blocking my view

all that I see

something brand new

in front of me

chasing a high

excitement’s rush

makes me just fly

everything hush

time is a blur

gone in a blink

watch my brain whir

yet I can’t think

focused on this

lost in the drive

what did i miss

feeling alive

Nighttime by Toni L.A Clegg

I drift awake in darkness sweet

My toes caress your sleeping feet

I feel and hear your slumbering sigh

And swiftly how the hours fly

My fingers tangled in your hair

Our breath is mingling in the air

Together curled beneath the sheets

I feel your pulse, your heart it beats

My thoughts are far and yet so near

With hopes as poignant as my fear

depth perception… by Toni L.A. Cross

you think you see me
so clear
because you think I let
you near
I’m hiding in plain sight
my dear
the brightest smile and not
a tear
so bravely hiding
every fear
it’s all about how deep
you peer

Age… by Toni L.A. Cross

Age is a sly old stranger

who comes at the close of the day

Age is a regular charmer

who begs to come and stay

Age is like the furniture

you know him like your stairs

Age is a sly old stranger

he’ll catch you unawares
