For the last five nights I’ve had the same dream:
Our bodies, tangled, writhe in pure pleasure
and in each moment we whisper a scream
so silent with devotions quite measured
that we, you and I are forever one.
And, in that moment, we experience
beauty, love, hope, God and each other done
in such a miraculous indifference
that we see true light in our darkened world
and continue our tryst in a manner bold
and unflinching. I wish I can dream now.
I wish I can feel your soft skin somehow
or taste the tartness of your tingle kiss
upon the front of my awaiting soul
that yearn to be controlled and missed.
Getting back to there is my one day’s goal.
