Ode to Edward

it is dark
but there is a glow from the east
the beach is still suffused
with your beauty
the universe is happy you exist
and so am i
happy and excited thinking of
the man i love, gorgeous and sexy
and diving for every ball and
getting the spikes over anyway
even though your contacts
messed with your depth perception
i'm glad i don't wear them
your beauty to my naked eye
is pure perfection
and now i return to that inner world
where you and i lie holding each other
and speak of our love everlasting

Ah, the five a.m. afterglow lingering from yesterday's volleyball. What better way to fill my thoughts as I sit at the office because I don't want to face the grim loneliness of an unshared home.
