Tonight I feel the kiss of a cold breeze in place of your lips; with it a whisper from your heart telling me to be still. For not a heartbeat more, I will find you before me to hold me close again, and all the hours I spent waiting would be but specks of dust trickling away with the space that kept us apart for much too long.
And every trace of loneliness would melt away with the layers of particles that I would brush off your body with my tongue. The tears that hardened into stones inside your heart would burst into a thousand colored lights as other parts of you kindle at my touch.
Slowly the world’s endless spinning would pause at the first breath you take as I inch into the doorway of your soul. A dimension alive with wild roses where we’d lie under cherry trees exchanging kisses we’ve saved until all the stars and the planets are right again.
Until All the Stars and the Planets Are Right Again June 19, 2022
Far more than enough, far more than I deserve, far more than you can, you make my life and this world far more than things to endure. Instead life is one to love; instead the world is one to see and belong, not the cross they were for one to bear.
Far more than you know, far more than it shows, far more than I say, your touch can change a sad day to one where tears are at bay. And the present is far less cruel, the past is far less frightful; the future far less obscure.
Far more than the magic you bring, far more than the songs you make me sing, far more than the good in all you do, you make me want to be better, too. For my heart is far more than glad that of all the ones I could have loved, I’ve chosen you; a love I’m grateful to be true.
It feels like night again when I can’t reach for your hand beside me in the dark or feel your body against mine as the cold artificial wind blows while I try to enter the world of dreams where I hope to hear your laughter as we wade through the water, sand beneath our feet as we did under the warmth of the sun a few orbits ago.
Already it feels like the weeks ahead would drone on like sticky sand in an hourglass; minutes passing like hours, each containing the intricate details of every kiss, every touch, every look we exchanged for a heartbeat in our little paradise until I see you again.
Moments though brief, forever woven in the fabric interlaced in both our lives now. And the night sky gleams silver-blue with hope; look how the stars shine, telling you how much I need you in my life. Thank you for being in it.
