Average Goddess

Loving you in spring is
perhaps better than
loving you in winter,

the daffodils are
out flaunting their
fresh yellow figures
and pale white petals

are whispering the
promise of summer,
loving you in spring is
warmer but still sickening,

still weakening,
leaving me lying in bed
and dreaming and trying
not to imagine you

and rolling around
the covers,
now only a lighter sheet
and waking up

to morning skies that
are blue and clear,
skies that I’ve missed
like I always miss you

the day after seeing you,
loving you in spring
is like sipping
a swanky cocktail,

I know it’s poisonous but
it feels rich
and even better in this
gentle sun even

though I’m paying a high price
and I’m guilty for doing this,
not being strong enough
to get on with my everyday life,

instead I’m distracted by
loving you
like I did in the winter,
I’m foolish for loving you,

this probably average lady
who seems like a goddess
to this fool that I am
for loving you in spring.

    I must say, this is an absolutely beautiful piece. I could see the raw emotion involved as I read it and I adored it. Very talented poet.
