My bouffant beauty






To celebrate my love for you, for your heart clutched in mine
I take a vow, each little you in me will remain conserved
I will be a memoir your beauty deserved
I will freeze all the moments
And frame all the happenstance touches

Heirloom of our love,
Your perfection and my Imperfection
The Monologue of our winks
The dance of our grins
Everything that my heart observed, everything that my eyes saw
Will remain etched in my soul

The Oodles of your laughter, near the willow
The reserve of your tears, on the pillow

Osmosis you were, Punk I was
Beauty you were, Nerd I was

Now I stand near the riverbed of your mirage
See you saturate and camouflage
In a butterfly

With Singed brows I look at the sky
To see you soar and transfuse into nature
Your core transparent, devoid of any humor, without any whimsy.

I tiptoed to reach you, you were not there,

My extended hands returned empty
