November sky…

November sky, infallible
diving into a mystery, caught up in a slow dance
lost in conversations, handwritten love letters
skin to skin, heart to heart, atom to atom
souls meet, sparks fly, a thousand meanings
where do you begin, where do I end

our minds can’t fathom
we are what we are, whatever that may be

unfettered, feeling alive
the calm after the storm
nightfall, slow dancing.

I’m all up…

I’m all up in these feelings, crash landing
not sure which way is up or down
my world is engulfed with thoughts of you
and I want what I want, come unravel me
set me free, make a believer out of me
love me till I’m on cloud nine, floating up up and away
cause darling, tonight, I ain’t got the heart to feel lonely.

you are infinite

You are infinite, always have been
lingering in-between unspoken lines
moving through crowds, electromagnetic
sweet madness, unrestrained
blind love, young love, old love
beyond any reasoning, you are their everything.
and in everything they are infinite.

A universe of…


A universe of atoms, that I am

I feel it, this wanderlust.

This unabating need for something

more, something otherworldly.

I hear it beckon the fire which slumbers

and I can feel this immortal soul, restless

clawing its nails against the bones of a foreigner.
