Four Seasons

Every time I see you I get drunk with sunlight

Like a hypnotic love ballad

Stronger than alcohol

You make me delirious

As I sip memories of you.

Maybe I frighten you

But the scariest things in life

Are often the ones

Which propel us forward.

I’ve been quietly simmering

In a cauldron of your energy

And what has passed

Cannot be forgotten.

Show me your childlike anticipation

Your bursting life

Your wild wilderness.

Let me free your soul

And let me be

The four seasons of your heart.

    Lovely poem. You are right sometimes things that scare us make us flight!

    That Frankie Valli showed up in your automatically generated realted posts made my day…:)

    This is gorgeous, I would like it signed and framed.
    A beautiful, wicked force of nature lives between those lines

    how true… the scariest things i have ever done have always involved moving into the unknown… but also the most exhilarating… good stuff as always…
