You and Me

“What is love?” she asked

does it stagger, or does it grow

does it fester, does it flow

is it precious,

or is it blind.

is it something quite divine.

“What is love?” she asked

“love is this.” he said

love is faith,

and love is kind,

love is endless,

 love is time.

love is drastic,

love’s untold,

love is treasure,

love is bold,

what is love? she asked

he whispered,

 “love is you and me

Fell in love

I fell in love with the most courageous person…
Who laughed too much,
And cried too little,
Who seeked adventure,
And stories to tell..
Looked for love,
Her prince of Wales..
Was brave and kind,
Of brilliant mind
Was flawed at times,
But knew her rhymes
Endlessly searching..
Hopelessly lurking..
I fell in love with
ME

Abused

It is bruises I see,
A black eye
A controlling stare

A ‘fall down the stairs’ you say…
You avert your eyes,
Don’t you dare

“He loves me,” you yell,
He can’t control his fist

But “I love you,” I yell,
I cannot see you LIKE THIS
