Reading Aloud


His mouth -
opned wide with passion,
words flowing like
waterfalls, gushing and
spilling from his soul.

His spirit - full of
pure wholeness, beautiful;
I wish it were mine.
I wish I could take the
raging ardor and
capture it in a photograph
or write a book, for
the intensity of infatuation
when he frowns in complication
as he stumbles on a sentence
was consummate. It's too late
for me to go back to shore -
the tide has pulled me out
and I've been pulled
in too deep.

You are the moon.
You are the ocean.
