Cracks In the Light

Unspoken secrets, coveted, shared.
Time that bends like sunflowers
turning their faces towards rays of radiance.
Words of love trickling
from my lips…
Rain shatters on the ground
as I turn to you
and pull you into my embrace…
Love remembered.
Shadows of the forbidden torn away
like waves crashing on the shore,
darkness receding leaving, banished,
sparkling seashells in their wake.
The longing moon flirting with a
chandelier of stars as the peaceful feeling
of safety ensconces me as it emanates
from your arms.
Grains of stardust catch the moonfire
a whisper, a kiss,
until you and I become lost
fallen into the cracks in the light.

Puzzlebox Hearts

Darkness
drenched in black
unfolds like a starless night
leaving liberty to lie
in saturated emotion.
As a sea of prayers
formed from suffocating words
slowly drowns.

In longing, I wait.
Fingertips slipping
combinations
across puzzlebox hearts
in hopes a click
will unlock forever love.

Ensconce me.

Once Mine

Once Mine

Someday folded into love letters You once wrote me,
Your fingertips brushing against arcane words scribed against the chambers of my heart, Your silent kiss uncovering the tomes of desire eternity left carved in stardust. Passion rolls like waves through my mind, I forever Your Electra, the desire You reached for across the Heavens, across the darkness,
across the sea of time.
Reach for me again, pull me into your light.

Covet the unspoken secrets shared…

Return to me, reflect on those

Precious moments…

Once Ours,

Once Yours,

Once…

…Mine.

Winter Blossoms

Frigid air pours through the window
freezing the melodious notes that
hang like crystals into shimmering silence.
Prayerful roses slowly submit
to the hoarfrost and turn to ice.
The bare branches dance in the wind
as the world sleeps beneath it’s
swaying shadows.
Winter settles.
And yet, I don’t feel the chill
in the air as Your hand slips into mine.
The velvet calm purring against
my heart as we fall into step together.
Wandering across the sleeping landscape
as the trees waltz over our heads.
Winter blossoms.

Forever and Always, My Heart Unstrayed

I stop, look over my shoulder, freeze ~ I know it is a new day…but looking inward I
become lost in dreams and shadows ~ throughout You quelled the dark echoes that
affirmed my trust in nothing ~ You taught me to never surrender to the darkness.
To trust in You, in love, to lay it all aside, the shadowed fragments, the shattered
illusions, the enshrined emotions of the slivers of yesterday. My fear You think
I suffer from a strayed heart. Banished in Your love. A pyrrhic victory.
Now keeping secrets held tight to my chest, the heady taste of sin, my desire to
fall before You and Worship You ~ I would love to love You with such intent
there is no mistake of my declaration of eternal adoration for You. Sweet Hymns of praise
shall be written in the wake of our communion. Holy adulation in litany as I
bare my soul to You, laying my heart at Your feet.
My soulmate.
My Seraphim.
I am forever and always ~ Yours. Yours. Yours.
