Longing

there is a longing in the sigh of the wind
cold breath that presses against the skin
timid in its softness as it blows
ruffling the edges of a dream.

a secret longing hard pressed to keep
slowly straining to be released
a wish to be unleashed unchecked
to claim what it most desires.

such sweet longing whispered into the night
praying into the starlit skies
an end to the waiting and the wanting
a light in the darkness to shine.

Choice

What choice is there for me
except to love you unconditionally?
Why give up the happiness that blooms
whenever you glance my way?
I would let the butterflies spread their wings
and flit and float and tickle me pink
because I chose to let my heart fall in love
with someone as mysterious as you.
Why should I choose to reside in darkness
when I found the light within you?
I would take that step closer to your beating heart
and let its music surround me
because you’re the choice I will forever make.
