you are beautiful

so perfectly human
you walk amongst mere mortals
like an angel
surrounded by light
and clothed in white feathers
and gold

you smile
and everything is alive

even your name
makes me think
what is love?
and how it moves me
like a puppet

and how can it be true
that you own me completely
and you don’t even know

unrequited love

once i fell in love
with a mirage
a reflection
so beautiful
she held me in awe

you see,
life moves on
and she is not a statue
or a painting
to be admired

she is a woman,
a person.
and her neck is as graceful as an alabaster cliff
and her hair falls in spinning rivulets
and she moves like a mixture of summer and laughter
and i’m sure there are angels that follow her everywhere she goes

so i can’t look at her
she’s too miraculous
too amazing

and i’m not sure it’s really love
but it’s something like it

teenage love

all sparks and flash
smells and stickiness
finding and losing

then it’s flowers in a meadow
dancing alone
cloud watching
wandering around at the mall
drawing with crayons
cooking in your underwear
laughing at nothing
being crazy
falling asleep
waiting for something
remembering to feed the dog

and then you have to go to college and figure out what the new game is all about.

nothing makes sense

it’s like a sweet insanity
when we’re together

we’re both crazy
and nothing makes sense
yet everything is perfect

and i just want to see you smile
and hear your laugh

building love

every day
we work together
towards our mutual goal

a life
where we live
surrounded with the love
that we’ve built
for ourselves

every step
brings us closer
to the life that we want

sitting on the beach
at sunset
holding hands
with a bottle of merlot
and a small fire
to keep us warm

never again

i’ll never see her again
i wouldn’t know if it if i did
my eyes are so cloudy now
and my soul is so lost

like a single rain-drop in the desert

only hoping to be
what she could have wanted
or what could have been worthy

life goes on

somehow we continue
with or without our love

stronger for the experience
more experienced for the love
and alive

forgotten love

do you ever wake up
in the middle of the night
thinking about a long-lost lover
and wondering where they are?

like whispers in the night
our souls were so close
and then so far.

i can’t even remember
the sound of her voice,
just that it was so beautiful,
and so deep in my soul.

i wish i could remember.

sweet love

remember when
it was so simple
i like you
you like me
we like each other

we had fun
and frolicked
and played
like children

as if we were in love
