why is it lonely tonight

just like every other night

for the last sixty years

i did not know

who i was

i did not know

what i was

i did not know

i could love

i did not know

there was someone out there for me

i came out too late

don’t you see

mystical you

the color pallet


of  you,  my love


spoke of pure,  ivory joy


an expression of light daffodil sky delight


deep eyes of midnight blue


wisteria whims wandering freely


playfully along your ear lobes


gently lifting your sepia colored hair strands


so whimsically between your fingers


as your peach colored lips


smiled so softly, invitingly to me
