Your breath rolls like the purest water through the humid air.
Eyes sharp, alert, staring head long into my own.
Our bodies entwined, our spirits aligned,
Ceasing to be one and another,
Instead simply being one,
And one alone.
Outstretched arms, your breath in mine.
Two minds racing, and meaning defined.
Submission to the simplest of rules,
To slip past that last inch, between you and I,
Escaping the fate that many wiser have surmised,
A love unexpressed shall wither and die.
The world breaks on it's predictable fault lines.
Oceans sent spraying like wasted silver into the canyons,
Sky melting into the crumbling footholds at the base of every mountain.
The stars above shifting this way and that.
The world renewed, the planets re-aligned.
Your embrace embraced, your hand in mine,
The sounds are simple, the cool air defined,
As we both retire, with a peaceful resign.
Me and a buddy made that last night.
