I'm Glad You Came

Updated on August 16, 2013

I'm Glad You Came

Pigments of periwinkle, dew kissed, sparkling, and suddenly dancing, twinkling with enigmatic wonder

Enchanting an irrepressible delight, awoken startled, disorientated

Ascending in a swirl from deep within my belly, and finding life as an insouciant smile on my unsuspecting lips

Dancing slows to a sway

The twinkle intensifies and smoulders

Periwinkle deepens to rich azure

Mesmerizing, penetrating, searching my soul

Deliciously vulnerable under the weight of your gaze, and carnally desirous of your thoughts

Light melts away, the moon finds shape in the night, and stars burn holes in the sky until the sun resurrects

Steadfast. Unrelenting. Constant.

And all I have are the moments that make it so my world will never be the same

I'm glad you came...

      I like where you're from - in words and time... A pleasure to meet you too, and thank you for taking the time out to find and read some of what I have written, and for your encouraging feedback, it is so appreciated. Take care too.

      I like that I had to travel the US route to find an interesting Kiwi poet able to ignite passions beyond those found in NZ. Nice work and clearly the talent scouts were not wrong in leading others to your stylish and heartfelt poetry. Glad I followed them and had the pleasure of reading your works and meeting you... take care.
