Cat Burglar

There is a picture of your mouth and it distracts me.

I am not sure what lies beneath

But this picture

Is soft and sweet and suggestive

It sends my mind to places

That I haven’t visited in years

Countries where the sun glances off of a blue Mediterranean sea

Countries where the mountains whisper with wildflowers smiling up at

An endless sky

Countries that hang so heavy-full with history

That each stone is like a painting in a museum.

This picture of you is like a thief

Your eyes tease me singing

That they just might know where all of my treasures are hidden.

This picture of you

Your eyes and your mouth

Breaks into my day and into my night

It steals my mind away.
