More Than the Addition of the Parts
The sums of all processes
The chemistry, the electricity
The bases and acidity
Warm me up to you
The thoughts that whir
That collide and careen apart
Falling into vectors of sorts
To warm me up for you
Exchanges will smother
Our breaths into each other
In the warmth that comes from you
We live and breathe as one
A bellows in and a bellows out
Hissing the sounds of hope throughout
Boiled and spilt warmly over two
Can you keep a secret?
I thought you’d always be mine.
This is the story of a girl who took the midnight train going anywhere. You say that it’s hard standing still.
I was blown away, what can I say?
Can’t you see? You belong with me. How my poor heart aches, with every step you take. She cried, kiss me and smile for me. Tell me that you’ll wait for me. Yet, you leave me here with nothing at all.
If I lay here, if I just lay here, I feel your heartbeat.
In case you didn’t know, how do you mend a broken heart? Smile though your heart is aching.
But, it’s my life. It’s now or never, I ain’t gonna live forever. I’ll keep dancing on my own. Peace and trust can win the day, despite all of your losing.
But you see, the winner takes it all, the loser has to fall.
Let me ask you. If you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted, in one moment would you capture it, or just let it slip? You know that when the truth is told that you can get what you want or you get old.
And Maybe I didn’t love you quite as often as I could have. But you were always on my mind.
In case you didn’t know, I’d be lying if I said that I could live this life without you. You want to prove me wrong? Come back another day. It’s going to take a lot to drag me away from you.
You’re the meaning in my life, You’re the inspiration. I got it bad for you, but I don’t need a cure. I’ll just stay addicted and hope I can endure.
And I don’t want to sleep I just want to keep on loving you. Near, far, wherever you are I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words how wonderful life is while you’re in the world.
I just called to say I love you. So goodbye, please don’t cry. I’ll be with you every step of the way. Dream on. Dream until your dreams come true.
I will always love you. And when you’re scared and alone, just know that I’m already home.
What’s in Store (a diet of words)
I used to walk to market
for our fruits and vegetables
for bread and flesh
...but no more.
I go now to old archives
hunting down non-gmo’s
while fingering thin labels
...cans and jars.
Craving only adjectives
Like fresh, tart, and juicy sweet!
I’m devitalized by words
Deficient in these
To the Self-Assured Gent with the Cute Dog
While drifting in the dark and mist, we crossed paths. I stopped to pet your adorably formidable dog - all three tongues licked my face, and I laughed. You were clearly not the laughing type, but I could tell you were amused. You told me how many escapees he'd disemboweled that week. Were you trying to impress me? I hope so. You were so totally in charge, I was tongue-tied, and could barely speak before you had to return to the gates. If you seek a consort, and felt the same connection I did, I will wait for you where the river of fire meets the Styx.
Looking for the drop dead gorgeous guy that was at the Kings Park library last Friday at 3 pm. We had a brief conversation in the fiction section through the book shelf. I could only see you from the neck up and figure you to be about 6′2″, with 50 shades of grey-green eyes, touchable sandy hair, strong chiseled chin, adorable dimple on your right cheek, and a thick neck that was bulging with veins telling me so much about you. You asked me what book I was looking for and I told you, Archer’s Voice; about a grieving woman looking for peace in a sleepy Maine town that stumbles upon an intriguing isolated man. I was slightly embarrassed to divulge that it’s a passionate love story, because well look at you. I’m sure there are women out there right now reading Harlequin Romances fantasizing about you. Shoulda went with my gut and let my embarrassment curb my enthusiasm to share my book choice with you damn it. When I couldn’t find the book, the librarian told me that some very handsome man just checked it out. Didn’t see that coming. Not cool dude. Bring back the book. Shoulda known better with guys like you.
