Reflect

Smell the flower,

Smell the sweet

Take my heart

Make me complete

.

.

The sweet smell of flowers

passion penetrates the air

Offers of love

Heart and soul laid bare

.

.

We align

we connect

Breathe in air

We reflect

.

.

Heart over head

It does rule

Truth is belief

I am nobody’s fool

.

.

Reflect

Be nobodies fool

Sweet

The crush

The crush

Eyes meet

My cheeks sting as I blush

My heart races, I tremble

I am smitten, I have a crush

Am I a fool

To allow my body over sensibility

to make rule

The choice is no longer mine

My senses alive with thoughts

Body’s entwined so divine

Your name lingers on my lips

Like a secret confession

My eyes follow your every move

My sweetest obsession

Waiting in fervent anticipation

To respond, to accept, to return

My passionate infatuation

Grief

Sadness

Swallows me

I close my eyes

Your face I must see

I listen for your sounds

Where are you, comfort me please

I see you at every turn

Happy and playing under the trees

Rolling, laughing giving my heart some ease
