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.

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.

Peace

Your embrace

is the antidote

for any worries

Your arms

my safety blanket

Rei

Your presence

is a gift

that grows

in my heart

Your love

a work

of art.
