trusting sunlight, reach

disentangle tight petals

unfurl, face forward

Beyond Boundaries



There is no hourglass

of time

in love.


It matters not,

if months or years pass,

love is beyond physical bodies

beyond boundaries.


Like a favorite song

heard from the middle of the tune.

There is no less joy to listen.


Locked away, rust resistant

“Love has no expiration date.”

Brokenness Between Us

When you have stomped on

the trust we had between us

flattening it

to a paper thinness so transparent

few fibers left to hold the oneness of us.

After the debris is cleared away, thorns and boulders

removed with the owning of your actions.

Damage control is called in

cracks that can only be filled

with risking to love you

again with my whole being.

No hesitation or waiting period required.

I am all in.
