The Cascade of You

She’s like fire inside me
Anchored to the core of my own daylight

Forever unannounced by my heart’s
Recourse so that her presence is always a surprise.

Her senescence is revoked by the mists that
Cast a lovely spray of color across the bow

Of my Honesty thus I cannot approach her
Without the vulnerability of my soul exposed

So I inhale her every thread of empathy
As Sunlight dances to the smile of her gaze

Like her laughter that fills each breath I take the
Unguent jeopardy of my approaching arms

Cannot diminish the highlands of our oneness
The setting sun of our lovers embrace.
