Nothing More Beautiful

A whisper can silence all my chaos.

Your melody can reach that voided spot

and comfort my heart.

It’s not just me but it’s who you are.

There’s nothing more beautiful than you.

 

With a blush of dawn,

you push me to keep going on.

A smile worth smiling back,

I can take your hand and try again.

There’s nothing more beautiful than you.

 

How does one payback a lost angel?

With a pocket full of sin, a man can still be grateful.

Mesmerized by all you do

and what you have seen me go through,

I want you to know that

there’s nothing more beautiful than you.

Days of December

Days of December
my least favorite—the sixth
Child of Winter
another year older
Your birthday wish is on my Christmas list
Forgiveness

Passionate love-making
on that icy dawn
Our bodies sweating,
moaning and aching
you and me on a sheet of melted ecstasy
Gone

Days of December
remind me of you
Warmth I can’t remember
unable to thaw the memories of having her
My frost-bitten lips still whisper,
Happy Birthday…from someone you knew

Her Vows

I’m a bit nervous writing this today,
confessing the words I know I can’t say.
So, if you don’t mind
I’d like to take the time
to say what isn’t mine.

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

I wish I can tell you, “You look great in white.”
and how much it hurts me with her at your side.
Her hand on your ring
I whisper silently
the words that came from me…

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.

When it’s all over, I’d like the chance
to have and to hold you in one last dance.
Swaying in starlight,
you lean in and I can see it in your eyes
telling me, “I’ve always loved the way you write.”

“I’ve loved you forever—
I always have.
We have more than enough love to last.
And look at you now…
You’re my Prince Charming, my kind-kindred soul”
Seeing you happy, I’m losing it all.
So please don’t be mad if you found this out—
that I’m the one writing her vows.





Forbidden Fruit

There,
within reach,
hangs an immature heart.
It’s sweetness so tempting
and having traveled far for its knowledge.
Loneliness will be a memory now.
Twisting and pulling,
the fruit comes undone at your hand.
Savor the taste of an unrequited love,
not of your garden
but of another.
