2020-11-28 – Touched by Sound

touching sound
swallows its
feeling,

i’ve felt it, yet i know
nothing and
it’s..

thrilling to see that
light you’ve
not

yet felt stirring
within
you

++++

we’re etched
eternal..

in core’s crusted clay
with all of life’s
grand and
gory

truths played out
on our inner
stage.

2020-10-4 – Reach for Sky

if the night bore vocal
chords, of course
they’d be
yours,

in times you’re long
gone but not
so far,

for i crash land
distant same
star,

just look up, i’ll see
yours, don’t
blush..

you’ll see
mine,

all’s fine if we just
reach for sky
and..

treasure what
we find.

2020-10-02 – Cozy Toaster

some loves bake
deep and
slow,

others spark right
off the tips of
lighters,

shame my feathers don’t
catch fire like they
used to,

not sure they’ll keep me
thawed through the
first month of
winter,

guess we’ll have to
cuddle closer,

++++

til these starchy sheets feel
more like the slices in
your toaster.

2020-09-15 – Blue Comet

no taste’s ever wasted
in embraces full
and true.

with moon’s pale face
my mirror, i catch
each star in
your eyes,

bright but foggy with
fever that halo
hangs on
you,

so pure is love’s light,
and each breath
tastes of
life,

++++

as blue comet blazes
its tail home
to you.

*poem written with my girlfriend, who prefers
to remain anonymous. She dislikes my
writing “that” much! 😉
jk.. i think
.
