Cake

As I cut into the Center

Of the Red Velvet Cake

I saw a ring

He was on the floor

Eyes glistening

Lips smiling

Hand holding out

Marry me Clarissa

Tears in my eyes

Lips quivering

Hands clasping around the ring

I can’t

Feet took me into the street air

Heaving like I was drowning

Why did I not love him

Why could I not say yes

Your Name

portrait-wind

I like to hear theĀ Sound

Of your name

Ringing in my ears

When strangers call you

When I call you

Your name sounds poetic

Sliding down my throat like icecream

On a hot summer’s night

Your name I adore

Your name I live for

Your name is perfect

Love the sound of your name

I want to hear it forever

I want to give you my name too

So that together it sounds more perfect

Intertwined

Locked into each other

So marry me darling

Let me own your name for eternity

So I don’t get jealous

When someone else calls your name
