Better than before.

Close the eyes of your heart
and feel the contours of this man.
Trace these scars, a pathway in braille
through hourglass sand.
Of the time of warriors, and a
life sorely misplaced.
Kiss me softly for I have wounds,
and bitterness you can taste.

A dream in shades of blue,
while the mysteries seep through,
the hands within my mind
grasping every thought of you.
Lie with me a while, and breathe
this poetís breath.
As your bodyís warmth caresses me,
and my fear is put to death.

Although the blood has long since gone
I sometimes feel it there,
and mask the pain behind a smile
so most are unaware,
yet you are there between the lines
and see my secret dreams,
where you place yourself upon my hurt,
or certainly it seems.

Perhaps itís merely fairytale
and all I feel untrue.
Then forever will I fantasize
on never losing you.
Just know your words have touched a man
once broken by a war,
and simply with the words you say,
heís left better than before.
