…Told him I loved him a thousand times.
Wrote it in poems, notes, lyrics, and rhymes.
…Whispered to his mind in a million ways.
Said it in thoughts, dreams, shiny gold rays.
…Let him know it in my saddest hour,
Expressed without fear, shed tears, did not cower.
…Made him feel me in the dark of night,
Touched him in a way only I knew was right.
…An understanding place that is so rare,
Opened the heart, the mind, my soul laid bare.
…Gave safe harbor on this cruel, lonely planet,
Laid down in truth, raw-edged, heat rimed with regret.
…Will tell him I love him a million more times,
Won’t send hearts, flowers, flaming blue sighs…
…I will write it in poems, stories, lyrics, and rhymes…
(Dedicated to J.)

What do you see behind your eyelids at night?
Do you see me in your tired
I see the scenes that my desire
Of tenderness and love and lovers’ passionate throes.
Your image brands my body with a simmering heat,
A yearning for your loving is what I seek.
I wonder can you touch me with a lingering glance,
Behind your closed eyes do I tremble and dance?
What do you see on your dream stage at night?
Do you see me in your tired minds’ sight…

Earth girl treads
barefoot in the snow
Ocean boy rides
to and fro surfing
Wind cools each
soothing the hot soul
Flames burn deep
