I Am Love

I am love.

Capable and true.

Arms wrap tightly,

Lips brush gently,

Words caress surely.

 

I am heartache.

Justified and brash.

Arms flail wildly,

Lips utter cruelly,

Words sting deeply.

 

I am loneliness.

Weary and contrite.

Arms invite desperately,

Lips quiver ruefully,

Words seek clemency.

 

I am imperfection.

Emotive and fretful.

Arms clutch intensely,

Lips bitten restlessly,

Words swirl silently.

 

I am vulnerability.

Sensitive and aching.

Arms expose defencelessly,

Lips part prayerfully,

Words disappear meaningfully.

 

I am hope.

Aspirant and purposeful.

Arms reach boundlessly,

Lips mouth encouragingly,

Words empower gracefully.

 

I am self-awareness.

Accountable and mindful.

Arms stretch welcomingly,

Lips soften reassuringly,

Words accept unconditionally.

 

I am love.

Gentle and understanding.

Arms embrace supportively,

Lips forgive instantly,

Words share empathetically.

Mindtrap

 

Box of lies

I live inside

Built of years

Of propaganda

And slander.

 

Razor edges

Slash my heart

Shred my soul

Scratch my eyes –

I’m deaf.

 

Weak perimeters –

Your love spills

Into my mindrap

Shedding light

On truth.♥

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.

Threshold of Years

Your delicate heart
Thumps stalwartly
The tempo of our gait;
Hiking abreast
We traverse the hills
Of the state of love.

Your radiant smile,
Illuminates brightly
The journey of our love;
Whispering gently,
You reveal the path
That leads us home.

Your sentient wisdom
Discerns assuredly
Which doors to open;
Uplifting me softly,
You carry me over
The threshold of years.
