Your every word flutters down,
Butterflies to the ground
Loosens me... in a spiral
Of warring rainbow strings

My whirlpool... is your smile
Strewing petals upon my sullen earth,
Turning me inside out, cultivating
Till I wake in blissful rebirth

You lure me to take a dip
Into an open sea of
Long forgotten paragraphs
Spins me around a concert ticket,
Bus ride, and black and white photographs

I blossom under your eyes
As the silence between us

You are... pure gentleness
You are... coaxing winter
You are... my eloquent silence
You are... my metaphysical drug...

But you are a force of nature
Too beautiful for me to keep
Perplexed, I ask myself
Evening fool, why don't you weep?
But my understanding is far too deep...

And while departures tear people apart,
Your every leaving... turns into a page
I keep close to my heart
And this longing keeps on going, unquenched
In a blank space saved for another day

You are a simplicity I crave
In my world of complexity
The mere experience of you,
Has brought me so much... poetry
