Sucker Punched By Cupid

I have fallen in love
with purple skies
so wide above oceans
that split worlds


I have fallen in love
with mountains
and lakes
the vastness of terrain


I have fallen in love
with deserts
and canyons
the honesty of the sun


I have fallen in love
with old hotel rooms
and dirt parking lots
highways that meet the moon


I have fallen in love
with old brick mills
and their broken windows
of bitter glass
sinking below the interstate


I have fallen in love
with each star
tacked to the night
that I stare at with a smile


I have fallen in love
with all the songs
that you sing


and I have fallen in love
with you


and you
and you
and you
