My Light 

She sits with her back to me

On the edge of our memories
She knows I am close 
It’s the bond of our blended souls 
Her hair sweeps over her shoulder
She is the sunshine for our summer 
All the pasts of darkness 
Worked through gravestones to 
dig and bury us
Yet even in between rock and mortar 
Light will always break asunder 
And now I pause and watch her
My fairy winged angel
With a raw fleshed halo 
For generations 
We have clung together 
She saved my life 
Volunteering for the front lines 
Demanding to take the fall for us 
My sweet sweet breath of existence 
It is in you I find 
My eternal light.

I got you babe 



Our love is like diamonds 
Blasting light through floors and ceilings 
I’ve got your back 
I’m under your shield 
Barefoot on the beach 
Scars revealed 
You said I make beautiful look ugly
Words capture and transform me
There’s a spot on my ankle
Reserved for your name 
Gods whistled and blew 
Powerfully thrusting oceans to move 
The miracle to find 
The you in me and the me in you 
Webster in all his genius
Can’t come close to defining us
Beyond existence 
Beyond reason 
My heart is yours no question 
We collided 
And the cosmos went, oh shit! 
Promises inked around my wrist 
Tattooed in permanence 
Nothing will ever erase this 
Know you are adored and safe 
Because I got you
I got you babe
