we meet again.

please let this be
not coincidence
not loneliness approaching
some body
nor paths so broken they meet
to say what can
only warm the unsettling air
i am swept into his smile
like stardust over the moon
i lie upon his lap
and sleep as though her womb
we've not adjacent lives
but there is an aisle now, lit smooth
no slanted noosed pain can move again
not within his reach
love may not be easily right
but gathered steadily through time
and if that is yours and mine
- come keep me

wild sea

Forgive me
Like the wild sea
If I am so cold
If I am that rapid
If I may lean as too far away begins
I am as the wild sea
Too strong for my own good  
But I didn't mean a thing
For doesn’t the very wind break a tree
That once it moved, adoring.
