A Velvet Touch
A Velvet Touch
You carry a velvet touch with you,
A very sensitive touch that's tough.
Tough enough to strike fear in hearts,
But soft enough to caress those hearts.
You carry a lustrous warmth about you.
A calm and caring aroma follows you,
It trails behind you leaving your scents about.
It brightens your charm and reflects on you.
You carry yourself down with you.
Your shoulders slump from an unseen weight.
Misdealt issues wander about your mind
And leak out to those with proficient taste.
You carry a burden in your soul with you,
The burden of having hardships and losses.
You're burning inside and it shows on out,
Out in the light, in the openness of space.
You carry a friend in your heart with you,
Someone who would never hurt your velvet touch.
It's too precious to destroy a perfect gift.
I care too much to break your heart.
You carry a wonderful love within you.
A vast love for everything and everyone.
A great love that shows no one out done.
A private love that you share
i need to get away.
everything seems to get to me.
late afternoon, clouded and frigid.
dreary since, I woke hours before.
barely rested, couldn't sleep last night.
my morals caught up in my head.
trying not to be scared, dripping palms.
i'm only here because i was hurt,
thinking i can escape my pain
by being with somebody else.
stomach in a twist, heart thumps.
hand being held, eyes being adorned.
hair being brushed with strange fingers.
i don't think this is what i've needed.
unknown lips press into mine.
i need to run away.
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
