butterfly kiss

the sky, mountain
high

sits in my heart
and at the center of time

you, my love

bleed
through my skin, pores

thin

and, transparent
a fragrance

clandestine, and
hidden

beneath

a butterfly kiss
upon my forehead, to me

you gave this final gift


butterfly kiss was inspired by the poem Something Stuck, by Tricia Sankey.

a gentle touch

passion lives in the wind
and in every pocket of your skin

just as magic resides
in our hearts and minds

Do you remember how it felt when kindness reigned the night?

love burned brighter than it’s ever been
caressing every tree limb

while dripping with a gentle touch
it’s just enough

to know you are there, and I am here

waiting upon your kiss carried on the wind
like seeds floating through the atmosphere

the membrane between you and I becomes thin
