Poetry

Poetry is for the living,

but death

is what grants it meaning,

making time so fleeting

and love so precious

that even poetry

can scarcely

touch it.

Wordsmith Wednesday: Poem XXII

I’ve been terrified

by things many

but nothing

has shaken me

like

how much

I love you.

Lyrics & Love

You are poetry,

every lyric

more inscrutable,

yet more beautiful,

drawing me deeper

into a reverie

filled

with flowers

and lace.

Written Lovers

Written words

are lovers,

climbing into your heart

and changing

who you’ve

been.

Wordsmith Wednesday: Poem XX

It has

to be

a great

burden

to carry

my heart,

but one

wouldn’t

know it

by the way

you

move,

unladen.

Dust & Shadows

You are

the only one

to love me

hard enough

to stir the dust

from my heart,

to shake

the shadows

from its corners.
