Portal To The Sky

Written by: Alyssa Finley

You in focus, world a blur
My eyes trapped in deep allure
Racing heart and soul endure
Caging love in self demure
You are a king as you appear
Hair cusps at your ears;
Hanging crowns.

As shooting stars drag my dreams
Over and across the blue marine
To the next world of hopeless gleams
An hoard of wishes and obscene
For your voice to caress my face;
Lullabies.

Across my eyes you skim
you step, you dance, you spin,
Smiling with your sideways grin
You give me goosebumps, out and in
Read the braille on my skin
An alphabet of three repeated words;
I love you.
