Self-Serve

With chocolate and vanilla
smeared on our lips
we sit in cluttered silence.
Prom queens
corsages
and 30-pound babies
surround us.
What can we say?
Strawberries and coconut
fill the emptiness
while a clock announces –
it is time to go.

Airport Love

I am dropping you off at the airport
Again.
But this time, is the last time
The last time until you’re home.
Cozy and warm in 700 square feet of love
Of waking up at 5am to feel your strong arms around me
To dinners and breakfasts and snacks of
massive variety
Stumptown for one and green tea for another
Honey on our tongues
Kissing in parking lots, shopping malls, cars, bars, bathrooms, stadiums and lawns
The airport is our sign of almost being home
Of being so close to the very thing we desire the most,
each other.

To Heal

Healing is hard
when I insist
that it look like
total annihilation.
When I insist it means
removal of the very thing
that is here to teach me.

Healing is hard
When I want it my way
and not the way of those before me.
Of those who are whispering softly
for me to wake up
for me to remember that my physical body is wise.
And knows all my secrets.

Simplicity

Inside
Are all the answers
Outside
Exists relentless chatter
Quietly
Ask for what you want
Silently
Trust that it’s all coming
Listen
To receive the knowing
Surrender
And experience joy, relief, peace, love.

It is all here for you.

4am

You are lying next to me
Your breath hot on my face
Opening my eyes gently
I see you, peaceful, full of dreams
Covered by a warm, white comforter
My legs wrapped delicately around yours
I always knew it would be this way –
You, me, peace, comfort, relaxation
Naps at 2pm, nights in with Alaskan halibut,
Roasted veggies and wine, wine, wine
Meditation and angel cards
Ab Friday’s, hikes for miles and miles
Couch talks that last into all hours of the night and morning
It is love, this is love
I close my eyes, wrap my leg a bit tighter around yours
And go back to sleep.

Sunday fun and a poem slipped my mind! Here’s the make-up.

?

I cannot imagine a world without you
Without your smile
Your glow, and your sense of style

I cannot imagine the world existing
If you would not be there to speak to it
To hold it, and care for it the way you do

I cannot even fathom the sadness
Of not waking to your gorgeous face and
Feeling your skin every morning

The Universe can’t imagine it either
Which is why It gave me you.

—————————

It’s Easy

Healing is easy
If you remember
That you’re perfect,
exactly as you are.

I always think I can’t fall more in love with Kinnikinnick Foods, but then, they do it again. This time it’s a spring seasonal donut – blueberry. Me and the man started our Sunday with this delish donut and coffee/tea (green for me!). And wow – we were speechless!

Order your package of blueberry donuts today. With only 140 calories, no gluten/dairy/soy and minimal sugar (for a donut), you cannot miss this deliciousness. My beau says he couldn’t even tell the difference between a gluten donut and this one.

BTW – I’ve tried almost all of the Kinnikinnick donuts and these are the BEST!

Bake in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes for absolute perfection. Do not microwave or eat cold – you’ll miss the full donut-delicious impact.

Happy Eating!

09 Apr / NaPoWriMo: Day 9

Lock

Eyes lock
Memories engage
Lips lock
Lust ensues
Pure ecstasy
Takes over
Leaving nothing
Left to
Chance.

Fantasy Meets Reality

In my fantasy,
You do everything I say.
You adore me,
Worship me
Are committed to what I want to create.

In reality,
It is nothing like this
And I think –
How could I be so wrong?

Except, I’m not wrong
It is all happening exactly as I intended it,
So very long ago.
You are playing your role and I am playing mine –
Brilliantly.

It is exactly what I need
Pure and simple
And I can never ask it to be more
Or less.

It isn’t worth it to question life,
it won’t ever be wrong.

Of this I can always be sure.

The Conversation

It has been a year since we last spoke.
Do you remember?
Today, finally, I felt brave enough.
Quite naturally,
we picked up right where we left off –
Polite. Quiet. Content.
I imagine this is how life works, in all regards
how the pain of lost love fades
Give it time, give it quiet, give it peace
Then it ceases to exist.
Before you know it, you’re having a conversation
with an old friend.
