Tickled Pink

Flamingo feathers fall into the rainwater below,

Shading the Andean lagoons with passion.

Our carotenoids are the same, we devour one love.

Blush descends upon my freckled cheeks,

Even in the shade of the budding willow tree.

You are the adrenaline in my veins, the oxygen I crave.

Coral blankets the outskirts of the ocean floor,

Creating vast shades of the color life and delicacy.

My love for you is as simple as a polyp, as crucial as the sea.

Ballet Slippers romance the Mahogany timber to a song of future,

The melody shading and blending the past forgotten.

Our kisses linger on the laces of satin and silk canvas.

Roses bloom dusk petals with thorns alike,

Petals’ shades deepening just as my adoration for you.

Our rose stemmed from a heavy hearted crack in the cement.

You wrap me in warmth and light,

The calming autumnal sunset to all past pain.

You kiss my scars in the shadows of the night,

My heart relishes in the shades of pink from the window of this zealous plane.

I am no longer afraid to be free for you are right there with me

We, the broken and empowered, are the ones we owe this to,

All, Because I love you.
