Your taste is salt on my lips

My mouth puckers against the tang

Feeling my breath stolen by your sweet words

Intensity of your eyes shattering glass

Beneath the power of your affection

Catching me up into the wings of love

Floating as if on an eagle’s back

Clouds of dreams blow away my misconceptions

Replacing them unnoticed with undying faith

That you will keep loving me

Through my days of being lost in my- self

And unreasoned anger

Boiling my affections to a fever- pitch

In the subtle caresses from your heart direct to mine

Jolts of electricity run through our fingers

And I’m lost in the sea of you

Drowning with an ecstatic smile on my lips

A happy victim with a stolen heart

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
