In Sight

Are you watching the cat
from a distance
how she licks her wounds
but still tries to move gracefully
to find her way home

Or is she watching you
how your heart is wounded
but is still beating determined
and strong

Does she watch,
do you watch
just to see if you still
have each other
in sight

Ebb And Flow

If it feels like the sea
has abandoned her
and she’s been left
scared and alone
on her shore
as its water pulls back
its waves
roll away from her
she just needs to breathe
to see the sea
doesn’t go anywhere
and the tide will turn

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
