He Holds Me at Night
11:37 PM Reminiscing together As the moonlight and diamonds of the sky Smile upon us through our bedroom window in paradise.
I am not the dirt on the ground to be stepped on, disrespected, Unnoticed, not admired. Sprayed off of a car with a hose.
What the Universe Told Me
I walked outside With my head hung low. Eyes closed, Weary soul. Troubled By the turbulence of life. Heart heavy as a brick.
She walks into the room With grace and authority, Like the lioness of the jungle. Fierce. Skin glowing Like the sun over the ocean.
Awakened by the coldness of the night, I sought solace in my porcelain mug Filled with vanilla chai. Steam rises And warms my hands.
