St. Paul, MN USA
The air tonight is crackling, alive
it's moist to the skin, imparting a sheen
but nothing compares to the glow inside
of what this place, this night,
may come to mean.
A miasma of longing settles into my core
playing tricks on my eyes, scattering thoughts
through my brain;
No sooner does sleep come and
and there it is, once more:
a vision of you standing out in the rain;
beckoning me softly
to come to you again.
For you have I come here;
for this reason alone--
Where we part, the night reigns,
Where we meet, I am home.
I have waited so long
that at length, I forget;
but I leave unto Heaven
my fear and regret.
Feelings new to this heart
Sublime, and yet, no;
they are thus set apart
and they ebb, and then flow.
I want no control,
I want to give in;
so strong, such desire,
so cleansed by this sin.
Which star I wished on blessed me?
for what reason do I know
this Heaven, clothed by you
in the hell of here, below?
Life continues on as normal;
quarks still dance in their subatomic spin;
sun rises, sets, the Dog Star shines
But the Man in the Moon now wears
I saw it last night, I'm not lying!-
So-- don't believe your eyes?
Just keep them wide open
as he begins his rise
and at dawn, when he sleeps,
he begins his demise,
but long nights, when forthcoming
you shall see his surprise.
How your kiss does envelope,
how your arms, do they hold;
how your spirit shines, breathless,
a hundred sighs thus unfold!
Such impetuous acts and
intoxicating, they spin in my head,
Fantasies break fast in these summer nights
and turn forever in their diamond bed.
Before, the heartless tender of my world
felt this soul moved with profound ire
Where once was pierced deep
by his rendering wound
There is now such redemption
in all colors of desire.
