Here I fall
though I remain calm
for I know
what awaits me is warmth
& not an endless pit of uncertainty.
a tranquil ring to its name
& as I fall
I find peace & acceptance
in you catching me.
A Sea of Blue; A Sea of Green
Your eyes change color
like the flux of my mind
but you find homage
and soon you become
as clear as crystal
-you are the only thing I am certain of
I keep a hidden box in my closet
for only I to keep
its contents are private
infused with truth you may seek
As we hide behind facades
of resolution and forbearance
we both know the feeling
that lingers is inherent
how you leave me
Waking alone, with the chirps of the
birds at dawn, was not as
intolerable as I had once believed.
Maybe it was due to the involuntary
way that my amber eyes revealed the
dim light that shone into my room.
Maybe it was the way the rays of
golden hues illuminated the
prominent specks of freckles
that rest upon my fragile cheeks.
Or maybe it was your name
that lay on the tip of my tongue,
freed from the chambers of my mind,
that made my awakening bearable.
