Favorite Quote:
"The words "no" and "not really" are not the same."

You lock away my love with your eyes.
I’ve forgotten who I was before we met,
but I don’t want to remember.
I’ve found the rest of my life.
It was empty, waiting for you to fill it.
Without you, I’d been insignificant.
I’ll love you from the inside out,
kiss your eyelids right before you fall asleep,
cradle you in my arms in a hum of warmth,
and never let your toes get cold.
If you weren’t my other half, you’d be my whole.

The author's comments:
When I wrote this poem, I was thinking about the little things that would make love seem more precious. Love is the focal point of a metaphor. Except, it is a metaphor that only shows its true colors through actions. Words are ancillary.
