Music To Cry By (Sade)

She is just beautiful,

sleek, smooth, black,

like a midnight sun,

rolling across the ocean’s tide,

I watch her,

eyes that move through me,

when she looks,

when she sees me glancing her way,

I wonder sometimes,

when standing before us all,

if she can feel the passion,

we all believe is moving through her body,

when she does sleek,

melodic with grace, an elegance so defined,

we just cannot understand why,

such wonder really does exist,

tonight before our eyes,

can we just listen all night long,

and melt away the fear, just listen,

again, another song,

and her voice,

her eyes,

her words with her eyes so smooth,

that elegance is a magical journey,

we wish upon ourselves,

each other,

there’s absolutely no way we cannot.



Truth is Beauty

That’s when I love you,

when I can know the beauty,

every day, so many worlds,

so often we see our truths,

and walk right by,

lives busy with that medley of forgotten

dreams, desires, notions.


That is when I want you,

when I can feel you near me,

beyond your lovely physicality,

yet in the mind where we always wonder,

always wandering, we wonder why,

our hearts feel the way we do,

when love has stepped away,

in the fastidious nature of time.


That is when I need you,

when the pain becomes real,

and I can’t forgive myself anymore,

knowing I let beauty walk away,

because my dreams failed to include,

that simple blend of love and, some call it,



I love you tonight because you are with me,

our world is together, creating that easy magic,

we once wondered if it had truly wandered away,

just another distant memory,

the truth is,

I still love your beauty beyond words,

in my veins, that if I were to pour wide open,

would spill their soul in grateful memory,

your beauty is my memory,

want to, want to keep that with me,

right now

beauty, yours, is …

right, with me.
