I drape my arm across your back
And pull you closer to me
To where you gaze at me
And I gaze at you
And there’s a world between
That our minds alone create

And as If one person, we crook our lips
And laugh in the still night
We make our escape from the rules of the game
To that place where joy can be found in
A hand
A lazy fingertip
A gently caressing mouth

Our bodies fit together perfectly
It is like we are two curves
Of wood or ocean waves
That curl into each other’s spirits
And lay down to sleep
In the exhausting beyond

And I do not know why
But each look is like a heady breath of air
And in that I seem to see a promise
Of lullabies and butterfly wings
Painted on a wall to draw us in

We are so different
Yet in you I see a kinship
I think I have been missing all my life
And as strange as it seems you seem to
Flow around my edges and fill in my holes
And make me more than I used to be
I take in the life you give me
While kissing me deep and I taste my own future
When I reach out to tussle your hair

And perhaps we are each other’s cure
To lives without
Perhaps we are the antidote to this
Venom that each day breeds within our bellies
And if we are I want to drink you in
I want to pull every part of you into myself
Until we are one body of light pulsing beyond the spheres
To where unseen stars look to find us
In the playing brightness of a streetlight
Where I cradle your head in my arms
