Free Verse # 155 (in the silence of my heart, you dwell)

As night sat in
I burned all my poems
on the altar of our love
then mixed them with my tears
and rubbed them into your body
claiming you, mine.

~

Through secret ways
our souls speak,
like the sun with the dawn flowers,
the moon with the singing waves.

~

On what wings must I rise
to flutter between the stars?
A butterfly suckling their fiery nectar,
the dust of its wings covering the nightsky.

~

One by one
let me press my poems
through your navel ~
drink them like watery moans
from your mouth.

~

I can imagine that the moon is the sacred well at which all the stars come to replenish themselves and drink—your womb being the moon.

~

My chest is a nocturnal gateway
through which fiery birds fly
reaching for the stars.

~

On your collarbones ~ I hew my poetry.

~

In affective disarray,
a red leaf swaying in autumn’s palm
flown from ecstasy to ecstasy.

~

This star I set in your palm,
bid it to melt into your blood
and through your veins stream and whisper
– poetry…

~

My kiss ~
a volcano of lust
sweeping through your being,
raging at your core.

~

Blending our tears
we mark our kingdom’s boundaries,
a place where the sun never sets,
where our limbs unfurl their madness
and dance, one…

~

My kisses,
dispersed over your body
like clouds in the sky of dawn
weeping silently.

~

Wielding the sun
at the tip of my lips
I sink into your body.

~

Home ~
where the sun and moon
play inside our kiss.

~

In the silence of the heart
you whisper to me,
a morning star
in the sky of dawn.

~

In the silence of the heart,
in the secret realm
within the soul, you dwell,
a wordless thought,
a jubilant wave,
a breaking dawn.
