Face to face and silver silence
Fills the spaces left between us.
In the mind our eyes will wander,
See therein love’s sweetest pleasure.
Nerves are bad – my tongue is frozen –
Still my heart is speaking volumes.
In our veins the blood grows warmer;
By degrees the sun gets nearer.
How can I make real what’s happened
There between us, in the dream world;
Lest we find a hidden moment
Just to slip within the ocean?
So, the truth– there’s no denying –
When I’m with you all is fading
To a pale, unfocused shadow,
Of itself, while you are shining
Like a star.
But I must hide this
thrill I feel
when you’re beside me.
When we meet I’ll give you kisses,
Brush each cheek in swift succession.
As my scent becomes your aura,
Both your arms could pull me closer.
Charismatic Rays just blind me,
Touch upon my racing heartbeat.
Hold me tight – I’ll melt in stages –
Sink into the sea of changes.
Now you know the slightest trigger
Might unleash a storm within me,
Bring us into new dimensions.
When we kissed I learned you simply
Make me whole.
Now I must wonder,
How can this be put asunder?
Maybe when the days have lengthened,
Reached a point – mid-summer’s evening –
We shall find ourselves reflected,
There – upon the bridge of twilight –
In the waters deep and tranquil,
Streams that mingle, once divided.
While I watch you speak my eyes fall
Down onto your mouth, as always;
Search your face and try to listen,
Try to stop myself from losing
I long to kiss you.
Both my lips are wet from wanting
You feel the nervous tension
And it makes you want to draw me
Upon your knee, quite slowly,
Smile and laugh to soothe the tempest.
Throw your arm around my centre,
Cast a whisper in my shell-like
And see the stars in my eyes;
See the way you rock me, world-wise.
Feel the way my thighs, relaxing,
Curve around your hips like liquid.
Then my arms uncoil, like vine leaves
Wind across your chest and shoulders.
As I breathe you feel me quiver –
Shake inside and out, get shivers –
Hairs on end are poised for action,
Secrets of this wild attraction
At last you see me.
Now you know the love flies freely.
No more ghosts -our worlds, dissembled –
Merge as one while we just tremble.
