Inside the silence

the words
fall
one by one
from your lips
still drunk
from the lust
of the night
feeling the darkness
as we lay
in silence
the sound
of the clock
fills our being
tick
tock
every second
falling further
our dreams
we whispered
to the universe
sharing the secrets
that we hide
from others
until the sun
wakes up the rest
of the world
between the sighs
the inhales
and exhales
we always
find our way
back to each other

I am

his fingers
gently dance
across my heart
stroking
all the chords
that make up
my entirety
for he has
fallen in love
with ALL of me
the brokenness
of a past
I regret
the scars
that I can’t hide
and the beauty
that I strive
to show each day
he loves
the whole
of my being
because
when all pieced
delicately together
it’s beautiful to him
perfectly imperfect
I am 

Her words

her words
beautiful like a rose
in shades of pink
stroke the pages
of his heart
oh so slowly
they touch a part
of him
he keeps hidden
behind a mask
her words
sweet like a dream
in hues of blue
they feel alive
inside his soul
dancing
like a summers breeze
upon the darkness
of the night
her words
finding
all his layers
and still choosing
to love him
regardless
of what the world says

Element(s)

I found you
in the darkness 
of the night
as the clock ticks
in the quietness
of my mind
where my thoughts 
are the very loudest
I found you
in the depths 
of our words
each letter knowing
every syllable falling
finding comfort
in the sweet silence 
between the periods
catching our breath
at the commas
and holding on
through the parentheses
I found you
in the ink
of my pen
that scatters across
this blank canvas
I found you
in the element(s)
that trickle through my veins
and into my heart

Soulmate

I find you
inside another dimension
a vast space
outside of this physical world
where the concept of time
just doesn’t exist
where we connect
beyond the touch
beyond the mind
beyond the depths
of our surface
we connect in this sphere
that sits inside of emptiness
through the very souls
of our existence
the language we speak
has no voice
no shapes or letters
it has no rhyme or reason
there are no words
it only has a rhythm
a magnetic force of waves
that carry us to one another
through the universe
where we are connected
nothing could ever change that
we are bonded
forever, you and I

In her bones

As she
turned off
the old lamp
she caught
a glimpse
of her tired eyes
staring back
from the mirror
her life flashes
before her eyes
lifes regrets
fill her heart
her once
strong words
no longer
carry their weight
as she
closes her eyes
for another long
empty night
the final
cold winter
sets deep within
her bones
