A world of light
Where roses burn, soft petals lie scattered, Exhibiting the bane of worldly weight In their clinging to colours, damned to fade.
For a second there, I thought love mattered, However, I see this miserly state As proof of its expendable design.
Once purpose has been served, I am afraid What love established, life will see battered, Until all there's left is a ruined slate.
However, that rose was never betrayed; She never was claimed in ‘forever mine’; She never did ‘want’, let alone too much.
She withers with grace, for she does not pine A world of light, vivified by your touch.

All my grief says the same thing— this isn't how it's supposed to be. And the world laughs, holds my hope by my throat, says: but this is how it is.

How wonderful is it that at some point humans discovered we don't have to shelter from the rain, but can dance in it

Unconsidered
I knew you were it; From the second I saw you I knew you were it; Something short-circuited And at the same time Everything fell into place. I knew I would love you forever, But I loved you like a kid, I did; I just never considered One of us could stand to Ever lose a love like this; I never once considered I could lose you. I never once considered you would leave, Until you did.

Don’t let anyone try to tame the wild in you. Don’t let anyone take that away from you. It’s what makes you beautiful.
A very old piece from 2017 that I redid.

“ I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death”

She asked me what my favorite color was.
I looked at her. “Brown” I said.
She smiled. “Brown is warm, like coffee”
Yes. Brown is warm. But not like coffee. Like your skin every time I caress it. Like your eyes every time I meet them. Like your hair every time you’ve spent the afternoon under the sun. Brown is warm, like you.
But I couldn’t say it.
“yes, like coffee.”
