The Poems In You

Like a wildfire
Our souls linked hands
Each moment
Higher and higher
As twilight danced
Around us
All night long.

My fist gripped firm
My eyes squeezed shut
Resisting the squirm
Of billions
And billions of
Butterflies. In. Gut.

Your warmest of lights
Flooding over me
I found peace.
Your tenderness
Struck the wind out of me
I couldn’t breathe.

Gasping for my first breath
I inhaled yours
And exhaled love
And inhaled more.

Our eyes so dim
And hearts at rest
Converged within
A beating chest
A spark was one
Of billions among
The reasons why
I’m where you belong.

The poems in you
I’d close my eyes
Again
And again
And
Again
To Listen to.
