For time to stretch out like the tide
reaching through dimension and resurrection
slipping like silk against skin,
your touch delayed
then relayed with rapture
spiraling faster and faster
to burn your memory into my mind.
For dead suns to pull me into their horizons
rejoining the infinite and revenant
ending our estrangement by element,
your love unwithered
then delivered with wrath
God the path and aftermath
our penance paid with patience.
This poem smolders in the deepest chambers of my heart. In the places you can’t find on an anatomy chart, where the parts ache with longing without logic, nerve endings or reason. It speaks to the ethereal love only found on the other side.
