You make me laugh. The twinkle in your eye, the twitch of your lips, the quiver of your shoulders as you try to keep a straight face. You make me laugh. When I am sad, or overwhelmed, or tired from a long day pressing down on my back, you smile, make a joke, tickle me in that certain place no one else can find. It is love. I make you laugh. After a hard day’s work, dragging from exhaustion, head down, feet heavy, I lighten your mind. I have that silly face, a quick witty quip, a secret joke that you cannot crab at. I make you laugh. When taxes are due, bills barely paid, dishes piled high, we giggle at the ridiculousness of life’s little whims. You make me laugh. I make you laugh. Together, we make a home merry, cheery, silly and full of love, till death we do part. Then heaven will have to make room for our laughing, devilish, amused angels. And our suitcase overflowing with awful, groan worthy, hellish puns.

From this twisted, dark and stormy night
I crafted my mood, my sense of revenge
I say let the lightning strike… twice… twice

.

I took you in like a sweet orphan
Found on my doorstep, I gave you cover
From this twisted, dark and stormy night

.

With a kiss on my lips, you took me
My heart rusty, you oiled my passion’s fire
I say let the lightning strike… twice… twice

.

Your hands tracing my curves, captured me
Slicing new lines of life, a safety net
From this twisted, dark and stormy night

.

I let you in deep, deeper than god
You took everything I offered, and more
I say let the lightning strike… twice… twice

.

Then you were gone, and I called down pain
A bolt of dark electricity shot
From this twisted, dark and stormy night
I say let the lightning strike… twice… twice

Love.

Love…
Found in quiet places…

Making friends…

Lost to thoughts…
Dreaming blue skies…
Darkening…

Clouds rain…
My pain increased…
Romeo disguised…?

Death
is
Final.

Is death disguised?

Romeo…?
Increased pain…

My rain clouds darkening…

Skies blue…
Dreaming…

Thoughts to lost friends…
Making places…
Quiet in found Love…

Love.

In My Dreams by Cicely Robin Laing

.

In my dreams…

I watched them play…

Up on the hill top, on a windy day…

There was no sorrow…

There was no loss…

Just a kite to fly, and a ball to toss…

Happy laughter…

The sound of running feet…

Inside this memory there was joy to meet…

The rustle of wind…

And the crack of thunder…

Spoiled my sweet feel of slumber…

Now, awake…

Beneath these layers I lay…

Wishing for the break of day…

To shed the thoughts…

And hide the tears…

Of missing you these many years…

In my dreams…

I get to play…

With you… on a hill top… far away…

When we make love…

I do not know where you end…

And I begin…

Your absence is an avalanche

that buries me everyday…

Each memory, every story

is a wave that carries me astray…

I cannot stand before this tide

of emotional disarray…

Your absence is an avalanche

and I don’t want to get away…

For all the debris that covers me

makes me want to stay…

Bury me, enfold me in your.. avalanche

Until I feel… okay…

When he watches me

I feel smaller than a speck of dust in the universe…

Planets will wander

hoping he will notice them…

If he grabs you from your orbit

Don’t let him kiss you…

He will deceive you with his passion

He will confuse you with his poetry

He will create a new galaxy… just for you

Then he will leave you all alone…

A billion lightyears from home…

You will remember his laugh

You will trace the touch of his lips

You will ache for his embrace…

But you will have nothing, just footprints in the stars…

and proof of dark matter…

I know him…

He watches me

I may be smaller than a speck of dust in the universe…

But I know

someday…

I will be watching…

and

I will be

witness to his super nova…
