Love’s Note

Love’s Note was written,

After thoughts,

Between words,

Without obsession.

Love’s Note was played,

Between breaths,

Outside sounds,

Within embrace.

Love’s Note was sent,

With wind,

Around time,

In gardenias.

Love’s Note was not read,

Under sedation,

Through desire,

In enchantment.

Love’s Note was not heard,

Inside hypocrisy,

Around mediocrity,

Over indulgence.

Saturating with silent hypnotic bliss,
Love’s Note, always present.

Awaiting Awareness in obvious sight,
Love’s Note, yearns to be yours.
