I honestly have no words left to describe,
and yet describe I must.
It is central core;
it is both early understanding and conflict,
I am almost certain it is essential,
for every breath taken away after mouthing
his name says the same,
he consists of grey gardens and robust heart,
affirms to the saying,
it’s a once in a lifetime experience.
A soft stillness; as scent red berries, pink peppercorn,
bergamot, iris, freesia, lily of the valley,
and rose fill the mind and speak out loud,
he wants romance, a sweeping off from under feet
and whispers that melt,
he craves intensity and connection,
then rest be assured, that’s exactly what he will get,
I am fire and feeling rolled into one,
the perfect metaphor to get him going.
To state plainly; a single life simply isn’t enough,
to love him into blossom
to sift ardor and ache in a sieve and redirect,
I want to lie under shade of long lashes,
read him odes and sonnets
until the sun goes down and fades,
I want to explore sweet contours that beguile
as honey in water,
as cinnamon and chocolate with regard
to bold baking, I will tell him all these things,
look him in the eye and ask him to be mine.
I confess, falling for him, is like deep sea diving;
is both dangerous and safe
is a gutsy endeavor that requires faith,
I must be foolish, but it’s rather beautiful
how mere mention of him
makes me go weak in the knees–
I am of the opinion that it’s necessary to lose
oneself from time
to time, I am an archer with a celestial soul,
I hardly ever tire.
As though on cue, the sky sings a lover’s refrain,
opens up and gently floods the land.
