The Best Time to Write is Now... The Best Place to Write is Here... The Best Person to Write is You...


Erased by Light - Azriel Johnson - Poetry


In your arms I feel free
Constraint gone from me
The warmth in your touch
I love you so much
But I know we will never be.

When I hold you near
And kiss your neck and ear
I hold you close to me
How I lay happily
And I feel no fear.

When I ask you if someday
If there could be a way
That we would marry…
When your mind tarries,
I hope to see that day.

The sun lights up the skies
I look into your eyes
What was said in the night
Is erased by the light
And a little more my heart dies.
