Sent

I sent you words

that left my door

open to you

 

They were not easy

but they were

 

Forward,

honest,

and sincere

 

And they carried

all of my vulnerability

beneath

their ink

 

They laid

dried upon

one sheet of paper

 

That I folded into

a crisp, white

envelope

 

Which is no longer in my sight

 

But will soon be

in your possession

 

For the same mysterious one

Unknowing Trade

Now I never will

trade away peaches without knowing

they are gold

 

Until now I never knew

 

Their worth

Their sweetness

Their shine

 

Or the sincere simplicity

I once held at their peak

Of ripeness

 

Which I cannot buy again

But can wait for

 

the honesty

to say hello to them

again

 

Next season

Ties to You

Ties to you

are pathways

stretching from the past

forever looking forward towards what comes next

 

it is as if our lives are so

closely, yet loosely intertwined

that we feel we may dangle common conversation

above the world

in easy contentment

 

and still believe that it is something new and grand

 

it is in this easiness

so entirely second nature

that convinces me to believe

that ties to you are really freedoms

 

reminding me of strength and

in other moments introducing me to

a unique meaning of happiness

that is bestowed upon me

 

for knowing you
