Talking has become 
too complicated 
for me, 
conversational situations run 
through my head;
I fill with
"What-if-I-said-this?" until 
I am left with 
only a cacophony of silence, 
and I say 
nothing at all. 
Even now I 
am stumbling across 
these words, 
trying to sort out 
thoughts and imagery and 
I hope you don't mind 
that I'm not quite all there 
right now,
I don't mean 
to be ignoring or 
passing you off
with silence and monosyllabic
but lately I've been staying quiet 
because my mind 
is so loud 
that my language has become

my darling, 
I asked for a star, 
you sent me a galaxy 
to light up

see faint glows; 
all I want 
to do
when you get lost
is to send you 
the stars, 
even if not to guide you 
but to light your path 
on the way home.

I've always felt
that my body 
comprised of 
angles jutting
pointed shoulder blades,
cutting hips and 
peaked collar bones; 
a fitting exterior 
for someone who would 
otherwise be 
too soft. 
But when I feel 
how I fit 
under your 
casually draped arm, 
how your hands settle 
on the base of my 
your fingers tracing lines 
down my thigh;
you melt me 
back into 
soft arching curves.

Delayed Spring

Like a 
delayed spring, 
you plant flowers 
in the once 
snow covered banks 
of my heart, 
with fingers churning dirt and 
lips sowing seeds and 
loving words nurturing seedlings 
in warmth; 
patiently, you gaze
as I unfurl 
and reveal my petals 
to you, and 
you alone.
