Rife

Standard

This fire that is you

Burning in my veins has grown out of control.

Thoughts fanning the flames,

It does rage.

I tried starving you out of me,

Oxygen deprivation.

Breathless now,

Rife with wanting.

But I see you in the smoke

Approaching.

The desire to touch you takes over

And up turns the heat

Singeing me.

An

Insatiable urgency

Calls.

In Front of Me

Standard

The sun rose gently today,

I am thankful for that.

Giving my eyes time to adjust;

Delicate light

Touches stone

And cactus.

Life around me

Stretches and yawns at once.

The birds join in

As they announce the arrival of day once again,

Happily

In synch with the natural rhythms of life.

The sun has peaked the horizon

And now burns my eyes.

For this I am grateful as well,

To set myself free of yesterdays burdens

And confusion

With breath and light,

For this is the world

Right in front of me.
