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

every moment

when you whisper in my ear
and i feel your neck against my nose
and your smell is a part of everything in my brain
when our skin is touching

when we don’t need to talk
and you want to hear me anyway

when your softness surrounds me

when the waterfalls all flow out to space
and the snow is everywhere in the streets

when the sparkles
leak out of our bodies
and we can’t remember our names

life goes on

i miss you

i was just thinking about you
and wondering if you were thinking about me
because it’s been a while since i’ve heard your sweet voice
and felt the tingle that you make me feel

and it’s almost time
for us to talk
and i’m a little excited

and then i call you
and your name pops up
before i dial
because you called me
just a few seconds earlier

i just love it
when that happens

extra kisses

it’s time to go
there’s never enough time
so we steal a few smooches

and just a few more

now it’s time to go
and we really need just a little more cuddling
and a few more kisses

because there’s never enough love
and never enough kisses
and never enough cuddles
to last till the next time
