Free Verse # 215 (inviolable)

Closed or open, you are all my eyes can see.

~

Desert harbor where a heart,
like a fruit in the sun,
shrivels from waiting.

~

With lightning for a needle
pierce into me, beloved,
and let my tears weep
into your sacred ground.

~

The vast language of the night enclosed between our merging bodies.

~

There are not enough flowers in the world to make a honey as fiery and abundant as your kiss.

~

…ah, but to kiss you, that is to have a beat in my heart.

~

This poem, a rose
Grown fervent in your dark hair,
Now bleeds burning wine.

~

I don’t care if what I write is beautiful or not—it is only meant to touch the hem of your dress; be worthy to gaze in your eyes’ purity.

~

Poetry is my way of dissimulating her presence.

~

Inviolable
in the solitude of her soul
she stood,
the wind combed
through her hair,
the world like an endless poem
stretched below her feet.

~

Open
I held my heart
like a cup before your sky;
it overflowed
and its waters filled the earth,
grew drunk
in the vision of your stars.

~

For me to burn I do not need to kiss you, or touch you, or think of you—you are the silence at my soul’s root, the emptiness that holds my being like a universe of stars.
