Body worship

I want to worship your body.

To take it in my embrace and feel its warmth.

I want to share the fire in our skin

And the ocean in our heartbeats.

I want to taste every dream

Every fear

And kiss it all away.

I want to hear what’s hidden in your bones

And smell the shadows you hide in your heart.

And I want to love every part of it.

Eyes

Quiet and emotionless, yet your eyes tell a story. They’re full of everything you’ve ever felt, everything you’ve ever seen. Every lost love. You hold back the tears, for fear of losing those little treasures. Because what was once pain is now your silent agony. Holding on to broken memories, like shards of glass that cut and sting. You can’t let go, can’t feel the pain of what’s on the other side. You’re just a child, too afraid.

the earth breathes

the trees sway in the cold, cold breeze
and the raindrops pierce the the graceful wind
you stop for a moment and feel the earth
all around you, it seems to breathe.
the moon settles among the stars
that tickle the sky with sparkling light
the shadows cast upon the grass
and hidden light finds a place to stay
the earth cradles you in her arms
it’s beauty lulls you to a silent sleep
while the rivers run and the waters fall
and the earth rotates once more
sleep
