to my valentine
in my bed
of thornless sterling roses
with petals on pillows
echo the softness of your voice
in their sheer lavender skin.
the hush and sssshhh
as i lay you
in this bed of petals
holding your beautiful skin in pale light
shedding your coverings
by tiny bit.
soft pink light licks your face
as you lay naked--
brown against beautiful slight purple
and i stare.
awed by the existence of someone so...
beauty exudes from your body.
i am merely a shadow above you,
watching your silhouette reach out for me,
feeling your hands scatter rose petals
over this flawed and unimportant red head.
i see you there
filling so much space that existed before.
a red cardinal riding the wings of black midnight,
laying on a bed of sterling rose petals
and i'm yours.
i adore you...happy valentine's day.
