Those things you did

Those things you did to me last night...
Shook me to my core.
Just the memory of it,
Makes me blush with excitement,
Sigh with renewed desire.
And I can't even look in your eyes,
Because I'm certain you'll find out,
About the things you did to me last night...
In my dream.

Can't Sleep

So here I lay restless in bed,
The bed as empty as I feel in this moment.

I can’t even understand what I am feeling.

So I impatiently compose in my head what I could do differently.

What choices I could I have changed?
What words could be said that would fix everything?
Tonight I have no answers.

Happy Anniversary

I've become a student
of your morning faces,
your thoughtful pauses,
your simple good-byes.

I'm a learned pupil
of the shape of your hand,
the rhythm of your breathing,
the voice in your smile.

And I could write volumes
of the pictures in your eyes,
the depth of your throat,
the topology of your flesh.

Yet still
You surprise me.

**Originally written in 2004... still true today.**

You make me want to be ridiculously irresponsible.

Those eyes pull it out of me.

That voice makes me forget all sensibility.

You stir up something animalistic in me.

I can’t concentrate or think logically,

Beyond figuring out how to have you.

I am normally so practical,

So what is it about you that makes me lose my control?

You... my family

I have always been grateful for the amazing gift I was given...
You... my family.
Two parents, crazy in love.
Two strong, assertive sisters.
Uncles and aunts who know how to laugh.
Grandparents who know how the world works.
Only recently have I really known how rare a gift it is:
Solid family.
It's a gift I hope to give my children.
As comforting as chicken soup,
As forgiving as a safety net,
As rich as history itself.

Sometimes unspoken words are stronger.
I'm not sure what you mean,
but it is making my imagination run wild.
And that smile makes me wonder about your hidden intentions.
Maybe it's nothing,
but when you looked at me just now...
I felt it from toes straight up my legs.

When you wake from your nap

When you wake from your nap,
Cheeks pink and warm,
Blue eyes wide.
Completely refreshed.
Ready to take on a million adventures.
You stand up as tall as possible,
And declare something inexplicable,
With so much passion.
I can tell you've been waiting, to share it with me.
Hello, Beautiful Girl!
