Love

n.Love is a mysterious thing
Like air we don’t notice it exists
Until it fills our lungs
Or like the sun on your face, the warmth

n.Love is By definition infinitesimal:
immeasurably small like a nebulae
Clouding the vision before it forms into a birth star

n.Love is the consequence of two great forces
The known and the unknown merging and emerging

Therefore love even as it forms cannot be defined it is always fluid ever changing
yet existing, primordial through time

Becoming

Becoming is not steady
Like a mystery being revealed
Becoming is nature as a colourful face
Waiting to be seen
-v.

Fighter

Scream all the stars out of the sky if you have to
Call their name but don’t let it end
Love is a fight and you my darling
You are a fighter

Star gazing

And I can’t stop staring at the sun
It’s an empty affair without you
I can’t stop walking into the firehouse of old
I’d barely meet you,I never see you
The fireworks go off and we begin again
But I barely know you how do I know you
And we talk while we slow dance

The evening is a blur
I can’t stop staring at the sun
It hurts my eyes it hurts my eyes
Look at you you don’t grow old
You and I are living in a myth
And the sea is an eternity away

And we ride our bicycles
Up and down the lane
Unaware of each other’s presence again
We’re married to memories
Of things long ago
Star gazing and wishing
For someone we don’t know

Love letter of an artist’s wife

You have the face of an artist
A soul destined to capture the world
With every steely eye
I carry you in my heart

You have the hand of a sculptor
Shaping and shifting me off balance
Every sight is a genesis of Venus

Crafty craftsman crippling my walls
Challenging the definition of a muse
Meet me in the eye of my storm

You’re the architect of all my lighthouses
Drawing me back to the shore
Cautious captain caught in my hurricane

You are the writer of beautiful things
Every word is the conception of infinite little stars
Constellations searching for the miracle of love
I cling to the miscellaneous galaxies you weave

-v.

High tide

I hold on to the shore
But I can’t escape the eye of the storm
The waves keep crashing in
But I’ll stay in the currents
I’ll wait in the hurricane
At the peak of something I don’t know
Remembering all the mavericks
That break my shell like walls
Just to glimpse the naked eye
I’m nature by design
The undertones are the strangers in the crowd
But I know you like I know myself
In high tide when the ships are going down
I’ll stay above the waves
In the limbo of jaded infinity
-v.

In the wild

In the wild of my thoughts
The jungle of living
Persistent was the world
And breath by breath
I fall into the limbo
I swarm above the cities
Covering the fickle things
In the wild was all feeling
Covering both the giver and the given
And as my body emptied my soul
I’m older then the day before
And the chalice of time touched my lips
I hear humming of my childhood like bees
Flying and floating away
In the wild of my living
I lost my child brith thoughts

The Architect

Argo painted on the walls
Light years away
Orion on your face
Flush
Beautiful sounds of the young
And born in the midst is the sudden mind
Restless in pursuit
Order the skies galaxies in hoards
Flooding the sky
Earth born vessel carrying a miracle
Immaculate conception
Form again and turn the world
Into your eternal confection
Asterisks in the beginning
Bluejay in the winter snowflake in the desert
You’re the impossibility rarity of life
We’re searching for the writing on the wall
The mysterious message on caves and coves
Sweeten the still life blossoming in June
Until our world comes to ruins
Then call this world house or home

-v.

Dazed and confused

I’m feeling blue

Because all those beautiful words aren’t

For me they’re for you

I’m not your muse

And that leaves me dazed and confused

For a little while for hours

I’m the sandcastle you don’t believe in

And the waves hardly crush me down

But you tear me in two

If ever there was a time

I’m dazed ,dazed and confused

At the thought that I love you

All the blues meet the green

All the suns fall into ravines

And the night owl peers for more

As I knock on your door

Honey sweet honeydew

What I’d give to have you

You leave me dazed , dazed and confused

The night sky the misty moon

They were all parts of you and that made me blue

I’m not your muse

I’m just dazed, dazed and confused

-v.

People watcher

And your story I loved
How you both got up in the morning
Had your breakfast together
Love is still alive even after the weathering

I recount the number of times I watched
You fold your laundry
The amount of times you entertained guests
Just a yard away

I recall all the times you’ve cut the grass
All the times you watched television at night
I remember how intertwined you are to my story

To you both I am the woman who never closes her curtains who watches the sky desperately on New Years Eve

I’m the woman who dances in the night when she can’t sleep the one who never breaks
The magnifying glass between us

I’m the people watcher you call neighbour
The one who will never greet you
For fear it will ruin the magic of our wonderful game

-v.
