coffee baby

Posted: 05/25/2011 in house of love, house of women

why you?

out of everybody in the world?

why does my heart crave you,

and beat faster

as if i were arriving home

from a distant place?

i think it’s in

the shape of your nose,

i think it’s in

the flat prairie way you say your words,

and in

a million things i can’t even describe, but love.

why you?

well, baby, because…

you are hot coffee,

whipped cream,

and chocolate;

i am the pretty painted mug

who desires nothing in the world more

than just to hold you.

    I love this,Shay. Thank you for reaching out and sending me the lovely comment. I appreciate it. I can’t imagine either, the devastation the people of Joplin are going through…just awful.
