Free Verse # 130 (the kiss)

The musk of my heart, I burn,
weaving its incense
into the sweetest prayers,
drifting like tears,
calling to your absence.

~

As we kiss,
the stars of night,
swirling in your hair,
turn dizzy and fall,
clusters at a time,
onto earth’s dreaming face.

~

As you sleep
I contemplate you,
my eyes intoning a melting prayer
enveloping your body with a wetness so deep,
soaking you in love
all the way to your heartbeats.

~

Dawn on my lips,
a prayer swaying skywards,
bathing in your light.

~

Uncovering your original face ~
flowers breathing your fragrance, melt,
the sun, caught in your light,
turns moon and sings your praise.

~

I sway over you,
a moon over the sea,
and your waters froth and churn,
drawn into my being,
core rippling with ecstasy.

~

Surrendering to night’s kiss,
a breath of stars slithers through our ribs
into our deepest being,
unlocking the well of dawn.

~

Speechless,
night’s electric tide welding skin to skin,
ebbing as dawn’s fresh breeze
awakens a new heart.

~

With each loss my heart tore a little,
until my “I” drowned in the ocean of your love.

~

I dip my finger in the sun
then pass it over your lips,
rub the fire in, slowly,
before letting my lips feast
on the fountain of your lust.

~

Your love’s eagle swept me off my feet
and flew me to its nest,
perched on a branch
somewhere inside your sun.

~

When your face comes close to mine
I feel it burning like a sun,
and a tremor pulses through my chest
as I ache for our cheeks to melt as one.

~

O Beloved,
spare me your mercy.
This heart you hold
in your rough hands
like a cluster of red grapes
must be smashed into wine.

~

To place my lips against yours
is to gather all the universe’s stars
inside one burning sun.

The kiss…

~

Moaning at the scent of her warm flesh,
The sea, waves tossing and turning,
Churning with a longing so old
To engulf a daughter once lost amid men.
