Are We There Yet?

faaa Inspired by Hélène Vaillant – What Do You See 1/22/19

beautiful white snow
deceiving
in the dark night

icy and cold
chilled to the bone
layers, way too many

your world is sunny
rather visit there
wanting to thaw out

beautiful white sand
inviting
in the bright day

oh, do let me come stay with you!

Three Little Words

Don’t say

Untitled

but rather…

soothe an ache
hold my hand
watch me sleep
rub my back
make me laugh
be with me
talk to me
play with me
dry my tears
keep me warm
listen to me
don’t be arrogant
kiss my lips
really know me
get me soup
touch without expectation
ease my sorrow
hug my soul
cry with me
dance with me
please be vulnerable
make eye contact
forgive my failings
care for yourself
sex me right
cook us dinner
walk with me
don’t lie, ever
read to me
hold me close
silence my demons
reach into me
never leave me
