bubble and squeak

:: prev :: next ::

with every word,
every thought,
and every moment we share
(whether together or apart)
i am overcome.

the liberty you show
in expressing your soul
is like nothing i've experienced before.

each of your words
are carefully chosen,
yet given so freely,
like a banquet set before me
with all manner of colour and aroma,
and laid out
unsparingly and selflessly.

you have poured out your heart,
your inner thoughts,
poured them into a cup saying,
come, drink it all,
don't let one drop escape.

and again, i am overtaken.
