lips grazing as
through our existence,
time momentarily pausing.
As light consumes dark,
dark consumes light.
Souls dance in wonder,
entwining their essence…
this is not the moment in time
when I will know your love
at a depth unknown to others.
This is not the memory I will recall
every time I search my mind
for our beginning.
I will swim past,
delve deeper into the darkness,
Walk the un-trodden path of my mind
follow the lost scent of pain,
I will find the moment that defined our love,
there in a shroud my broken pieces
cocooned by your being.
Rationality departed, etched motives,
my soul shattered, shards of bloodied spirit
spill monumentally across pristine reality,
the chaotic remnants.
Intensity overload as I break
There you are
lips grazing mine
fingers upon my face,
hand in my hair,
eyes watching me,
no words spoken
filled with fear,
filled with love.
Lips grazing as you reach through the shards
of shattered crystal, love rising
not the fluttering wings of butterflies,
but the sudden rise of knowing beyond all realities,
this is the kiss that will define the moment
I knew what it was to be loved by you.
