    her colors brighten
    memories peppered with gray hues
    sunny yellows
    fiery reds
    singing blues

    inching through life like a caterpillar
    doing what only she can do
    passing from tree to tree
    branches
    leaves
    yet
    always finds her way
    back to me

    she first blossomed in my morning
    and still graces my nights
    we are connected
    by an old injury
    a trick bone that seemed to
    never heal
    even in the dark
    where dreams shine
    we are never alone
    her dazzling colors amaze
    smile sings a song
    never fades–even in the dawn–
    she
    remains
    strong.

    slowly,
    closing her eyes
    wrapping herself for a long winter
    cocoon covering dull colors,
    who she used to be,
    we always remember
    this lovely caterpillar
    cloaked in spun wool
    holding in those beautiful colors
    the kind that seems to blind
    finding stories of adventures
    chasing dreams
    seems this inching worm
    was born to fly.

    and the dew of the morning
    like a cool mist
    makes the black even brighter
    the smile even wider
    we will miss her
    this Beautiful Black Butterfly
    who has yet to bloom
    bursting out
    spread those wings
    Sexy Chocolate
    my number two
    (but always number One)
    Perhaps…

    Perhaps we will see each other
    in some far away time
    in the stories I recite
    deep, recessed in my mind
    when I was still catching butterflies
    and let the Black one get away
    my heart grips a net full
    of memories of you and I–

    I
    I love you selfishly, but
    the Wind is whispering for you:
    My Love,
    Fly.

    written for my second wife, whom I nicknamed "sexy chocolate". we married at 22/23 (I was 23) and broke up over some silly stuff. after the divorce, we went to uno's pizzeria, caught a movie, and have been close friend ever since.

    she has been battling cancer, and was just given 24 months to live. i wrote this poem this morning, after a terrible cry. #justsaying
