In the Silences

There is no pain we would so endure alone:
O, wounded soul,
open your heart where you will find me.
Let your wound be my wound

for I have carried death already in my body.
Close your eyes and feel me close
in this darkness: I am here
just as you are, softly and warmly,

loving your sorrow as my own. Brace me here
next to your chest, where your breath
is my breath.
Through tears and through death,

we’ll carry through, together.
Out of this dark
something beautiful is about to be born.
And for sure, my love, it will outlive us.

Bright Sunshine

Bright sunshine,
that’s what you are to me.
You are truth in the flame
and gold in the light.
There is nothing you speak
that does not illumine me.
With you I remember
the whole of I am; you are
like me. If only you like me too.

To Desire

For now, I care not for what I love.
I know I love everything; there isn’t
anything that is separate from me.
But to desire, ah, to desire is magic.

It draws me to someone, so intimately
our thoughts affect each other.
We meld in spirit and there is no telling
where he begins and I end.

All I know is the moment I set eyes
on him, he was already mine.
My heart feels it and sings it
and writes it out to reach him there.

Sunset Glow

A gold flame
pours across my skin
as I bask

in the language of the sun.
Your love surrounds me
like sunlight

and fills all throughout my days.
These are the days
that I dance

to the rise and fall of your fire.
My soul glows
from your stolen glances

and I burn
as I reach for you
in the madness of my falling.

Together let’s run away
to the horizon, where the sunset
never ends.

Not A Word Away

As the moon rises over the bay
my hair falls by your face
and I smile just looking at you,
whole as I am and whole
as you are. Together, the distance
between you and me
is not continents away
nor oceans away. Not a word
away, not silence. But a heartbeat.
