A Love Letter

Alone and lying in the silent dark

I feel you rising within me.

I hear you in my heartbeats

And on my breath,

Swelling in my chest like a sustained cello.

My body aches with pleasure

As the notes and slow vibrations

Shake loose my moorings.

I am adrift

Without rudder

But you are everywhere

So I am not afraid.

Stay with me, My Love.

Please let me lick this salt water

From your sweet skin.

When my diligent tongue ceases

I will start again with your crown

With kisses and whispered words.

Sleep with me tonight.

Dream with me tonight.

Let’s stop fighting the distance

With an embrace entwined

So as to never be parted.

I wish to wake in your arms.
