“Your Skies” by Slings & Arrows

palm reader

When I look at you
I dip my mind into answers
that will never be questioned
you touch the edge of my happiness
that I never knew I had
you touch me in the morning
so I can watch the making of my day
you touch me at night so I can choose my dreams
I tattoo my love to the wings of a blackbird
and send it to your skies
where I hope you will look up and see me
on the wings of a blackbird

I am learning with you
learning the value of you
I am learning with you
learning the way you must be
I am learning with you
learning how to love you
I am learning with you
learning we are one

Your skies are made of gold
mine of fools
your skies tell tales of happiness
mine of sorrow
your skies show the sun the way home
mine of loss
your skies teach birds how to sing
mine of silence

You steal my sight
you steal my thoughts
you steal my breath
I love my thief

you touch me in the morning
so I can watch the making of my day
you touch me at night so I can choose my dreams
I tattoo my love to the wings of a blackbird
and send it to your skies
where I hope you will look up and see me
on the wings of a blackbird

    Wow. I wish someone would write a poem like that about me… So beautiful and wistful and sorrowful and ripe ripe ripe with love…
