I don’t have to write a sonnet
My heart has one written upon it
I feel the breeze of change blowing through
It’s coursing through my veins too
My arms are outstretched, I can’t reach
But I’d gladly swim the Great Atlantic to get to you
Tonight the stars shine bright and brilliantly
Blazing and burning for Us because
They know and they see
Our Story: All that can and will be!
How lovely —
We both have finally woke up
Alive again in our new beautiful reality
You melt me like sugar on my tongue
Melt, then I gracefully leap and tumble
Now, no longer do I stumble, I soar
Weightless — a delicate butterfly in ruby red slippers
It’s You. The one who set my heart on fire!
Reignited the existence of desire
Flames are my soul’s recognition
A faint recollection of Hope and Joy
Burning my cynicism to ash
Given the gift of courage to NOT look away
Instead of worrying — I face my day
May I ask this paralyzing happiness to stay?
Your flames burn hot and high
Weak and alone. Oh! No, not I!
Vaporizing my demons — doubt and uncertainty
Carrying my fears for me
No need for the penchant to escape
Finally, I feel strong, like I won’t break
I love you, I love me, I love Us!
Now I know — it will always be —
Be forever with you!
