In honor of National Poetry month, I thought it'd be fun this week to dig up some uber dramatic poetry that I did in my twenties, dedicated to my future husband. First up, "Companionship"!


So-- am I finally ready to accept?

It is so clear when I have space
Space to move and to think

I have felt free, this day I have no more
Heart and soul murmurs
My heart now beats like an African drum

Your eyes are what draw me in 
To tell the story
To show me why
I've prayed for you and asked the Divine
I concentrate on words as if they were my last

With you I see my future, present 
And my past.
