Meld

When we walked together
We walked as one
I never felt accompanied
I felt enlarged

When we looked at things
We had two eyes
One mind interpreting
I saw things as I never had

Your hand in mine was my own hand
We never touched
We occupied one another
Molecules circling molecules

In the rain one day, I felt sad
You captured my eyes
And I saw what you saw
My sadness withered.

My mouth spoke silently to you
You never heard my all
My fault
My mistake irreparable

If memory is a treasure house
I own jewels and pearls
But memory is smoke
It fades and goes

Soul

The silvered fingers of night
Stroke your face
I see the moon in you
And the sun

As summer follows winter
Winter comes
I taste the ice in you
And the fire

One note rings out over all
My soul sings
Molecules merge in time
Skin in skin

My eyes open in new light
I see you
The bright colours of you
In darkness

Your need is my need for you
No other
My heart reaches to yours
Surrender

Tomorrow is tomorrow
Now is now
I’ll wait till my last breath
Asking you.
