Possession (for K)


You are mine

You are mine and I am yours

And together we are... what?

Something more than the sum of us

A spirit moving through the tall grass

A shadow cast on the longest day

growing and shrinking with the sun

moving across the sky

And I am yours

I am yours and you are mine

Filling the shallow husk of me

Touching the secret places

In the diminished light of the evening

Pale smooth and cool

You reach into me and caress me

Holding tight the lonely core

made whole by your lips

You are mine

You are mine and I am yours

A gentle finger moving along your inner thigh

A promise whispered into your ear

My breath on your neck

Saying your name in the final moment

Living forever as we again become one

I am yours

I am yours and you are mine

And we are together

Something more

The sweet promise of the little death

Lasting forever in the passing seconds

cradled between us

In the immeasurable spaces

You are mine

You are mine and I am yours

And together we are...

We are one

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
