___________________________

Always you,
my great love affair.
Our blood, our tears
intertwined like barbed wire
bound to memories
perceived differently
by each of us.

Our memoirs,
they read differently,
each cut and bruise
of childhood
remembered
so that blame is unfastened
from our backs.

The past
we carry on our backs
like turtle shells
to house us.
We retreat into it, now and then,
to remind us how we have the
same colored hair
and why we love each other.

In darkness
we played games
(like pull my feet)
when we should have
been asleep.

We argued,
you were always too messy,
I always took your clothes
(they always looked better on me).

Every Relationship
has its conflicts,
we may go years without speaking,
(though we never would)
but the fact still remains,
we are sisters.

Bound by sisterhood,
our past,
our hair shines red,
our face is the same.

This is not an apology.
You are the better half,
not that we're, together, a whole.
Your heart is the heart
I wish I had beating inside me.
But I know it beats for me,
just as mine
beats for you.

Sister,
you'll be my greatest
love affair.

I love that Tin Kettle Inn! You never cease to amaze!

I once held my heart in my hands
Wishing to give it to someone
Hoping to find a warm place
Where I could share it
Where I could offer it up
Without any worries or pain
I once held my heart in my hands

I once held my heart in my hands
And offered it up for you
You took it gently for awhile
Then simply said, Yes I will
Your lips parted and
The words slipped, like rain they fell
Yes, you'll hold my heart in your hands

I once held my heart in my hands
But now its kept safe and warm
For I found that warm place
Where I can share it
Where I can offer it up
Without worries or pain
I know its safe in your hands

Tin Kettle Inn said...

Aw, thanks Dani. I appreciate it.

You don't know that I love you.
Some days, I'm not sure I do.

That day you told me I'd ruined
you, I cried until the absence
of my tears left a pit in my
stomach. Then, you left.

Now you're back, and we laugh
as if nothing ever happened.
Some days, I wonder if you
remember. We laugh, but we
don't love. Or, maybe...

You love me, and I don't know.
Maybe you're not sure you do.

You noticed I was looking sad
You talked to me like no one had
I mentioned someone hurt me, you asked, "Who?"
I've seen the sunset many nights
I believe love at first sight
You've no idea how glad I am I met you.
I love you...

My faith was strong but I needed time
To try and figure out my life
You sat and waited for me till I knew.
You helped me through decisions made
You helped me as my pain did fade
You let me know I could always run to you.
I love you...

I've never felt like this before
I can't remember feeling sore
My heart was broken more than just in two.
I feel the peices moving back
Your love is mending every crack
I can't believe I lived a life without you.
I love you...

Together we have gone so far
I feel I can reach every star
You gave me everything under the moon.
And I hope that all the gods above
Could see and hear us making love
My body and my soul, now, one with you.
I love you...

Anticipation rises fast
I've forgotten of the painful past
Only a few more weeks until the move.
I've waited for this day to come
When our love is shown to everyone
I can't wait till I start my new life with you.
I love you...
