Shir Poetry: Woosh [2005]

Wrap your arms around me,
Never let me go.
Touch my tummy lightly,
Kiss me nice and slow.

Whisper words of romance
Gently in my ear,
Tell me you'll protect me,
That there's nothing to fear.

Take me as your partner,
Your lover, and you're friend
And when I say I love you
I'll love you 'til the end.

Shir Poetry: Still

Apart from breathe.
Around me turns a world,
I am still.
locked forward,
bound in an empty gaze.
Because my eyes-

while clearly open,
cannot see.
Engulfed inside a sea of sounds once meant for notice-
I hear,
not one.
While the touch of flesh against my skin,
makes me whole,

and I am numbed.
So still I am,
I do not feel that I am not.

Slowly rising,
Slowly falling.
Fused into the space where I belong-
a perfect fit.
in this place,

like this.
