Maps

I see the maps in your eyes-

 

They lead me across continents of grace…

 

The lands of your soul, rich in beauty-

 

Then over mountains of earthborn innocence,

Flowing, uninhibited, like lava,

And then cooling to form the brilliant stones

 

Big-

 

Almond-

 

Defying all glory in explanation,

They soak me in deep, brown love.

You’ve Got The Love

I looked up in the stars tonight

And saw you glinting there.

How is it

That someone can be

So perfect?

(I’m learning

That there is such a beauty

In variation.)

It’s like

You leave the door to your heart wide open

And I can just come in

Lay down

And nestle there.

Your gaze alone

Brings warmth to tired bones.

You’re the kind of person

That I could hug

Ad infinitum

Never needing more

For the rest of my life.

Oh, I could die a happy man.
