Your Lips

Your lips
crash into mine
your body
a wave
I dream
saltwater safety
yet aware
always an option

Each cold night
when I begin
missing you
and reminiscing on the
nights you were here
in bed to warm it
I take an axe
to each lie and
broken dream
for fire wood
and keep my damn self

This heartbreak
But it is mine
My own burden to carry
I will live with it
And feel it, endure it
Until it is ready
To be let go
This story is mine
To own
Don’t tell me how much
Of you,
Of us
I am allowed to mourn

I’ve always loved
Felt my heart call
To explore further
Than the 4-walls
This little town
Has to offer
These dreams always
Included you
Traveling too
The highway miles
Stretched out
Across the
Hot pavement
Only now I wish
I could drive back
To the safety of yesterday
Instead of watching you
Drive one way
As I travel further
The other

Is there a better way
To describe a poet
Than through
The lens
Of her own writing?
A collection of
Most of which
Contain more than
A little bit
Of you
