You are the sum of my dreams
and the essence of my longings.
I crave your touch.
You are my fantasy lover.
You are the energy that lifts me to play amongst the clouds
in search of the sun’s pathways.
You are my refuge from the panic monster
a touchstone bringing calm and clarity
a source of strength and love
a reminder that a constant exists
that caring and kindness do not cease
because time and space intervene.
Miles cannot defeat
this life affirming evidence
that connections persist and bonds strengthen
if we open our minds to possibility
and our hearts to kindness
and breathe in the wonder .

Can you define love in a word or two???
a totally inadequate word
for this passion that rages
Outpacing each obstacle
tossed in its path
for the unimaginable depths of feeling
welling up unbidden.
Overcoming guarded habits
of a lifetime.
for the fierce unwillingness to bow to reason
rendering demographics meaningless
by overriding time and space
to meet on another plane.
longing to be free of the earthly pull
to tear off restraints –
overwhelmed by the sheer joy
that lifts my spirit to the heavens
yearning for moments yet to come
to touch your lips, to gaze into your eyes
to feel your breath warm my cheek
Our hearts beat in perfect unison.
But not that
Not the death of hope
Not the final killing blow
Not the end of my world.
I have lost so much
There should be no surprise
That a passion so rare and elusive
Should be ripped from my heart.
You eased into your news
tried to lessen the shock
Divulged a few details the other day
Finished it off today.
You have been so sweet
Right from day one
And today was no different
Softly and gently killing my soul.
The central premise of my universe
Has vanished – a tectonic shift
Now nothing holds my world together
Without you – I will reach out to emptiness.
Grieving the death of what could have been
Pain profound a bottomless pit
I simply don’t want to “be”.
I want to go to sleep and never waken.
