- Clara
are warm like a summer
spent in bed with nothing to lose
and everything to do,
are sweet on my lips
and I can’t stop looking at
your mouth,
are a streetlight under a
blanket of dark and the mist in
the early mornings of autumn,
are cool and slick like
black ice too dangerous to cross,
are the perspiration on my cheeks
as a fever runs in my heart,
are the dawn before the sun
fully wakes, and thaws the ice with courage,
are the map spread over the
dinning table, an adventure waiting
to begin, a tank full of gas and
the match ready to be struck.
are the catalyst for the start of something
so exhilarating I’m already out of breath.
are the love tucked into my chest,
carried gently in the pockets of my mind,
reminding me I will never come across
a star as bright as you.
