breeze brushes back my bangs
like his hand
lost in silence

heat storm
from the roof of the building
we see the lightning


on the couch side-by-side
space            between
       the silence


starry night sky
gazing upon
our future


she guides his finger—
spring blossoms through the window

autumn night, walking
just do it
hands touch

locking fingers
and their smirks

cuddling on the quad,
dreams tucked between
fluffy summer clouds

wondering what he's thinking
I watch a moth
dance in circles


his fingers folding
neatly within mine
a new bud appears

sea sand
battered against continents
same old, same old

porch steps
his hand awkwardly finds


under the umbrella
suntan lotion
an excuse to get close

hazy moon
second chances
one last time


crowded bed
I finally find a place
for my left arm


snowflakes dance
as he kneels

summer afternoon
on the old wooden bench we kiss
as your dog stands watch

risking it all
to be each other’s
summer love


our hands
like embolus and epigynum
spider’s glistening web


spider on the ceiling
my knight in shining boxers
saves the day again


first snow
finding my way into
your cubby

lips touch
one last time
departing summer


two birds bickering
love's laughter
we nudge each other as we walk


Facebook breakup
glowing sun
becomes a glacier
