Only Words

You say “I love you,” a recipe of letters
that could stir up a magical moment,
but they’re only empty air bubbles,
meaning nothing without the alliance of
actions and yours are lacking. My heart
will 
bend, but it won’t breakI’ll always
remember 
those sweet moments of tender
kisses and 
hand holdingunforgettable
nights and 
mornings of loving each other,
but the
fun has vanished like water droplets
on a 
summer-kissed sidewalk. I’ll be fine in my
own company, yet, if by chance somewhere
beyond this storm, another love finds his way
into my arms, they’ll be open to letting his
charms lead me home. You had your ending;
now I embrace my beginning. Who can say when,
but I’d be willing to fall in love all over again.

Do I need
fifty dollar words,
candlelight and wine
to express
what’s on my mind?
I’m not one
to write heartfelt
emotions in rhythm
or rhyme
No poet, am I
and no fancy words
can match the hue
in your eyes
so I’ll be wise and
take my cue
and simply whisper
“I Love You”

Carried Away

 

Heart Shaped Moon 

Buried deep within my soul

we fly among the stars

on a magic carpet

where the universe is ours

we touch the constellations

blow kisses to the moon

and when our ride descends

we whisper, “I love you.”
