[Poetry] Where We Will Always Be

Her lips were as soft as the silky petals
Of all the roses in the meadow,
And her body swayed as graceful as
The flurries of the winter snow.

When I left her, my tears
Watered the meadow green.
All the days can pass, but this king
Will not find another queen.

When The Magic Wears Off: A J.K. Rowling & Harry Potter Post

This is not a rant. This will be concise and to the point.

[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.
