Ash...

Warmth is the way you make me feel
it's the way you look up with your head still down
it's the way you laugh with your eyes
it's the way I don't want to look away
it's the way you make me forget anything else going on
it's the way you make me forget everyone else
it's the way you make my walls melt and my heart sleepy
it's the way you make me want to say so
...(written years ago)

warmth is the way I remember these things
for ever so swiftly ends our fling
were you ever even here
think once of me my dear
it does not mean much anymore
never at all to you before
it used to mean something to me
but now I am numb and empty
still I sigh and reminisce
on my past feelings I might just miss
and with a smile, ever so faint
I kissed your lips, although it raint
...(and now completed)

warmth is when you look at me that way you have
it's what you alone can make me feel
it's the way I'm still warm even when Baby It's Cold Outside

    I love this one, Efren. I know you go by Jay now, but it'll take me a little while to get used to it. I'm one of six editors helping to put out a magazine of poetry, stories, art, called U Magazine. Look it up on Facebook or in a search engine. Also look up Mind's Eye. I'd love to see you there. :-) Aunt Mari

    this beautiful piece sings with such flowing lines, and the theme of love/ romance does its thing... much enjoyed warmest, nette
