Poetry is a clear window into the heart. I often write to express the thoughts and emotions inside me--not knowing what will appear on the page but invariably discovering more about myself and the world around me.

I am a Lover

Posted Saturday, February 02, 2013

I am a lover
Not a fighter
I kiss the world
Hold it tight
Embrace you
Touch you
Love you

I am a hedonist
Not a puritan
I pleasure the world
Experience it fully
Push you
Control you
Worship you

I am matchmaker
Not a referee
I bring together the world
Speak to it
Listen to you
Talk to you
Dream for you

I am a romantic
Not a stoic
I see beauty in the world
Make it radiant
Charm you
Witness you
Romance you

I am a companion
Not loner
I assist the world
Support it
Come alongside you
Respect you
Befriend you

I am a lover
Not a fighter
I kiss the world
Hold it tight
Embrace you
Touch you
Love you
