If this,
were enough to
make you stop
a moment
steal your gaze
and still your eye,
resuscitate a soft
twinge that you
haven’t felt
in a while –
to hold you
in a spell, even
if it doesn’t remain,
or still your fleeting
thoughts a moment
and hold you close
again – if it were
enough to say,
that there are things
I cannot say
but you can hear them
all the same,
in simple words
and warmth,
in a hand held
for a second more
and left to lose its
way, a touch to
ignite the fire –
keep the flame.


In the darkness,
I strike a match to light you up
Slithering softly
Tendrils of smoke
Of your glistening body
Burning against mine,
This warm passion
Melting in my mouth
Scorching us
When we touch,
To break apart, leaving
Ashes of what once
Made us whole.
Stay with me tonight
Let us consume each other.
