Angel Incarnate

 

Dear angel incarnate,

 

Your omnipresent love

Is the wind at my back

And the sun on my cheeks.

 

Your unfailing devotion

Lifts me above adversity

And fills me with courage.

 

Your fierce protection

Shelters me from harm

And fills me with confidence.

 

Your tireless energy

Provides fuel for my tank

And exhilarates my soul.

 

Your beautiful spirit

Foretells a life of tenderness

And adoration untold.

 

Your delicate heart

Opens in vulnerability…

….and is safe in my embrace.

Only Tomorrows

Hold me to your chest,

Erode away yesterdays

With the winds of change.

 

Breathe life in my ears,

Exchanged for sighs of distress

That used to burden.

 

On sturdy shoulders

You carry away the pain;

The wisdom survives.

 

In your acceptance

Only our love matters now;

Only tomorrows.

Happy Birthday, sweetheart.

Pressed in Shadows

Press into me in the shadows,
Present and everywhere.
Knit yourself with me,
Limb in limb.

I inhale you into me,
Closer still, imprinting.
Leaving your mark on my spirit,
Compelling my body to cry out.

Rake your fingers into my flesh
To indicate your craving.
Pleasure and pain,
In perfect balance.

I taste us on my tongue;
You’ll stay with me there.
Let’s just dwell here,
Shape the past in shadows.

Better than Myself

(Note: this is the first “song” I have ever written. There is no music for it, just that the process and structure is more song-like and the styling a bit different than I normally write with – such is the reality of momentary inspiration)

You walked into my life, unexpected,
And made my insides feel like dancing.
Your eyes were like looking in a mirror;
Felt like running from my reflection.

How can you know me?
Where have you been?
How did you find me?
I found you within.

Sometimes you know me better than myself.
See my fears and hear my excuses.
It scares me the way you know what I need;
Know the lessons I haven’t learned yet.

How can you know me?
Where have you been?
How did you find me?
I found you within.

A moment in time so blissful today,
The future is but a great mystery.
Whatever may come, I’m thankful for us,
This connection so few get to share.

How can you know me?
Where have you been?
How did you find me?
I found you within.
