An island

This island

Not drifting


In open space

Where the heart

should feel

Where love

should flow

And empathy

is gold

They are hidden away

On this island

In open space


As a prism

To hold in the sun’s light

The Calm

I want to be next to you
nose to nose
the sound of your breath
echoes over mine
the pulsing of your heart
pumps a calm rhythm
soothing the day away
and you are looking at me
I swim in your gaze
The calm
is through you
