Inner love

A lonely dove
looking for love,
took a short break
for her own sake
.

She looked inside
and found some pride,
feeling a shove
she flew above.


She felt awake
finding a lake,
her wings were wide,
oh, what a ride!


She saw her form
and felt so warm,
her glide was fast
in love at last.


Attention came,
found her twin flame,
flew by her side
their hearts now tied.


She did not ask
but found her task,
true love within
always brings wins
.

One

Your fingers strum my feelings,
pressing down like piano keys,
every note forms a new tune
stroking thoughtless melodies
.

Your mind an endless chess game,
strategizing every move,
fumbling through my deep thoughts,
provokes me to self-improve.


Your chest is my soft pillow
that provides protective warmth,
safety shield that offers peace,
molding my dreams as they form.


Your words all sound like music,
offer my ears sheer delight,
lyrics make my spirit wander,
unmask my eyes to insight.


My dull heart reaches the sky
while engaging with your soul,
floating swiftly like paired hawks,
for the first time feeling whole.

Our wants forever fulfilled,
a deep love that never hides,
Co-creating fated futures,
where our lives can coincide
.

Amoretti

My heart becomes a butterfly,
whenever I feel you near.
Your arms provide my comfort,
scaring off my greatest fears.
Your presence has been heaven sent,
wiping off my silent tears.
Your aura a refreshment,
making my heart bright and clear.
Your joy is contingent on mine
Your pure soul flows undefined
You point out truths showing signs
Reflective love, defying time.

Forever Love

A platypus fell deep in love,
with a fierce hawk flying above.
One day they met, a friendship set,
their heartbeats formed a great duet
.

The platypus was known as Jane,
her beloved hawk was once named Shane.
They played each day, under sun rays,
enjoying laughs when skies turned grey
.

As Jane exposed the love she felt,
Shane loved her too and promptly knelt.
Followed their hearts, right from the start,
they vowed to never be apart.

Some differences soon came to light,
Jane felt inadequate at sight.
She could not fly, lacking hawk eyes,
inside feeling her worth had died
.

Loud silence made Shane feel uptight,
he knew that something was not right.
He went for flights, promptly each night,
searching for ways to make Jane bright.

A new idea soon came to him,
to find out why Jane had turned dim.
He talked to her, nuzzled her fur
said they should become what they were.

Jane soon explained what she believed,
he smiled at her feeling relieved.

Do not feel shame, my life you changed,
enhancing it in unique ways.

The couple soon went back to peace,
as everyday their love increased.
Though not the same, they are twin flames,
eternal love they both proclaimed.

Presence

Shadowed dancer
take me on a stroll,
take me to a place,
no one else can go.


Walk me through the walls
chase me up the stairs,
look inside my mind,
tell me I am there.


Expose the mystique
that life tries to hide,
sweep me off my feet,
as your light unblinds.


Share your tune with me
my rhythm is yours,
dance in harmony,
one heart beating pure.

Hush

A silent story
forever untold,
muted tales
can not unfold
,
with no words
emotions sound,
exhausted hearts,
fall to the ground.

When old souls meet
fate repeats,
this time winning
all defeats,
sweetness gives
intentions pure,
entangled lives
a future cured.


Retracting time
as stillness sweeps,
a massive bounce,
land on both feet,
whisked through space
then planting down,
a flowered maze
in my hometown.
