I’ve plunged headlong into you
On the longest note of music
I sing your smile, your stunning
Crescendo of all that you Are and I am
Fraught with the tempo of your eyes,
As I embark on one more sequence of your laughter –
Even as I utter the smallest notes of your look my way.
I am lifted towards you in every adagio
Of your soft skin your eyes of limitless aria

And take shelter inside the quiet
Of every phrase of
your shoulders
your breasts
your every fold of you
Like honey across an endless ocean
Of your song, a canticle, undone, in every way.
