Waxing Lyrical

The clock hands move past midnight

and the witching hour

for waxing lyrical begins.

We talk about how

the jigsaw edges of my heart

fit perfectly

in between your fingers,

how we do not believe

in ghosts or past lives

but acknowledge the need to be

ever present in each other’s,

how our feelings are sensations,

seismic emotions wrapped

and gifted unto our bodies,

how your smile is smaller than mine

yet makes my whole world shine,

how roses are red,

our eyes are blue

and every love poem I write

is definitely about you.
