Lullaby

Paws

and

purrs

sweet serenade

to sleep

with

synchronized

breath.

Coração

I love you

like

the amount of grains

in the sand

like

the amount of times

the waves

crash ashore

like

the oxygen

that trees produce

because my heart

feels so happy

when I’m

with

you.

Companion

My feline friend

says I love you

either with

a meow

a kiss

wanting a boop

grooming me too

walking together

like sidekicks

or gets into a

perfect purring position

on my chest

drifting off

to peaceful rest.

Dawn’s serenity

Waking up

in love’s embrace

smiling at his

sleeping silhouette

joy circulating

through my body

Swallow

Holding

back

words

feels like

having birds

in a locked

cage

in your

chest.

Analogy

Love is like

a magic trick

best experienced

without

questioning

the how.

Remedy

Looking for an antidote

for being jaded

To discern wisdom

from cynicism

seeking

healing

light

to wield

together

the broken pieces.
