Random Poem:

Mature Love

Autumn yellow leaves
gets blown by the wind
gracing the pavement
flowing, touching your
the scarf we bought at Target
and probably smelling your scent.
The sounds of dog barking,
unexpected frisbees flying,
young naive teenage lovers
cuddling by the wooden bridge
to our left
is nothing more
but a reflection of your smart ass grin.
As I stroke your hair
on this park bench,
one stroke is all it takes.
For you to express yourself,
for you to ramble about your day
about the Nancies, the Emmas
the misters as I look
into your eyes
when I'm really in outer space.
As I stroke your hair
on this park bench,
once more
thats the perfect time
to nod and smile.
