We were intensity,
the burning embers of passion
traversing the corridors of time.
We were love.
Whispered on a Jasmine breeze
and devoured upon the tuberose.
We were the days we never knew
were falling grains of sand,
we were a lifetime in the seconds
between the beats of our heart.
divided between two bodies
we were the epitome of existence,
my fires raged on your command,
as yours calmed upon my whisper.
One voice spoken in a million tongues…
Yet so often we spoke without words.
You were the wisdom I was the chaos,
you were the wild and I was the calm.
God, how we devoured one another,
pushing and pulling our love,
forcing sight upon our souls…
You were the cleanser I was the healer,
we were love.
From the torn edges of celestial
skies we were flames in unite…
And now you are gone,
and now I am here,
even life couldn’t keep us apart,
but now my dear soul,
you are my guiding star.
Living eternal life within my heart.
