Guest

To the one, this someone
My impossible one
You know me and yet know not.
You grow on me.
You grow like new ivy winding up a lightpole.
You warm me like hot cocoa
And linger on my breath
Like steam from my morning shower
You glide with gentle footsteps
And knock timidly on the entryway to my realm.
Knock softly
And I will take you in.

I shall sit in the parlor with clasped hands.
I shall sit neatly
As one does before an appointment
I shall wait for the call, the little call.
Call softly
And I will take you in.

And so it goes
And I will open this thing,
This red heart
And prepare a seat for us.
You shall come sit a while.
Sink into the soft cushions
And we shall intertwine our fingers.
Love softly
And I will take you in.

The Awakening

So here I am. This is it, and every particle
has fused together. perfect, concrete.
(...uprooting Violets)

Who I was
before
i knew myself
and
always have been.
today I have
awoken.

Today is the day....
...this is what the wait was for
before i knew myself...
And who i was, Am, and yet to know
(...i buried the Violets next to the mossy stone...)
(never liked purple really)

and Now.
Yes, now is my time

... and in My Moment
for this fragment
and five perfect Red Roses
have opened...

Very nice. I always find reading other people's poetry hard. It seems like such a personal thing. I really liked "Guest" a lot as well.
