Free Verse # 267 (beyond the farthest star)

I kiss her
like the sea
rehearses his song
in endless endless waves.

~

Eyes closed he kissed her,
tenderly, religiously,
as though she were a river of mist
coursing through the night.

~

Night came
and dressed me
in the colours of a longing
for a face I’ve never seen
yet has always burned in me

~

Alone at night
Listening to the wind
Chiming a hymn
To a forgotten face,
The face we all
Shall one day be.

~

Passing through the sieve of love
his heart became a poem
whispering her name
beyond the farthest star

~

She entered him
and felt herself being engulfed
by an earth made of rain,
soaked full to her bones.

~

In a world made up
of words and clamour
you are the poem
which silence holds my soul

~

She watched him write
and, somehow,
felt the tip of his pen
move along her skin,
etching, bleeding, burning,
turning her into a poem
seared in the mist
of his endless longing,
scribing her in his heart
like a star in the fur of night.
