A longing within the deepest of skin

Flows like a heedless stream

For there we were, distant but sure

That all was like a waking dream


I gazed in eyes that analyzed

Processing what I contained

I left a gift within a rift

You flourished in what remained


How could it be that inside of me

A mystery is left to explore

‘Twas all unknown what I was shown

Yet could swear I have known before


Spiraling gently through passion you lent me

I am consumed by a fire

Heart in hand, here I stand

Frozen in the wake of desire


Casting a web in midnight ebb

Ensnared in a huntress’s trap

To be devoured, to be empowered

As the strings which hold me snap


Beyond the cells where beauty dwells

An intimate moment lingers

Suspended in air by thoughts we share

It settles upon my fingers


A kindling spark from a luminous park

I send my love to the moon

So that all may see my reverie

In the smile where I swoon


I rubbed my eyes in welcome surprise

And gave myself to the night

Floating through clouds, swimming through crowds

I sprouted wings in flight


Touched am I by immortal sky

Rouge embers in the dark

I shall enhance a minute’s chance

A chimerical moment in a park


Softly descending a moment’s ending

I release myself to the infinite

Always connected, by love directed

Always existing within it
