She laid on her bed.
Fresh from her shower.
Thinking of him.
It was an unexpected encounter.
WHILE I BREATHE
Stay with me,
While I breathe this secret,
Here, between the garments of this
Vibrant, invisible trance.
Linger with me, slowly—
I feel your heated prayers
Pet the erotic rhythms of my heartbeat.
What soft fever
Warms the red on your lips to kiss me
From across the room?
While I breathe this magnetic air of meditation,
Awake and falling
In this fleeting gift of Chance,
Stay silent with me while I write
Poetic inscriptions upon the air
In this spell.
I am captured within your stare.
I ask of Paradise, “Oh, my Sweet Lord,
What comfortable haunting of
Seduces my soul
Within Love’s devotionals.”
As I breathe with you, this erotic breath—
Between us, as we meet.
