Latori Praesentium

for e. hernandez

there is much to believe in what you have
for it is real and sincere…


———————————————–

you lend meaning to joy

like never defined before

it is like putting lemon drops

in the sky when it bleeds

giving timely relief

to my parched heart

and emotions sprouting forth

into otherworldly greens—

our budding haven


in this intimacy, i find

a myriad of possibilities

and in their unfolding

there is much to lose

as there is more to gain—

the gift of you


I try not to stifle any laugh

nor moans of grief—not

that there is grief to feel

but I let all feelings show—

it is the least i could do

now that more than

what you give

has come my way.


In silence therefore, I love you

With all my laughter

With all the salt of my tears

I put flavor to all that there is

Be it for now, be it for tomorrow.
