Selective Focus

the big picture isn’t
always as important
as it seems
perception can be
narrowed
objection negotiated
because what’s in front
is what’s important
be present in the
present
hold the face of
destiny
and tell him
he is everything
feel the ferocity
of his response
because every man
needs to feel
that
we are the roles we play
he is my Captain
I am his mermaid
an ocean of truth
can’t change
my focus
because the future
is just us
alone in our ship
and even if
he is wrapped around
my finger
I am wrapped
around
his bow

Return

A Life in a Boat by onixa via DeviantArt.com

Not a boat, but a ship

Regal in your extravagance

Yet promising humble

Adventures

With each vowed sunrise

Glide through my waters

Where nothing

But pleasure

Hides beneath

Tame the storm that threatens

In the distance

And find a home

Within our eternal

Voyage

Render me soft as bathwater

As smooth as glass

When you plunge your way

To my depths

Take me

Dominate my seas

Float in bliss

Off my shores

Grant me only one thing

In exchange for my

Surrender

Return

To take me

Over

And

Over

As long as the sky remains

Above us

And your heart

Bound

To mine

Hold On

I’ll never let you go by pippimuckel via DeviantArt.com

the world will never
stop spinning
but the drug of your touch
the courage of your will
might anchor me
enough
keep my soul
from being pulled into
those dark clouds
let my toes find the sand
my fingers tangle the sheets
burn my breath away
with the fire of your kiss
you cannot create
happiness
but want me
love me
need me
enough
and you may calm the
storms that carry me
away
help me find order
within our perpetual chaos
show me
that normalcy
can be vibrant
hold me tight without clinging
know that I am
here
because of your playful
touches and your
brilliant mind
your gaze that elicits
effervescent joy
from somewhere inside
that I cannot name
your delicious kisses
and strong, warm arms
your level patience
and deep, willful
want
for only that which would
hold us all up
safe above the
cost to your own desires
I am yours
because you let me be
and tonight
hold onto me
I will show you
gratitude beyond dreams
for this reality
is better
than any
fantasy

Smiles flicker

Like fireside sparks

Everyone sees

The glimmer

Between us

Made palpable

Through heartache

And tears

But now sweet

In its simplicity

Your love

Makes me sparkle

Amidst the dull

Ailments

Of life

So here I shine

For you

Stardust and fireflies

In my wake

And a full endless

Future

To light up

With my love

Flight

The flight by KmyeChan via DeviantArt.com

Soaring above those demons

On wings of fairy lights

Held aloft by your breath

And will

Summoned to the sky

So that I might feed you

With laughter

And smiles

The bright, delicious

Warmth of your kiss

Denies the darkening

Stormclouds

Of yesterday

Burning each teardrop

Away

As the film

Requisitioned

By our vows

Records each new feeling

Alongside

The remembered ones

We could float here

In Neverland

Forever

But I’m not afraid

Of reality

Any
