[Poetry] Brave

“Be brave with me,” he whispered.
His eyes pleaded with mine.
“We keep dancing around each other,
Let’s not waste any more time.”

With a hand cupping my cheek,
He pulled me in for a kiss.
That was when I discovered
The meaning of bliss.

[Poetry] Epiphany

I didn’t know it until that moment
When the words hung over us in midair,
Her dark eyes wondered if I meant it
And I realized then how much I cared.

I counted our heartbeats in that moment,
While the truth echoed between us clearly,
That the woman I love stood before me
And this woman I love would always have me.

[Poetry] Amethyst

As red as a wildfire, impossible to tame,
Or the curve of her lips when she whispered his name.

As blue as the ocean, calm and composed,
Or his eyes when he confessed he needed her most.

As purple as the amethyst hugging her finger,
On the day they promised each other forever.
