I use words to create images and stir feelings,
like the artist uses brushes and acryllics on canvas.
Like the artist's model, all I know and remember of you inspires,
and remains in my consciousness, to bring forth the words such as these.
You are in my life like the music at the edge of silence.
Even in silence, the connection between us was shimmering and palpable,
and seemed never ending like the heavens above.
We we able to love one another with the intensity we did,
because we were able to be seperate,
while we were at the same time one.
