Free Verse # 94

The sun,
setting over the horizon,
steals the world’s breath
hurling our eyes
into an ocean of stars.

~

O Love,
drown me into your ocean of fire
and leave not a single cell in my body
unmarked by your joy and pain.
Love,
I am your slave…

~

Your tear like the warmest of kisses
fell to my palm,
therein to grow forevermore,
a beautiful tree bearing love’s fruits,
in silence.

~

Unheard, silent,
the dew at dawn finds the earth
and covers her vales and hills,
as your smiles and tears
find my body in my sleep
and drape my curves, wet.

~

My every kiss, whisper, and touch
snuggle in your heart,
soaking through your porous, thirsty skin.

~

Let me find you
at the edge of the world
where love is a simple house
and a small garden
made just for us two.

~

In the garden of flames,
among the red roses
I found your wild heart.

The sun kissed my veins
as I took you in my palms,
sheltering you, in me.

~

An old soul, in an odd place…

~

Come,
find me in love’s broken shadow
where everything wounded
grows beautiful and strong.

~

I don’t want your tender kisses.
Let your eagle talons
sink into my arms and back,
and your cat-like teeth
bite at my neck.
Let your ravenous desire
feast on my flesh.

~

Known –
as the sun and moon
were born from one heart.

~

Ever since I met you
I turned astronomer
tracing the orbits of stars
revolving in the universe
of your eyes.

~

In the grace of my love
your breasts ripen like full moons
birthing oceans of light.

~

Us, a perfect circle
knowing neither beginning
nor end.

~

In the silence of the world
I whisper to your heart
and your heart sings back,
his song rising from mine
and bubbling on my lips
like the fountain of dawn.

~

I am love forged with its own fire

~

Love’s fire has eaten away my core
leaving me open and empty
like the sky at dawn.

~

O Love, do not deprive me of my sadness,
rather, let it sink deeper into me
and rise as pure joy.

~

What am I?
I am a reed swaying inside Your flow of music.
Who am I?
I am the nameless manifesting itself in Your ebb and flow.

~

Like the morning mist before the rising sun
my mind dissolves in your presence.

~

A thousand stars burn in my eyes.
The Beloved kisses my forehead
and the stars upon my cheeks weep
tracing a universe of love.

~

Those who say what love should or should not be are ignorant of love. Love is the master; we, His slaves. Only by yielding do we walk the way. Lovers have no idea where they are going or why for they already know that they are in the ocean’s heart.
