I am mastering the lines of my body
With the tips of my fingers
Let only love reside in you
Be well
A well so deep and perilous it reaches
your radiant smile
that warms me
and engulfs me in your memory
like a tidal wave
Be still
I want to remember the parts in between
those moments of sheer ecstasy
Be silent
Your cry for help sounds
like a nightingale at dusk
We can fly and float above
and reach beyond the crows
the common
