My Lover and I 

 In a thousand different ways, my lover comes to me. 

As often as the waves meet the shore does he come, and cover me with unending kisses which fall softly upon me like the gentle rains that water the Earth.
He warms me with his fiery passion like the hottest of suns, then cools me in his depths like the vast ocean.
He is everything to me as I am to him, because in our truth, we hold nothing back from the other.
We offer it all in our devotion, devoid of fear; for what is there to fear of the other when we are cut from the same cloth?
We two are one, as our hearts join and beat together, our minds meld into the same thoughts, our souls merge into the same eternal flowering.
No amount of time or space could ever separate us, for in our love we are joined forever in such a way that no magic, no evil, and no artifice of the human world could ever cause to be torn asunder.
We are everything and we are nothing.
We are all people and we are no one.
I am he, as he is I, and onward we go like this, always united as one in our love that has no end, forever and ever, we two.

Borrowed Time 

She was here on borrowed time

Although, that she was here at all
Was truly a wonder
For everything about this world
Constantly tried to pull her under
She knew the horrors and the truths
Her eyes had been blinded by the proof
She’d always known that evil lurked in man
It was the sheer magnitude of it
That she couldn’t understand
She’d been touched by fire
But rather than letting it consume her
She instead, burned brighter
She’d encountered troubled waters
That were determined to outdo her
But instead of letting them drown her
She merely let them flow right through her
She was a loving being
With a wide range of emotion
Her heart swelled and swirled
With the depths of the ocean
Not a warrior, though she stood for what was right
Not a fighter, just a vessel for the Light
A humble servant
Here to minister to each call
In loving service every day
To One and all.
