i was blinded by you once, the way you twirled

my thoughts and made me crumble to my knees.

i was kissed once, when you stopped me dead

in my tracks and faced me. i have dreams

that I catch

and others long forgotten on ribbons.

you see me,

but not through me,

you feel me,

but not on me,

you understand me,

but which part?

my heart does its own sinking

and drowning.

revives. dies. quivers.

regenerates. poisons itself.

it’s my artistic way.

everyone knows. it’s not a deep

secret. tug away. pull me harder.

there’s more depth,

who knows how deep the ocean is?

these homes on different parts of our country

have their own drum beats.

each so unique to my love.

i love being this way. on the edge.

stuffing gifts in parking lots

meeting deadlines with a smile and

grace. no one can beat me in

creating priceless beauty with

art and words. i’ve touched so many

lives. and still i’m a fool.

for you.
