Sleeping Beauty


Love
I wish I could tell how I feel
but I'm better with actions more than words
yet today I am just too far out of reach
I should apologize but you already know I'm sorry
so this is no time for sorrys
but still I'm sorry
I'm a little excited and I have no idea what to say
I could start with a cliche
like I am Earth and you are the Sun
and I just can't help but orbit around you
I'm not an artist, but I'm just drawn to you
Cheesy and a terrible pick up line
but hey can you blame me
you make my brain lose thought
and my heart skip a beat
Love, you are my everything
And I wish I could give you my eyes
let you see yourself through my eyes
for you to see how special you are to me
for you to see the beauty in you I see
Unlike these carbon clay cut outs
you are beautiful from the inside out
I act so sheepishly when I see you from afar
I know you can tell
for I know you see me
duck behind a tree
just so we can play a brief game of hide and seek
my own symbolic way of saying you found me
you found me from the darkest place I was trapped in
I can't thank you enough
I've never been so happy
just staring within your smile
just staring within your gateway to your soul
your very warm soul
Love, you are my everything
If I could spend forever
right here under the clouds
right here under the stars
on a checkered picnic blanket
with your hand in mine
your head resting on my shoulders
I will be the luckiest duck in the world
no matter how much I say I'm nothing
no matter how much I say I'm just another ugly duckling
Love, you are everything to me
Love, you give me all the confidence in the world
to be more than what I am
Love, you are everything
Love, I know you are asleep
but I hope my message won't disturb you
for you are my Sleeping Beauty
and I your noble prince
please dream softly until you awake
with butterfly eyes
to my gentle kiss, to my gentle words
Love, I love you
Love
Love
Love, will you marry me

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
