I think of You~

in the rain-
darkness, the sunset
being sheathed i sit and
think of you

likewise, or
perhaps in whispers
-i tell you-
the normal assumes a glow
everytime, it rains
and there in my heart
a distinct un-frazzled
symphony rings insane
in the rain-

and us-
do you ever wonder-
we had been spinning
dreams, dragon-
fly gauge
iridescence blooming wet
like petrichor from
the shy womb of our earth
holding secrets in her net
darkness, the sunset

evading the soft
periphery bet-ween
cherry and
star-shadow stud
the low billows of clouds
perched on woodlands-
i have been penning
songs of despair and us-
on some lost strand
being sheathed i sit and

i love you
like i’ve never
loved before. i love you
the way it rains
with an euphoria true-
infinity, every distance
and i, disarmed
in your half-moon hue,
think of you (and only you)

  1. Oh my word. Sheesh, woman! I’m dripping sweat and an eternity of trees between my spells of crying. You amaze me! Stanza 3 just blows me away, and Stanza 4 right behind it. You write other-worldly, painful love poetry like none I’ve seen.

    “and there in my heart
    a distinct un-frazzled
    symphony rings insane”

    Amen. Whew. I feel sated. I adore you.

  2. ‘Petrichor’ is such a wonderful word, isn’t it? The myrrh of rain and grass and woodland and earth and soil. I love how you wove ee’s words into a wondrous, uncoiling declaration of love. This glosa shines up until the subtle and courageously untraditional coda “(and only you)”. Well done!
