Thank You

I was empty 
as a dead man's calendar
when you started scribbling in the squares
Thank you
for reminding me
how good wet paint feels
under my fingers
for showing me
it was okay to scream
even if no one was listening
or if everyone was
Your passion
your heart
runs through my blood
and colors my days
This is just to say
Thank you.

Happy Valentine's Day

I love this...I could relate this to my own Valentine story that I shared today. I know from where those feelings come....well, from my own perspective of course.

This makes me feel good about myself as a Man.

A box of dark chocolate would have been nice, also :)

Deadmans calender...wet paint, loved those lines. And the fact that it ends in a simple thank you is pretty refreshing. Loved it.
