Coarse, pencil stubble of stone,
Cut, earth’s shards of strength,
Memoirs, edges of emotion,

For love,




Ocean’s apogee,
Farthest from life,
Wanting, upwelling,
Forging, firmness,
Deck’s steel,
Wresting, wanting,


My eyes.

Plainly portrayed,
Pupils painted,
Iris’ iridescent…


Mouthing my secrets.

Murmuring my wants.

Whispering my worries.

Moment’s merging,
Your body,
My longing.

Your heart,
My forever.

Your luster,
My palette,

My eyes…
