We Were So Young.

When I close my eyes,
I'm with you.
Standing by the old apple orchard,
I remember the sweet smell of the blossoming buds.
Holding hands,
We were so young.

The smell of your perfume,
It was the only one I ever loved,
Because it reminded me of you.
When you were gone,
I was lost,
Because I could not live without you.
We were so young.

I remember the smell of your hair,
And how you looked at me.
In me.
It brought tears to my eyes.
How I felt safe with you.
We were so young.

We'd sneak off when no one was watching,
And kiss,
Looking up at the stars.
We were innocent and naive.
But we were in love.
We were so young.

Planes

I can see the planes fly out,
Over the majestic,
moonlit waters.
The morning sun still yawning,
Stretching,
Waiting for the right moment.

Bright lights permeate the dark,
Cold air.
I wonder where they are going,
What they are doing.

I long to see the world,
To be the permeating light.
Spreading my wings like the planes,
And burning my way through the sky,
Etching a piece of myself into you.

Full Moon

On night's the moon is full,
I can't help but sit,
and stare.
Dark waters whine below.

It's Warm,
bright beams,
bounce off my black
rimmed glasses,
and catch a glare.

Why does it torture us?
In all it's glory.
If it has such power?

Why can't it bring us,
the comfort we seek,
In nature,
Hummingbird,
Or flower?

If my sighs could speak,
They'd cry,
They'd bleed,
They'd sing a wailing song.

Beckoning and pleading,
To be released,
I pray for the rising sun.
