In the night you stole my peace my calm you became the breath.
The light in the night my shadow the sweetest epiphany.
The taste my nectar you joined me rested your soul between my lips.
Held me steadfast in your arms you surrendered your heart to another.
The ashes are all I am left to receive I sifted through.
I watched those eyes cry I stood silent next to you and shared your suffering.
We became one two leaves you etched your name in my being.
I gave what I could now we are lost in expectation want need.
I desire the way you feel touches between us so sultry so honest.
I pray I rage I watch your slumber as I was meant to do.
I become the letter your heart wants to write.
Your pen is my truth I bend you yield unwittingly.
We arrive at the same point and still the question.
You do know me you see me into me like night vision.
Waves overcome the clouds and still we both secretly want the same thing.
Dare I ask.
Would that I was embolden enough I should scream that love lives with you.
In the sound of your voice in your shared mental exercises.
In the way that you touch the heart.
Many are fearful of the consequences of love when it is unconditional.
Which is how it should be and open package of beauty and light.
I don’t want your love for I have claimed it already.
When you can SEE the wind you will understand that what is to be will be.
Even if I am not the one to share that special place in your heart.
Know that I am there without pretense or expectation of change.
As I see you in pieces of dreams.
