Quiet

come, lie next to me, Love,
let me nestle into your tenderness

wrap your strong arms around me,
protect me from the cold

allow me to close my eyes,
to sync to beating of your heart

I want to breathe you in,
and never let you go

you, my Love,
will always feel like quiet

Written in the Stars

he scribbled his intentions
across her willing flesh,
with fingertips and glistening
streaks of wetness,
leaving pools of hope and lust
in her clearly seeing eyes

he penned chapter after chapter
over her every curve and thew,
with warm whispers
fevered grips and moans,
and commands that pushed her toward
leaving her speechless, no need to speak

he illustrated their story
in the spaces that were once
between them

he bound their story
with a boundless spine
made of their blood and sweat

their story is written in the stars

-able

I am able
but
my heart is still breakable

I am stable
but
sometimes a three-legged table

I am affable
but
with small talk, I disable

I am durable
but
not always endurable

I am capable
but
not always cape-able

I am fall-able
no buts

 

Earthshaking

when my exhausted back is aching
and my weathered hands are shaking,
when my tired eyes need waking
and my cluttered mind needs a’raking

there you are, tugging at frayed edges
that need staking,
helping pick up the jagged pieces
that are crumbling and breaking

never turning away
from love’s work that’s painstaking,
investing in the us
that’s forever in the making

we’ve found holy land
in this sacred giving and taking,
and everyday I’m blown away –
because my love for you is earthshaking
