Essential

I feel your absence so keenly today Like half of my heart is missing. It could never be safer than it is with you but, The emptiness aches to my very bones at the moment.  I long to press my cheek to your chest And fall into serenity at the sound of your heartbeat beneath my ear. To feel your breath fill your body And your exhales brush lightly across my hair. To wrap my arms around your waist And feel your strength beneath my fingertips.  Knowing I will feel the tension ebb from your body As we are reconnected once again. If ever asked where I would most love to live... My reply would always be "in my love's arms"
There is no destination in the universe more essential to me.

The feel of your presence  Slides along my skin, Like a well-loved quilt Enveloping me in comfort. The smoke-blue of your eyes Hold every dream I have ever wished for,  And some I've yet to even fathom.  Your laughter leaving me willing To empty a library of books, So that I might hear it's beloved sound Echoing around me. Your smile enough to make me Forever rest my pen,  So that I might have more time To be beguiled by it. Your kiss like the cusp Of a thunderstorm, An intoxicating mix of Ferocity and serenity, Which, unfailingly,  Ensnares me. Your words like a novel  I am unable to put down, Each page drawing me  Ever deeper than the last. The strength of your body Like a Celt warrior of old, I would gladly bow to my fate, If chosen to be yours. The interlacing of our bodies, A symphony. Limbs bowing and resting To the sounds of alto and bass, Until peaking upon a magnificent crescendo. Arms banding around me, Holding me close. A moment's sudden realization...
You are my home.

Lypophrenia

The lack of your presence  is a gaping void in my chest.  Overwhelming my heart today more than most. I cannot seem to turn loose of it.  Even my darkness seeks you... Adores you and is restless in your absence  My soul constantly seeking yours, so often, I fear it may forget its natural host.  Your nearness is the only thing  that will calm my mind,  Any other but your touch  drives me deranged inside.  I am without my anchor tonight
And I am bereft.

Insecurity crushes my chest.
My eyes dampen with unshed tears.
For so many, feelings fade
if not within eyesight.
Will it be easier to not see the love
inevitably disperse?
Will my heart just shatter in place
when met with the first void glance?
The thought of your blue eyes vacant of the fire that consumes me
steals my breath.
I fear I may freeze to my core without it.
Never again being the cause of your enchanting smile...
my mind can barely process it.
Sadly, my love is irrevocable.
My soul has chosen and,
you are its mate.
Loving you will be my eternity.
I always knew you were more
than I ever deserved to receive,
but, I had hoped life could overlook
stealing my happiness just this once.

Fractured Soul

Watching the light fade from your eyes is like slowly dying,  Especially knowing you don't realize I can see it happening  And wondering if you have even felt it fading, yet. Already missing the way your face softens when you look at me.  That smile that steals my breath will be next to exit.  Oh, how I will miss those stolen touches and secret glances.  I don't think my heart will ever cease racing next to you... Though, now, an edge of pain will accompany it, too.  Knowing, late at night, that I am now alone in my dreams  You will no longer linger with me there... Our adventures have ended.  My nights now will merely circle every beautiful memory we've shared... Until I awake brushing away tears.  Knowing, from the beginning, I never deserved your love, Is cold solace for my aching heart. Melancholia steals over me as I sadly tuck my soul away Into the box where it should have stayed. I wonder if I should just mail it to you,
Since it will always be yours to keep.

Celtic Dreams

You appear in the middle of my night
Smile beckoning and eyes twinkling.
A happy calmness pervades me,
As it always does near you.
I wonder upon the adventure
You have planned for us this time.
Just the sound of your voice and
the soft bass of your laughter
would content me for hours.
I watch your excitement
dancing through your eyes
as you endeavor to decide.
Finally, amazing smile breaking free,
You reach for my hand.
Laughing, I hold on as you tug me along...
feeling a bit like Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn.
I love how you've set me free once again.

Moment volé (Stolen Moment)

Moment volé (Stolen Moment)

Calmness settles upon me
amongst the tendrils of the fog.
The cool moisture beads atop my skin,
cleansing the soul within.
A lone tree stands sentinel
to guard my instance of vulnerability.
A soft greyness cocoons me
from a constantly shifting world scant inches away.
Vague forms bustle by
as I languish in my nature-made cloak of invisibility.
Quietly enjoying the reprieve
from my socially-acceptable persona.
I turn the mask slowly
and watch its bright, gold reflection dancing in the air.
Knowing, inside, my soul
mirrors the soft, gentle grey of the fog.
Reprieve at an end,
I don my gilded mask and reemerge into the world once again.
