Drop by Drop February 2002 - Copyright
Drop by drop,
Let me soak in through your skin
The way the ocean seeps into the sand
Let me drench you
As foaming waves caress the shore,
To lure sweet grains of you away
Away, into my depths.
Come Grab Me AwayMay 2001 - Copyright
Come grab me away
Like a kidnapping gypsy,
And be the savage fiddler for my dance.
Come be my bare feet
And the wind in my hair.
My runaway train,
And my unbridled steed.
Come fill me with wildness -
Like summertime storms,
And free me with the passion of your touch.
BeaconMay 2001 - Copyright
A million miles I’ve traveled
Following that brilliant beacon -
The light that chose my course
Across a hundred million waves.
No neon sign
Or candy-striped lighthouse,
No morning star
Or crescent moon,
But a light so much brighter than the stars,
And more everlasting than the moon -
I followed the light that filled your eyes.
And you came to meet me in the middle
When you saw the light in mine.
Sleep May 2000 - Copyright
With your arm tightly wound around my shoulder
And our melted flesh slowly fusing into one,
I wonder could I share your dreams
As easily as I share your skin?
To ScottMarch 2000 - Copyright
Your gaze penetrates through me
Like sunlight through glass,
And warms me from the inside to the edges of my skin.
Your words collect within my brain
Like the petals that collect beneath a blossoming tree,
And when I walk among them, their fragrance gives me peace.
Your arms are my sanctuary,
And your heart is my hearth.
You have made me so profoundly happy
That the angels are jealous of me.
In the GardenMarch 2000 - Copyright
A smiling, freckled child,
Still sullied with an afternoon’s play,
Will tenderly clear away the shadowing branches
Which hide the tiniest seedling in his garden -
A shoot so small, that had his parents found it first,
They would have torn it from the ground as a weed.
I feel like that shy sprout
That somehow you saw fit to tend.
For you have cleared away the darkness
That I never knew was shading me,
Until I felt the warmth of your sun in my heart.
Come Closer to me Than This February 2000 - Copyright
Come closer to me than this;
help free me from this vice.
Though I want nothing more
than to step outside myself
and to walk beyond this wall -
without a map I will be lost,
and I cannot find the door.
