April 8 – When I Love You

When I love you
I love you long
Deep
Hard
I love you to the bone
Cut crisp open
Exposed
Naked
I love you whole heart
Broken wings caged
Scared
Lost
I love you down dirty
Pulled full apart
Shadows
Sadness

When I love you
I love you all
Whole
Full

P.S. Sorry for the delay, and being passed when I was supposed to be officially done. I am working on catching up and hope to have all 365 poems up by the end of July. Ending my year long poetry run…and then, maybe I will try something new.

March 13 – Love’s Reckoning

You
The light
The darkness

A sharp pain drilling into the edge of my skin
An imprint that cannot fade

The sunshine burning on my upturned face
The stars that beckon in the night sky

I am afraid of the power of you
I fear nothing when I am with you

You
The goodness
The bad

The cool water running down my back in the rain
The chill of a winter wind turning my hair

The dip just where my neck meets my shoulder
Where your tongue traces lines as I shiver

I am scared of the force of you
I am a force with my love for you
