(For my Sunshine)
No matter the distance
our hands are nestled in the middle
perched on a bridge of understanding and tolerance.
Do the secrets of our past really matter
when showered in the light of what glows
every time we dream together?
I know you.
I have witnessed the nature of your heart
through words, breath
and the slight whisper of your eyes
as they watch me when you think I am unaware.
How could I be so captivated
that my wits take their leave with each hello?
My gaze entangles with the dark of your lashes,
and I forget the fear of drowning in another love story.
Through glances I know your faults.
Through kisses I understand your desire.
You held me once
while we talked beneath a shadowing rain.
We have drank glasses of each other
while huddled under a dawn sky,
yeilding to the giddiness that passion brings.
Two nude wills
heart bathed beneath their creation of light.
We will love through chaos,
and be steadfast through all matters of storms.
Two hearts will build the foundation for one point of light
a duet done with passion
a work of art surpassing price.
Our devotion is concrete.
and I will aspire to love you in the future
with as much faith as I do now.
You could hurt me with your bare hands. You could hurt me using the sharp edge of what you say. JEWEL
