You Taste Like Stardust
Breathe...in through the nose, out through the mouth....
How do you fill a soul emptied by love so chaotic, so beautiful, so intensely defined by the sweetness that encompasses all that is bright and beautiful in this world?
To let it go, the narrow line, defined and redefined over time, pulsing through fingertips that follow the heart's tears into oblivion...
Because that’s the river it flows upon, undone, wild and ravaged and torn,
And at the same time, it’s as essential as the air one breathes.
Try to replace it; replacements are lacking,
Try to remove it; you are lacking,
Try to flow with it; it will destroy you,
Try to deny it; it also destroys you.
Fingers travel up swollen lips, kisses long gone but dawn sees them on the horizon again,
Taking from one, to feed another bliss, another kiss, to destroy some fanciful daydream of a world without you in it;
Clenching inside, a desire so bright it could light fires in a thousand worlds...
But I must let go. How?
Naked, softened flesh, rolling upon the sheets,
Meeting daydreams with nightmares as hands travel down a colorful navel and further still,
Bring me back into oblivion, that final resting place where my mouth adores your skin, but my soul adores us more,
Bring me there, please, I need release.
Shuddering, shivering, quivering with lust as touch heightens all,
Falling from the known into the known, the trembling that ruptures like volcanic ash after an explosion rests between my thighs;
You, me, us....transcendent, beautiful, painful, love...and I concede;
For there is nothing in this world, like you and me. I’ve tried, it is lacking.
But I am love, and I am not lacking; The taste of your love, is the sweetest bitter I’ve ever known.
My whole, in a world full of pieces.
