From Kiss To Kiss

I walk to the sea
on the path where your feet
have kissed the earth too
when you were in the same land,
on the same side as me
when the sea didn’t separate
but held us both together
As I let the earth kiss my feet
it’s like you kiss them
and then I walk straight through
the past, the present, the future
from kiss to kiss with you

Intimate

Those nights that I wrote you
I bridged the distance between us
with my words,
pulled you in letter by letter
so we could be together
in the naked space where
your eyes and my pen,
your silence and my words,
your heart and my heart met

Of Use

If the wind just blows through her
as if she doesn’t exist,
if rain falls anyway
and stars disappear
If words don’t really need her,
the world won’t even miss her
at least her heart is of use
as it loves him

Knowing

“Stars, when will I see him again
Is this all real, is love real
Why is all this happening
Why, if fate is written in you,
if you seem to know everything,
why, is the night, why are you
so silent then?
Why?”

And the stars quietly whispered
inside of her:
“So you can remember to know it
yourself”

I Hold You

I hold you dearly
within the rain, the storm
the pain, the thoughts
within these words
in all that I know
in the unknown
in yesterdays
in days to come
in far away
in so, so close
I hold you
even if my arms now
have nothing to hold
