When you are separated from the one you love, you feel broken.
You and Me

You and me
At the beach
Alone in our cove
Alive like never before.
To be held in your arms
Is likened to the beauty of early
Dusk at the summer’s edge;
Overwhelming, powerful, gentle.
To gaze into your eyes is
A heaven I couldn’t be told existed.
Your kisses, subtle they be, are
Equal only to the taste of
Aged wine in a Roman arena.
I hearken my ears to the
Voices of the sages; the modern
Comics; the poets and artists I’ve
Long admired: Among them,
I may find the words to say,
“I love you”.

You’ll be leaving soon.
You’ll take my heart with you,
Like a broken seashell
From a beach ~
Suddenly lonely.
