How is your hand,
your head, the hole
in the wall
of your heart?
How is the fishtank's glow
or has it gone,
leaving you staring
at an empty space
instead?
But you my love
were never one
to sit and simply gaze,
oh no: you run, and you jump,
you leap with the life
of many,
carrying a notebook
to capture all
the essence of living.

As water flows
from taps or faucets,
depending on learned language,
what scenes do your
beautiful eyes dissolve
through those windows
wiped with Windex?
Is your desk groaning
with the weight
of 28 waiting ideas?
Or is it moaning
in anticipation of
one hundred more it's
yearning to hold?
and, I wonder - how
are your pens feeling?
Impassioned or scared:
reliant on color,
blue pens - of course -
would run themselves dry
just to avoid
an onslaught of passion
while black straight up
would stand and cry:
'Create your life-moments with I!'

Perhaps dust motes
float in the air
with the passage slow
of your breath and
I know the heart
of your home
though I haven't seen it
yet.
Do tell - is your futon
warm against the
invasion of winter's chill?
You step out the door
and into your classic
leaving the spaces empty
yet I linger still,
in the airy surrounds
and imagine you there,
warming the walls
and heart of your home
with the charisma
that touches all.

My water of life
I've found
in the undrinkable
reaches of American soil
and that river flows
from he to me
sustaining and calming
my soul,
for through his life
I see the life of I
and yearn to shadow
his halls.

"Simple?"
Hardly my heart.
Instead, I find the deep ruminations of your mind mirroring mine, (echo,) with the exception of the locale.
But know that if home is where the heart is, I am homeless no more, I reside within your soul.
Thank you again K for bringing a wistful smile to my face in a time of need!

Chris - shockingly, I have to agree (hehe) that my heart is your home, always. Thankyou, for not thinking it simple! The emotions behind it certainly aren't!
Watcher - thankyou dear.

Yeah...simple...there is so much to this, and getting to know Chris I had to chuckle through the first two stanzas...I think he writes in crayons just so he can have 64 colors. Some deep thought behind this, a ver well crafted piece. Simple, indeed, with such a longing behind it. Be blessed you two, you will be together soon.

Well Dix, thanks...this time marked the time when I started to write in the real you know? About concrete things - lots of metaphor and imagery still...but the concrete started slipping in..

hugs you.
