Random Poem:

We'll Hide Ourselves Away

Softly, she speaks,
under cover,
so lovely and so blue.
Wide, wild eyes, and stirring sighs,
speak volumes more than words can show.
She melts at the edge of my fingertips;
held aloft in my arms,
ready to burst like kerosene
desperate for the softest spark,
insatiable for the fury of incandescence.
When we lock eyes
I feel the universe awake.
I hear a song from beyond time
gentle, fluid, and sublime,
pulling me back to the
source of all being.
The songbirds become louder,
and how the sun shines!
When we are in sync
all of existence lay calm and serene.
So stay here my love,
find solace and peace;
we will hold each other close
until our sparks begin to cease.
