come dear love,run to me as the
horse I rode in youth–
my muscles stretched
to hold me steady, feet
hung midair–stars I’ve
read one of them has my
name. this fair-haired child
aches with this burn I cannot
tame. I want to laugh out this
joy holding close to my heart.
but here, we sit and you bring
me back into your lap. whisper
in my ear: I am delivering you,
taste & see it. Keep your mouth
open, so I may fill your tongue
with goodness, praise right to
my eardrum. I revel in your laugh
-ter, the light in your
eyes captivates me. Stay here in
this embrace; watch me
make you sparkle.
Prompt here. I looked up carpe because I wanted to see if the title works and it’s hilarious, really. Seize, enjoy & jewel. 😂
Oh, Jesus, whatever you are doing to my inside, whew. I feel this joy bubbling out into a smile staring at the sun, just sitting here. You are driving me crazy in the best possible way. I know you see me mildly afraid of this joy, like it isn’t for me or something. But you say I can experience your joy. And it’s so whoa, and I feel okay until the lies come but you sing over me.
Hold me close. You’re just so ughh, kind, patient, hopeful, lovely.
I’m just waiting for you to pull out a confetti canyon or a whole load of it falls out of the sky. That’d be cool.
And hilarious 🎉
