Piece of me....

Don't really have anything to say today...so here's a lil piece of me.


I’d like to take a picture of us in the world
Then cut everything else away.

I’ve etched you in my heart
So we’re never apart
You and I with nothing in between

I want to put myself to sleep with thoughts of you
And wake with you on my mind

I make my home your embrace
My forever in the smile on your face

My soul aches for you
Even when you’re near

Your heart beats softly
And I hear “I love you”

The truest thing I’ve ever heard
Never in a word, but a touch
A glance; romance is in your eyes

Your body doesn’t have enough places to kiss
Even if I were blind not one would I miss

I’ve recorded you like Memorex
Immortalized you on paper

Imprisoned you in my thinking
Your love is for my drinking
And I stagger with every sip

You are personal to me
My private stash of heaven
Forever mine will you be
I take you personally

And you think you can't write?
I know everyone interprets things where they are, but I looked at this as a prayer.
