A Love That Makes Time Travel Possible
The First Poem
Though I am wrapped around you,
As you drift in
That fickle maiden steals you up,
Yet will have nothing to do with me.
I am left alone with my thoughts.
Alone with the street sounds,
leaking through the blinds.
We stay reluctant to acknowledge the daylight
as it beckons on the other side.

The Second Poem
The weight of you on my lap
Was no weight at all.
In slumber you sank in,
As I was washed with light.
White light swallowed city clang
And I swear the air around us sang
With the serenade of that city clang.
I awoke when it happened again.
And there we were still laying down
When I wrote a second poem for the one I love.
