CUBICLE

My happiness is in a small space.
In a place in you that I’ll fight to stay.
Currents pushing and pulling,
Trying to pry me away.
But I’m in love with you, I won’t go away.

My happiness is in a small space.
In the cup of your hand when you touch my face.
In the beat of your heart when I touch your chest.
I’ll never go;
I’m in love with you, I’ll stay.

My happiness is in a small space.
In the bubble that’s yours and mine to stay.
In this place where I can’t turn away.
I’m in love with you,
Yours always.

BALM

You make the pain go away.
Not permanently, but when you’re here I feel sane.
With your contagious smile,
You heal me.

You make the wound smaller.
It’s not a gaping hole when you’re here.
Because of you I can breathe, I can stand taller.
You heal me.

You make it worth it.
Waking up in the morning, living.
With your warm eyes,
You heal me.

You make the room smaller,
It’s not just space but home when you’re around.
With your aura,
You heal me.

You make loving possible.
You give it without question and demand it without words,
With your loving heart,
You heal me.

Triumph

I can hear the song of freedom,
Wooheeha!! It says.
And when death asks who it is that dares defy it,
We are, we’ll say.
For our lives are not tied to our bodies.
Oh for sure we’ll live on.
In the songs of our praise,
And the tales of our fame,
Yes the world will remember our name.
I can hear the song of freedom,
Victory!!! It says.
For we lived and we died,
And we lived yet again
By the power of He who was slain.
And by His side we will be
Forever in glory
In a forever victorious reign.

Stolen

These demons won’t go.
They’ve come to stay,
To stake a claim.
To claim you, to take you away.

These demons are raging,
Waging a war I don’t know how to fight.
They’re wielding a weapon I can’t see,
A weapon that cuts fast and deep.

These demons have blown the horn,
Sounded a war song.
A soul wrenching tune,
Squeezing your heart, stealing your life.

These demons have come to stay.
They came ready,
They stole you,
Took you away.

Love Lust

I want to watch you,
To see your eyes darken,
To watch them burn with the fire that I ignite.
To have them smolder; embers of passion.

I want to feel you,
Your taut muscles as you lift me effortlessly.
To feel your skin burn hot with your desire.
To feel the slight tremble of your muscles as desire surges through.

I want to hear you,
To hear your gasp of surprise when I lick and bite.
To hear your sigh of pleasure when I hit a sensitive spot
To hear the sincerity in your voice when you cry out my name.

I want you.

Black eyes
White teeth.
Fine skin
My love
He keeps
With words
So sweet.
His heart
He gives
With ease
To me.
His love
Is mine
And mine
Is his.
I hope
To meet
His folks
This spring
And set
A date
To take
His ring
And then
Be his.

VOID

void

All I hear is silence.
And it feels like ages since I’ve felt
Something other than pain and despair
Since the day that you left and then night fell.

All I see is the absence
Of you in the places where you always were
Doing things so awesome, so effortless
But now when I look, there’s no one there.

All I feel is nothing.
Nothing but pain and sorrow and some regret
For all the things we did, didn’t do and things we said
And now there’s really nothing left.

All there is now is emptiness.
My heart’s empty and in your heart,
There’s nothing left.
No love, no laughter; nothingness.

All there is now is nothingness.
No you,
No me,
This is the end.
