Between the white unturned
With inked fingers
each line and timid
following brightly every
motion Noiseless moving
new words in slow slow
in hidden consent
of unspoken ideas
learning words and concentrating
hair pulled back
out expressions amidst the echoes of
dimmed late night library lights Captured
beneath the bookshelves
Dancing in the scattered moonlight.
Moving lightly: barefoot through the scattered salty spray,
feet sinking slightly into the soft golden beach.
The moonlit darkness.
The sand grinding gently beneath the relentless waves;
adding its own timbre to the curling crashing water that noisily
and steadily drums out the rhythm of our souls.
i wonder: powerless.
We chase each other, splashing.
No words: no verbose interludes sound across the seashore to slow us down.
You turn abruptly, pulling me to you.
The kiss: steady, firm, and thorough as the thrum of the ocean.
Our lives are unexpectedly caught in the reflected moon, playing and
twirling in your open eyes.
Let the tide skip in and out.
Let the water cover up our swollen footsteps.
Let our names be forgotten with the cool night breeze.
Let this moment:
the fire of your passionate lips,
the whisper of hair across your hot cheek,
your eyes ablaze with desire
focused so entirely;
let this moment still the past,
let this moment halt the future,
make this moment exist forever.
Embraced, we fall delicately, deliberately, into the chaotic mixture of sand and sea
Entangled hearts in the scattered moonlight
scream -- hush colored bright hues
emblushens your cheeks
opens like a tiffany lamp until
daylight has sheathed his pastel streams
gently deep within your consenting belly
i dreamed of you last night
the flow of honey from these evening streetlights
(or rocks that come from trees)
wind tickling the edges
of skirted breeze
whispering into the moonwash
soft monochrome memories
a dream of you in black and white
stills this picture in charcoal silhouettes
crying out with pleasure in dark paired oubliettes
her slowest rhythm patiently explodes with the dawn
we found gold four
the ides of march
in the wildflowers
