Loving You


Something sweet and romantic for a change. Gag. Kidding!!

Loving you is a Saturday
feeling and a Sunday stroll.
For you, the encrypted
become unencrypted.

You will never not love me,
even when our weekends turn into

Even when our photos
become monuments of us,
a still life of
sunlight and cedar,
the girl I was, abloom
in a field of beginnings.

Love that can’t hide
in a napkin, a coffee spill
or a blade of grass.

Liveable lives.

Serene seas and mountains,
and the artifacts of
a champagne flute,
periwinkle shirts
and promises.

The litter of swoon
and our once in a
lifetime constellation.

-Tosha Michelle

  1. Aw, so happy you stopped gagging long enough to pen this. You know me. This is one that i loved so much I read it twice. Wonderfully written. Two things really stood out for me. “You will never not love me,” Great line. Also loved you can’t hide love stanza.

      1. Tosha, I did have a great day. Hope you did, too. The sun came out at the end of the day, which was so pleasant — finally! And almost all snow melted! πŸ™‚

  2. I love this poem. Where the hell do you get these amazing pictures? Share the secret XD
    Oh yes these lines:

    Love that can’t hide
    in a napkin, a coffee spill
    or a blade of grass.” I just fell in love with them. So poignantly truthful.

  3. You never fail to give us your best, Tosha! A beautiful image, a glorious poem AND a song. I never appreciated Johnny Cash while he was alive. (My parents adored him; that’s probably why.) But the more I learn about him and his life and his music, the more I am led to believe he was a true Renascence man! πŸ˜‰ ❀
    Peace, love & music for all,
    Sherrie Miranda's historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel β€œSecrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador:
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:
