scent of jasmine

You.

It’s always been, given to me once
at the precipice of a love

filled with tales
grim
and others’ riding the backs of whales

I listen for you in the nightshade
of a heart asundered

by the mere mention of your name in pale
and indigo fibers

filled with stitched together riders

their hearts, gold through and through
just like the love I feel for you

A moment.

I pause to breathe
and exhale the scent of jasmine

realizing you’ve come to me in time

with the music I hear, for two, everytime to my heart
nearer, are

You.

guide unknown

painted hills and magenta skies
call to me

to see
all that I once believed

as lollipops arise in your eyes
a special place in my heart

they do reside

inside
the love that goes out with the tide

and mingles with the salt and stone
a guide unknown

to those that know, a place called home

iron leaves

guidance comes on the shoulders
of mountain tops

a reliance

on the love living inside my fingertips
short, and stout

they speak to me of dreams, unseen

a reality
forged from iron leaves
while the fragrance of love always makes me believe

in you, my love

Can you see me through the pain inside the loving breeze?

I can see you too.

it’s here, my love
where I will always wait for you

Hidden Inside, Published at Spillwords Press

I am excited to announce that my poem, Hidden Inside, is now available at Spillwords Press. A big thank you to Dagmara K., and the whole team at Spillwords for publishing this piece, and for their continued support.

Hidden Inside

I crumble like stone
into a void with no home

falling

I try to understand the pain
and trauma coming up

within a body and mind, a disease
no one can find

hidden

inside the elements of being
swimming upcurrent…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

lavender lines

tumbleweeds thread the head of a pin

while the size of our love’s always been
reminiscent of the dreams laden in your hands

like the flavor of morning dew
know that I’ve always seen you…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
