The Starkness Of Night, The Brilliance Of The Dawn

Soon I’ll be awake
burning like a forest in the night

where has the joy in my heart gone
when is tomorrow no longer a thorn
why are there moments when I feel so alone
how can I survive on my own?

yet there is a sunrise at my door

in her eyes
in her arms

I am warm
I am known

I am loved
I am free



You Lift Me Up

Day by day you lighten my step
and strengthen my heart in every way.

Moment by moment your vivacious soul heals my scars,
your magical touch on display.

When the stars shine in the sky,
when I see that look in your eyes,
the universe blooms like the dawn,
our cosmic path a joy to be on.

Whenever I hear your voice,
you lift me up.

Whenever I touch your skin,
you lift me up.

And should I stumble again,
you’ll lift me up.

Nothing can compare
to the beauty of your stare.

Nowhere in existence can outshine
your radiant presence in my mind.

Our love is unconditional,
without limits,
and so sublime.


Epiphany Is The Sound Our Hearts Make, Even In The Dark


every day another way
to reveal how dreams are madein the sun or in the shade
there is always love to make

in this time how we escape
under stars that we have named

wind blows us away
amongst the clouds we embrace

fate swirling majestically in our eyes
forever bound by the bliss of surprise

and this is the greatest day
of my life… again

Every moment that we share
rearranges our universe

as we melt into each other’s arms
life becomes a symphony
raining down from the



It Is Only On The Doorstep Of Introspection That We Find Our True Selves

Sifting mindlessly through
the emotional wreckage of her heart,
the girl with the stark, haunted eyes,
turns her soul’s cannon loose,
from its desiccated mooring.

She fires volley
after volley
into the obsidian night sky,
the fear of betrayal
dancing like water
dropped from a great height.

In time the waking dream subsides,
her glasses come off as she rubs
her tired eyes, bound for
the dresser drawer, they make
a noise not dissimilar to the
clunk-clank of her neglected heart as it yanks
at the thick chains that
surround its murky crimson epicenter.

As We Walk In Stride Up The Steps Of Our Palace Of Joy, We Honor The Way Each Step Was Crafted From The Bricks Of Suffering That Once Littered Our Past

There was a dream of you
poetry carved from a boy of blue
and in this monumental brew
a sculpture of the chance to start anew

but all the words in the universe
could never elucidate the sparkle in my soul
that you’ve ignited with the synchronicity of your heart

Though I don’t yet know
every precious contour of your gorgeous face

starshine erupted from our reborn cores
illuminating every aspect of the landscape of our minds
shimmering like the primordial sea of stars

200 million years of lonely darkness washed away
infinite realms of possibility brought to life

supernovae seeding the future of You and I


Sarah, Springtime Is A Melody In The Key Of You, Fluttering Like a Butterfly In The Sun

You are my morning light,

blue eyes blooming over the edges

of every horizon.


Your silhouette of raucous perfection

slips eagerly over my heart,

healing the scars of the past

with the heavenly lightning bolts of the present.


This spirit of ultimate regeneration

resides in the precious caress of your voice

as you sing songs of love

against the backdrop of a glittering sky.


This buoyancy of heart

fulfills the prophecy of my soul

as the laughter on your face

blends so sweetly with the rhythms of my mind.


There is nothing more

that you could ever do

because your love is the greatest gift,

bestowed by the purity of your yearning hands,

fueled by the furnace of our incendiary eyes.


I give you all that I am.

I kiss you until the stars drop from the sky.

I wander freely across the lovescape of your mind.


I whisper the secrets of the universe

into the soft spots of your body.


Naked in love, we are transported into a life

that cannot be contained in a single heart.

But together we make the stars twinkle

and smile down from above.


This is eternal,

this is our destiny,

and every day is a blessing,

your lips smashed against mine,

your body shivering with hunger and satisfaction.


The parade of our loving eyes

elucidates the darkness of night,

the boundaries of space-time surpassed

by the synchronicity of our souls.


And I love you.  And I love you.

And I love you.  And I love you…


Underneath it all
I have nothing to fear
because you are not here

This is not a love song
this is just a broken heart
bleeding on a keyboard

There are many ways
the pain of life can get you down

There are a thousand moments
to crush you into dust

And no matter how you live
no one can take the crown
of thorns that dig into your skin
and cover this battleground
