A beautiful anomaly

The strange inspiration of being in love

A beautiful anomaly

You are my muse.

Because of you, light is born from my chest-

rising, seeking out the highest peaks,

sinking, spilling,

a magma of passion enveloping the deepest crevices of my mind.

For the first time, I feel that I am soaring.

Inspiration has always fallen through my fingers-

like sand, gripped too tightly, pouring from my grasp;

The ghost of what could have been lingering on the tails of my breath.

What a precious anomaly you have been,

teaching me to pluck beauty from each staggeringly plain moment,

showing me the simple pleasure of being alive.
