Whispering in White with Blue Smocks

You are magic.
You are sweet,
even when you’re pissed.
You fire my spirit when I have none.

Men enjoy being more powerful
than storms.
I am fragile, but I want to stop the ocean,
holding my hand high,
firmly as a traffic cop
or a father across the dangerous street.

I want you as an eagle.
Swoop and steal me.
Fly me through oceans.
Come cover me in your snow.
Bury me with your storm.
And sing, sing loud in blue.
Will you wear black?

    Men stronger than storms would be useful.
    but its not necessary…

    “You are sweet,
    even when you’re pissed.
    You fire my spirit when I have none.”
    So lovely, a gift of words…

    This is so beautifully written… powerful and yet baring a vulnerable personal truth

    Love it! So glad you stopped by my little place on the web so that I could find this… thank you.
