listen

honeysuckle_purple

 

 

 

the night sky

is alive

with lavender laughter

and it breathes a tale

of love

ever after

 if you listen hard enough

-it will tell it

Your smile

tastes

of red wine and jelly

your eyes

light a fire

in the pit of my belly

but you aren’t listening

-no matter how loud I yell it

now the wind

is tinged

with honeysuckle and sadness

and this

might sound

like madness

but if you listen hard enough

-you can smell it
