Beyond Beyond


I got half way through
The Last Jedi and hit
the pause button

I’ve gotten older not
necessarily smarter
but today I did it

I bought the first decaf
I’ve ever bought except
by accident drinking

my second cup now
as its going on eight
and your day ending

you heard me right I’m
drinking decaf into the
night first time ever

I forgot to tell you today
because we got hung
up talking laughing

about the perpendicular
but really horizontal or
something like that

(the breathless and
speechless force
was strongly with us)

drat I still have to
put clean sheets on
my bed forgot all day

I may not even watch
the second half tonight
no need

I know you’re about to
lie down put your head
on your pillow

I can smell your hair
I can taste your lips
when we can’t touch

I know the true force is
with us a Jedi doesn’t
come close to what we

have and the force of
our love unites us
forever

beyond beyond

On My Eyelids


I missed you so
I couldn’t wait
another second

I had to text you
but you beat me
to it by a finger

touch by texting
woke up with
you on my eyelids

(so loving, so sweet)

that confirmed
what we both were
thinking and feeling

at the same time
though thousands
of light years apart

well, a slight
exaggeration to note
how uncanny it is

that we both missed
each other and
wanted each other

to the nth degree at
the same time while
so very far apart

yet our hearts and
minds were in
perfect alignment

(speechless)

so my dearest don’t
be surprised when I
tell you

I’m going to sleep
with you in my heart
on my mind and

on my eyelids

The Summer Wind


the love of my life took the form
of a fairy muse her breath was
sweet like the summer wind

then her heart whispered
what can I do for you

I could have sworn I felt the
brush of her hair or was it the

touch of her wings or her lips
parting the air

my heart was thinking that the
only thing keeping me from

kissing you is time and space
so I don’t know what you

can do for me but wait could
you take the form of the woman

I love and knock on my door
the air became cool your hair so

soft the smell of you so sweet
so which is the fantasy

am I alone or did I just hear a
knock at the door

the love of my life took the form
of a fairy muse her breath was
sweet like the summer wind
