“Love Illicit”

-The first one I wrote to you, Anya, not even a week after knowing you. May you fly to freedom, in your time.

Your head nestled in the hollow of my neck
Inside our cave of satisfaction.
Contentment of a thousand wishes
Exploring the surface of my platitude.
The unknowingness removed
Leaving slivers of comfort for days.
You are so worthy
And are embedded in my flesh.
Skewered showers
Makes for an imperfect cleansing.
A baptism designed for the joining of our souls.

Unite these hearts
As the venom creeps within. Poison is unable to conquer love
But with blood inflamed, we liquify.
Vaporized and into the fray we go.
Untouchable in the fire
And our desire only grows.
We are fasting loneliness in these moments of rapture.
Immortal, we ascend
Til death envelopes the dust we are.

Those years we had on earth transcend.
Since our ascent, all is made new.
We are light years from the pain of separation.
No more moments fixed on failures
And with nothing to regret.
Swim with me through the cosmos.
We are floating galactic.
I breathe your air
And the sinews of my soul align in you.
We are here, touched by light.
Transfixed eternal.

You hold the key to my intoxication.
The idea of you remedies me whole.
Where others delivered death without passion, you erupt adoration for days.
I am sewn into the pocket of your kindness.
I am inside you as you reside amidst me.
Your secrets I imbibe while I drink from your naked waters.
Our love illicit radiates. Illuminates.
Where roads have lost the only way
I’m kneeling here with lips to your feet.
To serve.
To be among loves embrace.
