This Exquisite Embrace

Embracing this soft subtle intoxication,
I shift

My heart swelling with emotion
and deaf tears

Curses spill off my lips,
sound like your name

There’s a rushing torrent
curling through me

I lift and expand myself,
exposed before you

Twist your tongue,
now drink deeply

You composed stars in my eyes,
I blink rapidly

So this is how the heavens
were created

  1. “So this is how the heavens were created”… yeah, I could feel the buildup all the way to the Big Bang. Beautifully written, and curses sounding like his name… hmmm… that paints an interesting image.
