Someone

Sometimes your eyes flash over
like lightning in the night sky
and you look at me
like I’m not the one you need

I wonder if it’s her
if I was gentler, if I was different
if I was her
her

would I be your missing piece?

If

If God takes me away this year
I will remember the smiles
and the laughter

the seasons with the falling leaves
and your lips on mine
like sweet golden honey

I will think about the stars in your eyes
about the deepness in your voice
words you whispered as you held me tight

hold on to the glimmer of you
you
as I sink
until the day we meet again.

Evergreen

Hey      you said, turning
at the sight of your smile, your arms and your hazel green eyes

My world returned to life,           full color
blossoming ever evergreen.

Softly

She saw the thunder in his eyes,
reflecting flashes in its green-brown hues.
The wind and its howl
and the rain
tickling the rough concrete sidewalk.

It bewildered her, to watch all of it happen
in its gentle beauty
and he
he watched her,
her soft brown hues and soft
unearthly glow.

Push

A stroll by the sidewalk
in the cold
afternoon sun

A pinch in my sides
in my feet
it hurts.

Involuntary muscle contraction
that’s what it feels like to be
with you

A painful squeeze in my chest
and my heart freezes
hot ice

If this was meant for me
why
does it hurt so much?
