Muse: Swimming the Distance Between

I look into your blue eyes,
humor and kindness dancing within
like stars, hung around the moon.
I wonder how to cross that space between --
You're so near to me, touchable yet distant.
Buoyed by love,
I will fill that chasm with water
and swim to you.

Thanks, William. I figure, if nothing else, my Muse is helping me with things like metaphors, similes, and allusions.

Years ago, I had a male friend tell me that I wrote some of the best porno he'd ever read. (Unfortunately, the man didn't have the word "erotica" in his vocabulary. :-b) I just managed to write stuff w/o ever being literal. Now, I suppose I'm trying put it to use for a more general audience; Sometime-y I manage it, sometime-y I don't. :-/
