you are

you are in my periphery
you are my focus
you are always where i look
you are inside my eye lid
… wrapped around my optic nerve
you are everywhere, evident in everything
you are just below the horizon, and when you rise
… sparks scream across the morning sky
you are the perfect ending to the perfect love story
you are the dark spaces between the stars
you are also the stars
you are sriracha on my tongue
you quench my thirst like the coldest water
you make my mouth burn, with that over the shoulder glance
you are insomnia with the best best dreams
you are original
you are my heart
you are a steady beat
you are the dirtiest guitar solo
you are the gulp of air going off the high dive
you are the plunge
you are slow motion at a break neck pace
you are temptation quenched
you are home
you are in our bed
you are in my arms
you take me to places i never imagined
you are answers to riddles
you are a Bon Jovi concert every night for the rest of my life
you are front row seats

you are
so i am

clouds cloak the valley floor
before daybreak, they
cannot conceal the stone
giants rising above

the sun,
that fiery orb,
rises to spill its golden glow
on the granite behemoths
the clouds appear as fire
at their feet

soon the valley is clear
the rock walls are completely
revealed and beckon you
to visit the cool streams and fields
blooming with wildflowers

a visit and you will fall
in love, you will go back
again and again to
continue your affair
with the beauty and
the grandeur
