Love Comes Finally, Finally

DO NOT MISS Reading this Love Poem!!!!


by Clementine von Radics

“I am not the first person you loved.

You are not the first person I looked at

with a mouthful of forevers. We

have both known loss like the sharp edges

of a knife. We have both lived with lips

more scar tissue than skin. Our love came

unannounced in the middle of the night.

Our love came when we’d given up

on asking love to come. I think

that has to be part

of its miracle.

This is how we heal.

I will kiss you like forgiveness. You

will hold me like I’m hope. Our arms

will bandage and we will press promises

between us like flowers in a book.

I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat

on your skin. I will write novels to the scar

of your nose. I will write a dictionary

of all the words I have used trying

I know you don't understand How I could think this, Or even consider the possibility This eraser is my friend. But that's just it, You don't truly know me, And you've stopped Trying to discover What else is within and without And there lies the problem - Apathy. Apathy kills the greatest of souls On this boundless life experience. You stopped wondering And asking questions, Stopped being curious And adventurous…

Sanctuary for Dreams

“Good food is a benign weapon against the sodden way we live.”- Jim Harrison

This bright room is one she never tires of
Where the tastes of the world are at her fingertips
Happiness packed in square glass jars
Exotic spices from India, Mexico, Indonesia
Her kitchen, a sanctuary for dreams
Where she gets lost in her seasonings.
