Think On Our Love

Think on our love not as wild
For I have no wish to out run
The reach of your fingertips

Think on our love not as right
For there is no one way I could hold you
Naked beneath a starless sky

Think on our love not as young
For I feel faint of breath
Having loved you my entire life

Think on our love not as long
For there is no time I wouldn’t give
To see you dream peacefully atop my grave

Think on our love not as love
But a knot between two souls
Which tightens upon the sight of your face

Seattle Coffee
What I’d like to think you left me for

Seattle Seafood
What you actually left me for

To the Lovers

I buried my grasp on reality
Beneath the webbing of your tangled hair
For fear of letting it go while holding you near

Your breath fills my lungs
I go up in flames
Rising toward the flaring heavens

I am lost in the realm of your love
Still, your burdens weigh you down

Lose yourself and come find me
