Life’s Wine

Through all of time

we have tasted life’s wine

richness of deep nights

sweetness of sunshine days


we drink all of it in

intoxicate ourselves with each other

savor who we are as one

If we never stop searching

for sips of divine love

every minute will be worth it

Drowning in Cabernet

drowning in cabernet

She tried drowning

drowning them all

in cabernet


the burn for touch

along every inch

and unusual place

of desperate skin


the ache to be seen

as beautiful

and hear the words

in sincerity


the craving for kisses

long and slow

adoring and true

any given time of day


the hunger for eyes and smile

to light up

as he looked at her

in mundane moments


the thirst for romance

sexy or silly

reminding her

it is still alive


the thrill of

teasing and flirting

being 19 again

lost in their own world


the desire to be

his everything

cherished and loved

held so tightly

inside his heart

she would never think

of drowning
