Life As An Art Form

Quips & Commentaries in Prose and Poetry

I miss you…often
And especially, this afternoon.

Then again
You give me so much to go on
Your absence leaves me craving
Not wanting
The difference is subtle
I want for nothing with you
Your love is perfection embodied.

The afternoon sun warms me
And right now, its brightness is like a reflection
Of your style, your grace, your kindness,
The very essence of you.

I squint at its glare
until my eyes fall upon the larger-than-life shadows…framed so beautifully
By your scent, your lips, your smile
Your rhythms, your movements.

You’re better than good to me
You’re good for me
In spite of me
With me
On me
Oh!
It’s all good!

I bask in the afterglow
Because even when I’m not so good
You bring out the good
In me
Makes me want to be with you
For good…for ever, for always

It’s definitely a …Good Afternoon, my love!

“Comes Love”, as rendered by Dianne Reeves
