Free Verse # 166 (commanded by your eyes)

I search for you inside of me
as the night searches
for his own reflection
between the fallen stars

~

…where her naked foot touched the earth, a dawn sprouted.

~

You be the fiery abyss
into which I throw my heart.
Consume it into ash and dust.
From my deepest depth,
bind me, into you.

~

When night dances on your lips
stars bud in my mouth
and fill with the infinite ache
to return and be submerged
in the womb that gave them birth

~

My poems gather
like a pack of wolves,
my heart, the alpha male,
commanded by your eyes.

~

You happened in my heart
as the dew soaks at dawn
the skin of the earth,
silently, invisibly,
without intent or thought.

~

There’s nothing left
for you to occupy,
you are the perfect circle
inside of which
the formless takes form,
dies and is reborn.

~

Promised land?
Your body
stretching under me
as a sea of milk and stars.

~

Two lightning bolts meeting in mid-air, our kiss.

~

The sea of absence
A heaving desert,
Its scorching dunes
violent waves breaking
Against our tender bodies,
Etching love’s burning fragrance
Into our weeping skin.
