Awakened by your most profound skin
I touch the dents so delicate
In their undulating roundness Floating through time and space On a cloud of bluest laurel Your hips rise And then fall Rise And then fall Moaning soft and deep Until a tullamore dew Weeps From the eye of an angel Trapped longingly in a Heaven’s embrace.
Witness to some major crime
I plead my case
I fled the scene
I left no word
I ran like hell
Only to have circled back
As time would tell
As fate foresaw
As trumpets blared
At the shopping mall
To the scene I’d left before
To my heart that lay there, bleeding
To my shock that all my pleading
Laying twisted as I’d left it
Unreconciled and apopelectic…
..thus convicted I stood there, staring Feeling shame for never caring How it looked When I said, “I love you.”
A thousand times I plead my case
Mind as open as my hand
Only to watch it
Slide down my own pants
One more time
One last time
Of a world not to your taste
Because it was always a fragrance
And a simple twist of your head
A turning of your cheek
Was more than you could bear.
Tie me a knot inside the darkness, Love
To make me feel the light of your face before me
To my loneliness I would sacrifice nothing
Because of your face I place in space removed.
Take me to the edge of Nothing, Dear
Sing to me the siren songs of bliss
In non-judgment stands my nakedness revealed
Palms outstretched to catch
the lightning of your smile.
Perfection’s loss was but our gain
Tumbling asunder to thunder as we fall
Rising high from deep within the night
A dawn does break in shards the shadows on my wall.
Can I see you now, your mass retained
Floating effortless in lavender and in silk
A dream I fear draws ever near
As color from the morning sets your eyes ablaze.
For it is not my eyes that think, nor my mind that sees
That prophets trouble from a distant shore
But a mouth that moves and a tongue unleashed
Cutting heartbeats from their guilded cage, unmoved.
Remind me thrice, my Love, the reasons why
You cry out to me from Darkness’ edge
A cipher cloaked in simple dreams
Twice forgets the light and the face that moves him to the Dawn.
