A poem for my Captain

Getting ready to publish my poems for the first time (and probably only time).  I wanted to share one with you.  I think you can guess by the title who it's about.  February 14 and you'll be able to own the whole collection.


I love it when your hair is crazy,
and you tell me I'm an angel.
When the air is clean in my lungs,
and your voice is soft in my ear.

don't be so dramatic,” you say.

then hold me,
until the drama subsides,

and I will be stronger come morning.
