your existence sparks my heart
i ache for your embrace, the way we slid into nothingness
silence except for my shivering, the cold biting through my coat
you leaned over, speaking
then you stopped talking and i stopped listening,
you were curled over me, then you pulled me onto you as we breathed and i followed your lead, my fingers curved onto your chest, the memory eludes me, hazy at best
i remember your lips
and your teeth, and your breath
i wish i could feel it again and again
but memories will have to do until we are both
healed and ready
I was sitting among many
You pulled me up to dance
And I laughed and let the faces slide past
You drew me near and kissed my head
And I gasped, looked away
And hid my heart;
Perfection cannot thrive here
And shadows still will dance
So I will breathe in the good and bad
And let the mixture be romance.
Do not wonder if the stars are true
Or if my heart is yet to leave
I will not wander away from you
Unless you first let go of me.
Night-dark steals into your bed
And as the darkness grows
For you, my most beloved
I’ll stay until it goes.
Let not the shadows whisper
Or haunt your lovely dreams
I’ll chase off every shiver
And hold you close to me.
Black silk may come to taunt you
And steal away your rest
But I will sing as lovers do
Of how together we are blessed.
If ever I am not with you
When the stars covet your sleep
Dear one, sing this tune
My love, just think of me.
