Next Time.

Next time,

You will put your foot in the water,


You will let the water get to your ankle,

Before putting your second foot in.
No more diving into the deep end,

With eyes closed,

With your heart pulsating in your hands.
The love will be restrained,

More discerning.
Maybe it will colour the quality of the love,

This new restraint.
Maybe it won’t.
Next time, though,

You will be determined 

Not to let the love break you.

Where I Belong.

I am searching for a place,

Anticipation lingers at the tip of my tongue.

A place that is warm and kind,

Where I will always hear my favourite song.

The place is colourful and bright,

It’s energy makes me feel so young.
It is filled with such depth,

My toes curl as I push my way through the throng.

I know the place, it’s in your arms,

In your embrace, I am where I belong.
