With insatiable desire I sought you,
a dewdrop seeking the endless sea
wherein its boundaries would fade
and merge with eternity.
Your kiss sets loose a river of stars under my skin
and each winged word of light
oozing through my pores
sings a hymn to eternity.
She was the sea which called his soul to flutter over her endless waves.
Under your star
my heart waxes and wanes,
and all the poems it utters
it rubs at your feet,
curls into your radiant hair.
Whatever love touches love makes hallow.
His kiss within her heart,
a fire fiercer than the flames of hell,
more salutary than heaven’s finest wine.
