Blue-hazel smile

Love is;
putting all my darkest nights
into a plastic bag
and throwing them away.
It’s the summer breeze on
my naked chest in the dawn
of an August day
that I so dearly miss
in this mid Wyoming January.
If love really made the world turn
we would be spinning
faster than we could see,
like the illusion of a car tire
rotating backwards.
Are things always as they seem?

Love is;
the dreams I have
of a blue-hazel smile
being pulled out of my head
and placed into the slots
of a vintage photo album
so I can always remember
when I’m alone.
It’s the kiss of a lion,
the sight of a blossoming lilly
in a garden of weeds,
the scent of your hair,
and your soft, steady, breathing
when we are caught
in a midnight slumber.

This love…
is mine
until the coffin
is nailed shut
over my
closed eyes.
