Paradise

Nobody told me how to navigate this kind of love
We will be explorers, pioneers in a wild frontier
We can stake our claim–
everything new and nervous and blushing
Something out of the books I’ve read.
How could it be any different when it’s love?
Only–we wouldn’t be exchanging rings in front of an altar
But solemn vows we would whisper to each other,
Within the walls of our paradise

Like a Moth to a Flame

Thrust into the limelight with my words,
I didn’t ask for that
but it gave me you.
No denying it drew us to each other–
like a moth to a flame
And here’s the truth:
No matter what happens,
I can only be grateful
for it has shown me how much
I am capable of loving
not just anyone,
but someone worth my poetry.

Bar None

I took a chance,
and you replied

I flipped,
a switch turned on

I’m a light,
and everything’s clear
I’m a radio,
and our song is playing

Oh hello
where have you been all along?

I’ve tapped a well of hidden desires
and words are gushing forth
I won’t go where the flow takes me,
I’ll do better–
Be the flow and let the magic happen

Trust in the Universe again
Worth the wait for you and me

Because our love makes me want to
reach for the stars.

The night is the sea and our love is a ship,
I am not afraid of the darkness
Because you are with me and I am with you, always.
Fear is an illusion, separation a necessity
For the growth of souls trying to remember–
What we came back here for,
Every lesson we’re here to learn
To bring us a step closer to union within
and each other.
Nothing has ever been more real except–
This cord that binds us,
And we would die with the truth that we are each other’s home.

You are with me, and I am with you
Always.
