A Poem: Untitled
Last night while making love
I asked you to promise me that we could do this forever.
It was easy for you to say between deep kisses
Kisses as deep as my love for you.
With your promise I'm carried away
Hands clinging, heart exploding
Pulling you closer, but there's no more space between us left to fill
What happens to the hands of time
when our hands are entwined
What happened to this room?
I think we've gone too far--
too far forward, too far back
Because when I look to the future
you're all I can see
And when I look to our past lives
I can hear you making the same promise to me;
Whispered over again between time and back again
I think of all the ways I've readied my Self for You
It's only You
I promise You
And I promise, too
It's forever You.
