Eternally aware

How does a love
grow so deep;
how does it fill us
until we weep?

Such a powerful force
rooted in the heart,
grown stronger each day
by never being apart.

Physically we can be absent,
as wonton bodies need rest,
and separation often helps
to put us to the test.

But to be intimate together
is about heart, soul, and mind;
that’s where the closeness is
forever aligned.

And so I’ll always be with you,
whether you go here or there,
connected by our love;
eternally aware.

Saturated Pleasantries

ocean

Intense and intriguing thoughts
Left him grappling with his mind
As she saturated him with pleasantries
Which was something he’d always pined

He craved more than just her body though
He ached for her soul and mind
For he knew if he could consume her
He’d have everything he’d always hoped to find
