Poem Poetry: Where did we go?

Poem Poetry: Where did we go?

No, it’s not often we lie wrapped in one another

Hearts beating fast & fantastic flashes lighting up our eyes

We breath low slow gulps of reality,

You return, I retrieve my individuality

From out there amongst the planets

We flew high we come back deep

Looking bewildered

The beauty of the moment pulls back like tide across the heaving ocean

Wavelets of love light spring glittering silver

Lighting this halo of momentary magic around your face

My body waits now pearled in beads

My mind though, a float, a-sail on that distant sea

Calls Athena to take us back,

Reunite us in the passion from whence we came

That place is barren now without this love

Without this line of letters

To capture it, warm and gentle with thy hand

It’s not often we lie spread eagled

Pinned to life by Cupid’s arrows

Crying, not from pain but from joy, from feeling

Overwhelmed that this could go so deep, so far

So excruciatingly

close to nirvana

These are those moments

Moments which define life, as this moves in me

As this moves with you too

We return

Yet we arrive

with something new

To keep close, to keep clear , to keep safe.
