Sincerely Forevermore

July 2010.
Who could guess
my propensity
for singular seductions
would deliver happiness?

You arrived with a smile,
a gem at Jewell station.
Laughing with a shared language,
music, more red wine, and
a glimpse of future elation.

The next two months;
absence, a thorn to our minds,
we spoke incessantly,
but long distance proved
too cruel, much too unkind.

September 2010.
The return! Long-awaited
Tullamarine embrace.
Such sweet sensation,
tremulous, delirious elation.

Progress between Ballarat and
Brunswick, sense of contentment.
Blyth Street abode, your hands
I always wish to hold,
shelter each other from the cold.

You are home to me,
months feel like mere days.
Meetings with mothers,
such sweet approval, but even
if not, we have no doubt,
we’re joyous, in love!

At times, it seems crazy
to me, but by feel, it’s not
madness at all. Your whispers
send shivers along my spine,
I am your green-eyed cat,
and you are my red fox.

Different, yet
in so many ways,
the same.
How can I explain?

It’s not only that you enchant me
with your artistic talent,
weird sense of humour and
chivalrous sense of romance.

Maybe it’s that I only feel safe
when you hold me,
breathe me into gentle sleep,
free from night-terrors
and panic attacks.

It’s not that you notice my scars,
but that you never want another
to tarnish my pale skin.
You encourage my eyes to blaze,
enjoy our mutual outrage at all
the lesser things wrong in our world.

But don’t judge me harshly
when we disagree.
It’s viewpoint only,
pedantic semantics,
we are so often
the same.

I love the way
you let me curl into your shoulder.
My adoring eyes smoulder
with the desire to kiss you.

If I become teary
when the world makes me
bone-weary and tormented,
you strive to amuse me,
delight and confuse me,
’til I will smile anew.

It is so easy to do.
You and I, me and you,
whatever way we phrase it,
I embrace our imperfection,
laugh with a viral infection,
that we are more gooey
than the sweetest confection.

You are mine,
and I’m yours,
sincerely, forevermore.

Sincerely Forevermore
