You are
steel trap limbs,
spring loaded
with my fingers caught
between your bones,
with my soul --
undulating smoke
in your
glass bottle chest;
you breathe
and I stir.

Silently
our shadows have conspired,
Rorschach lips
drawing nearer still,
twin ghosts of ink
waiting to dance
as a single silhouette
against the burning,
white stage-light moonrise.

I ache,
to know the sensation
of your hair
against my neck,
of your eyes
ascending my spine,
of your hips
tangling with mine
until our skin burns red
and our lungs
transmit breath
only
in the shape
of each others names.

Desire knows nothing
of my need...

Take me,
bend me at your will
so long
as my shape may fit
within the curving crescent
of your sleeping body,
of your beating heart,
of your
perfect, pink kiss.

You are
a flightless angel
of weary wings,
but you know
that a heart
drumming with love
cannot be caged,
a soul
once introduced to its mate,
can never
be locked down,
shackled or chained...

Love
makes picks of fingers,
files of teeth
and guides the heart
to where
it desperately longs to be,
to where
it yearns to go
only to discover
that you already know the way.

Struck me as 2 people yearning to be with one another and even millimeters between them is too far apart.

'glass bottle chest'

that's a ridiculously beautiful line! I've come to see you have many beautifully written lines in here :)

I love your use of imagery. It makes the literature almost tangible, which is ridiculously lovely.

This is wonderfully done, thank you for such a lovely read!
