.

and i laugh when night comes slowly and quietly

like a whisper spread across the sky.

it devours the city into its inky, opened mouth,

but is still filled with light,

of the sky, and of the streets.

so i’ll be the night, if you are the morning

and i’ll let your light linger

within me.

in night-time splendor

i want to kiss you,

and in the sleepy morning,

and in the shining

daylight.

but in this closeness,

in the shadows that bend

around our limbs

and the secrets we share

between our eyes,

this linger of touch

presses itself into my heart

and i cannot bring myself

to bear it.

i miss you,

even here.

happy love day, hitrecord

i've been thinking & unthinking &

rethinking & then drinking
& then doing it all over again
i've been thinking & unthinking &
rethinking and more drinking
& i'm certainly as uncertain as can be!
yes i'm certainly uncertain that
i'm certainly certain
sounds like true love to me!
i've been flying & sinking
from rethinking the unthinking
& my heart's all a-flurried again
& now i'm swooning & i'm soaring
& so surely adoring
just as smitten as smitten can be!
yes i'm certainly certain that
i'm so certainly...

Quietly,

wondering eyes gaze upward

to the beauty,

to the horror,

to everything we’ve ever imagined,

and all that

we couldn’t.

Patiently we open

our hearts, our hands

to infinity, and pull back

the clouds to get a glimpse

of what it means

to be magnificent.

And your soul is turning

over, under, in disarray

coming out through

your mouth

and into mine

like snowflakes

on the tip of my tongue.

We bear in our minds

the fullness of life

the depth, the colour

your smile is the grace,

my feet are the passion,

carrying forth

upward to every peak,

to every seashore

I remember brightly

the way you floated to me,and we collided,all moonbeam-filled eyes,and star-kiss'd skin.

It was raining,

you were humming a lullaby.

Mouths overflowing with

gold-tinged whispers,I sank into eachrise, each fallof your limbs.

Sunrise blended into

sunset, while your heartbeat in musical accompanimentwith mine.

If only ever I could look to you,

hear your voice in tall-tales,and in sing-song afternoon duets.

If only ever I could color you

as you colored me;in non-existant hues,glowing, always

in love.

You fell upon me with perfumed summer lips and wild-enchanted hair.Even the trees moved, bent their stubborn branches, if only for a moment, to imitate the angelic angles of your limbs.

(i loved you carefully, quietly)

You saw the dreaming blue sky and wanted the sea. You cupped in your hands oceanic waters and your fingers yearned for the spark of the stars.

(i kept your heart in my pockets)

It was you as the sun set, buried inside of rainbow-filled flowerbeds, who wanted nothing more than to remain in love (carefully) and to live...

I didn’t hate you when we broke up (called it quits, ended things, decided to see other people, wanted to take a break, whatever you’ve been calling it -- we broke apart). I couldn’t bear to do so. You and I spent nearly six years together -- in arguments, in twisted sheets, in awkward family gatherings, in unforgettable little moments. We made each other happy, through most of it, and that was enough. Until it wasn’t anymore.

When we met, our lives collided and burst, unlike anything that anyone had experienced...

Dance boldly butslowly;love everything with your

entire heart.

Let yourself fall apart

(or maybe just fall)once in a while.

Keep your socks mis-matched,

and dive into adventuresbigger and more gloriousthan your body can contain.Cherish “before your time”as fervently as the present.

Tint your fingertips with

rainbowsto keep your hands painty.Transform your life into words --you’ll never let a storygo untold.Spread the Flowand save the GOD DAMN world(somehow).

There are never mistakes

without lessons,love without growth,or lifewithout aching,...

I run my fingers through

your tangles of hair;

you whisper stories

into my hands.

“There once were

two souls,

in two ribcages,

in two hearts,

in two bodies.

They were not always

together,

but they were always

inseparable.

She would dream up adventures

that they took while they slept,

and whilst awake.

He would saunter through

banks of powdery snow,

she drifted in pools

of crystal-clear water,

and they always met

on top

of sand dunes.

She ambled through the

deepest gardens,

He traipsed around

violent city streets,

and they always met

in the parking lot.

He is lost

There are things that I

can’t stand to be aroundfor too longwithout wanting to cry;things that mostcan shove aside,can pass over asvirtually worthless.Like that certain shade of blue,front row theatre seats,a swingset in a park,a book of poetry,banana-flavored tobacco.And there are other thingsI hide from the world,but mostly that I hidefrom myself.Three autumn-scented letters,chronicling the improvementof your handwriting,how many different waysyou can say“I’m here for you”how many different ways I could ignore you saying“I’m not who...

Through our entire lifespaneverything reminded me of youand everything felt perfect,because it was youand it was me,and how could it be any lessthan absolutely perfect?

You took your time,

you got to know me,you memorized the sadness in my eyeswhen I just couldn't take it,when I just couldn't do it alone,and you cradled me in the hallways in front of everyone,in front of no one,it never mattered.You wore my hand-made love around your wrist,and gave me your half-brokenheart to mend,because no one else could,because you couldn't trust...
