By Roland E. Williams
Have I said how your brightness illuminates my soul
That feels so heavily burdened, for I know not what will happen
Tomorrow or in a moment, when our backs are turned?
Have I said how your intellect tingles my very being
That is utterly confused, for I know not what will come to pass
Between now and then, if ever, when ever?
Have I said how your learned mind comprehends kindness
That it should burn my flesh from a mere brush of your hand
Between my sigh and your sob, we should become one?
Have I said how the words from your lips are inherently poetic
They cause my mind to sway back and fro’, with each one of them
And in my embrace we have become one?
Have I said how you dance like a ripple of wind, being everywhere
And ever so slightly present in my arms, to hold me,
To move me to exhilaration?
Have I said how your beauty is magnified infinitely in my eyes
Even in your absence it grows timelessly on without end
And my heart now soars above the skies?
Have I said how perfectly petite you are, and I need no longer
Turn to my dreams to find that perfect woman of my dreams
For are you not now here, transformed to all this?
