WRITTEN FOR YOU

 

I wandered,

and I paused

 

Every stop there was another you

 

I chased the unknown

layered with hazes of enticing hues

 

I closed my eyes

to remember your touch

Your tickle, your smile

Your gentle stroke, 

it must be love

 

I kept moving in circles

Caught but not anxious

So full, yet so emptied

Sweet peace, such deep affection

 

Falling, oh falling

deeper than I imagined

I have no control 

over the gravity on my heart

 

Deciding to let loose

go to the places

carried by your blues

 

With no walls and no roof

No place to hide under

No shelter but you

 

Like my dreams I never remember

Maybe a fantasy,

abandoned but true

 

Growing our faith,

so deeply anchored

Your smile, so tasteful

Blossoms in me,

oh how it lingers

 

If I do, and I must, let go all that I trust

let it be all of me

but not you, not us.
