Love at First Sight

Standard

One cool day in October I messaged him
He replied swiftly the following day
We connected in a profound way
That to this day I can’t seem to find again
It was when we shared our stories of happiness, loss, and pain
There were all sorts of thoughts pouring through the edges of my brain
Deep inside the layers my soul collided
With the words he’d spoken
With deep tenderness provided
He would always end with a sweet goodnight
And I have never slept better, pure delight
In November we agreed to meet
He texted, “I’m outside” and my heart began to beat
It began to thud around in my chest so fast
I stepped out into the street,
Doing my best
To keep myself together
As he stepped out to greet me
My vision was flooded with everything in the entire world at that moment that mattered –
Him
His beautiful eyes, His crooked smile, his hair tousled in the wind
Suddenly, I felt what could only be described
As the most incredible sensation of joy, vigor, hope, and awe
I walked towards him and we embraced
And that feeling kept pulsing through me
Filling me with this out of control emotion I hadn’t experienced yet
And although we never met before
I knew that very cold November night
That what had occurred to me
Was the utter beauty of love at first sight

Sweet lullabies of love

Standard

I pull on my Valentine’s Day sweater with care

The one with different colored lipstick kisses that makes me smile

I paint my nails a deep red

I send out wishes to all my family

I eat my oatmeal

Love my body with goodness

That’s my Valentine’s Day

I am grateful that I have so much love in my life

And one day soon

I will swoon

Over him

And my Valentine’s Day

Will include a romantic dinner

Roses or lilies

And most importantly

Someone that loves me with their entire heart

We will cuddle we will kiss

The won’t be a hint that I miss

We will romance

We will dance

We will appreciate the little things

We will hear our hearts sing

Sweet lullabies of love

The only witnesses of our first kiss, the glitter makes me shiver

Standard

Meandering thoughts converge

Across the glistening snow

Painted across my mind

The glitter makes me shiver

It’s such beauty to behold

Fresh snow makes everything seem possible

As I’m spinning between constellations and dreams

I see you, across the fresh snow

You are the epitome of my dreams

You walk slowly toward me

I want to run to you

But I’m frozen in place

Like the ice stinging my face

Then as quickly as you came

You are gone

I wasn’t fast enough this time

I curse myself for the failure

But hope overwhelms me and

Glancing over once again

You are there again

You must have disappeared beyond the shadows

This time I blast towards you

I won’t let you slip away

As tired thoughts melt

We hold each other at last

The haunting glow of the snow

The shadows that surround us

The lines of clouds are the only

Witnesses of our first kiss

Fickle Heartbeat

Standard

When you enter the room
I can sense it
When we make eye contact
I can feel it
It never wavers
It never falters
Your presence
Is the essence
Of a forever
Fickle heart beat
Faster and slower
My blood pressure
A rollercoaster
You may sense it
You may feel it
When I walk into a room
But until we speak
And the realization comes true
All I have
Are glimpses of happiness
And a fickle heartbeat
Beating for you

I loved you long before…

Standard

I loved you 25 pounds ago

I loved you two haircuts ago

I loved you before that promotion

I loved you before that car

I loved you before that fancy apartment

I loved you before the degrees

I loved you long before the fanfare

I loved you before everything changed for the better

Because you were the best thing that ever happened to me

Before all these things

I loved you when things were hard

I loved you when life was simple

The moment I laid eyes on you I loved you

And although great change is constantly occurring

My love for you only gets stronger

The fire burns, an eternal flame

Because before you became the person you adore

You have to know one thing:

You were always the man I loved

The Glow

Standard

The Glow we all know
The smile that goes on a mile
The grin for the win
Your eyes, gleaming with surprise
Your mischievous glance, your entire motion a dance
I reach out for an embrace
But you’ve got me beat
You hold me close
On a busy street
You don’t rush me outside
As it begins to snow
You know that I love it so
And I won’t want to go
As we walk the snow covered street
Your eyes meet mine
A private moment, a love divine
And the glow we all know
The smile that goes on a mile
Is the smile only you have
When you look at me
I never thought someone would look at me
The way that you do
You make it really easy
To be madly in love with you
