LA POÉSIE ROMANTIQUE
we huddle over the kitchen counter,
our spoons clinking together
sweet cold vanilla
melting in our mouths,
fingers and lips sticky,
and we laugh at us.
it's a bright day
and we are at the park.
i sit on the bench
reading my book,
and you take my pictures
with your nikon
around your neck.
you're sitting under our tree
among brown yellow leaves,
(you planted it last year for me),
in your brown leather notebook.
i bring warm fresh bread
and your favourite cookies
and we have our own little picnic
in our own little backyard.
we are walking down
to the local theatre.
a cold breeze is blowing
and my skirt whips against it.
you remove your jacket
and tie it around my waist.
i wrap both my hands
around your arm.
it's a full moon night
and we're sitting on our porch
you're telling me about
this particular childhood story
and i rest my head on your shoulder,
and i tell you it's okay.
and in a long time,
it really is okay.

Letters From Ryan
My dearest, time is a jester and distance's made up, nothing can stop us now
Not lines in maps or years passed on, we'll always find each other somehow
And within each letter you'd write to me there'll be x's and there'll be o's
With a salutation that reads: to the one and only I adore, so cheekily dainty in prose
You'd say: theres nothing more romantic than your written words, darling, nothing's ever lost between us two
And your scented letters filled with little tokens meant to show you're near and to always remind me of you
A crow's feathers, a page from your favorite book or lines from your favorite songs
A dedicated attempt at poetry, soothing words when life goes wrong
But most cherished of all between the lines is the love that keep both of us fond
And no matter time or distance, nothing or noone can ever break our soul's bond
I've all your letters within a heart shaped box that when opened plays a melody
All alone in the moonlight, a memory to always bring you back to me..
