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
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,
and so sublime.
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
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.
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
