I'm in a Crumbling Card House Of Paradise

Why Must You Heal me, My Dear Sense?

A dozen sweet smelling lovely layered roses, given by a sincere young man. A darkened dripping gray rain cloud roaring through the sky. The perfectly spoken rhythmical screeching intense musical harmony. A long awaited compassionate caring bear hug leaving no breath and a warm heart. The smartest busiest buzzing bee bargaining with the brightest blooming flower. The sweetest softest wettest lip-locking kiss, when words are absent from memory. The moistly freshest mind-numbing scent of the reminiscent day dreams in memory of one beautiful spring day. The loudest contagiously delighted laughter bursting from the shyest mouth. A comfortably cool breeze whispering among the swaying trees. A melodious apologetic understandingly deserved relaxing sleep spell after a day of worry and painful exhaustion. And a lucid vibrantly colored dream of the days to come.

I'm in a Crumbling Card House of Paradise Watching the walls move as my hope dissolves, and only my faith can mend the unstable card foundation.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this after 'taking a break' with my love. We had just gotten back together on this perfect day, and I was inspired. I thought it would be fun to sort of add adjectives as I went along. It was also my first poem to read at a coffee house. :)
