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

rose sky

roses fill the sky
with the fragrance of the tide

as petals sing to the moon
under the canopy of our afternoon

know

there’s always been a piece of me in you

a mirror or two
reflects back our love

while we climb the ladder of chaos

still embossed
with an evening of frost

as we set off
on a journey to reclaim our love lost

the flowers prose…

as the pain grows, it reminds me of the flowers
prose, blooming under the sun, and
often, on the
run

hiding in the shadows, and lurking just beneath
the surface, it rises like the tide, this
swelling in my
chest
it is
a

lifelong romance, just like the joy that lives on the other
side, when we abide, and take the center
in stride
we

come out, wide-eyed, with love as
our guide…
