Your stare pours sunshine into me
as a long-awaited rush
connects our heres and nows.

I want to be blood
to irrigate your cells,
and feed delusional eternities
through fleeting flesh.

Now feel us shuddering in unison --
I'm bound to you by warmth;
within you I'm made whole.

And consciousness hums
so deafeningly;

from pulse
to pulse
it echoes --

red as wake.

Thank you

Tonight's heartbeat
is as joyful as
the intermittent glow
of fireflies:

it plays a frantic game
of hide and seek
with love-filled stares;
it mimics seconds, and

the song of our steps
being poured into
the taste buds
of the earth.
