City Lights

Everything glitters

From motion

From life.

 

Watch the world

Move around us

As we sit in silence

Thinking about time.

 

The time when

We discussed the page

We were on

In the book

Of our relationship,

And we ageed

On page 314.

 

Or when we drove

Through the night

Straight ’til morning

And we struggled

To stay awake together

But pulled through

To watch the sunrise.

 

We’ve seen so many

Sunrises

And sunsets

And city lights.

 

And here we are

Watching the lights blur

Past us in a flurry

As we sit

Picture perfect

With my head on your shoulder

And your arm around my waist

Pulling me close

Holding me tight

Forever frozen

In this moment.

Still [Life]

Canvas

Freshly stretched

And never used

That smells of paper

Feels like silk

And tastes like new beginnings

Until you pick up your brush.

 

Inspiration moves you

Stroke by stroke

As you create a masterpiece

Day by day

Until passion dwindles-

Then you’ll wait

Until it strikes

And you’ll overcome.

 

The end result

Will be a painting

Of insurmountable beauty

Created by the still life moments

That you captured in your mind

Heart and brush

Forever preserved in paint

For all to see and admire.
