Free Verse # 364 (to infinity)

Embracing all night
at dawn we rose
and left the bed unmade,
a disheveled poem
trembling with fire,
a cup into the mouth of day
overflowing
with dew and stars.

~

I wanted to tell you
I wanted to touch you
but I didn’t know how,
so I fumbled and wrote you
poetry…

~

Dark eyed woman
barefoot travel back
through the fields of my past,
with each footstep blossom
a forgotten memory.

~

You whom I was born
to touch and touch
until life became nothing more
than earth and dust

~

The river moves on
and I alone stay,
a star lulled to silence
on the breast of the night.

~

Tongue against tongue
in erotica conversing,
the fragrance of our lust nailing us
to the burning cross of the night.

~

Come, lover,
with the sway of your hips
show me the power of your sea;
dare me to become the ship
sailing your waters to infinity.
