Do you remember that cool spring spot where we met, how

I left my preconceived notion of life behind

Sitting there with you as we read your whole body & mind & heart so smooth in a poem

Timbers of your gorgeous mind

Reaching my very core and reading my mind in a subconscious foreplay

All too well you knew me before we spoke

Careless I left you my heart in a bubble of tears and lemon drops

Touching the endless cool things you left on our shelf with my eager ear

Indulging in the tactile sounds of your fingers pressing too hard on the keyboard

Over the soft side of your mouth I follow your lemon peel into the balm that

Neutralizes the dark underbelly of my horror story, the aroma of heaven overflowing over hell

love poems

    Neutralizes the dark underbelly of my horror story, the aroma of heaven overflowing over hell. I loved this line so much! Also, All Too Well is one of my favourite songs of Taylor Swift! Your poem was so magical!

    This was a great read

  • How sweet it is to know & to be known intimately. To paraphrase Psalm 133, "It is to be anointed with tender dew & gentle oil. For there has the blessing been bestowed, even life forevermore."
