the most vibrant hues tremble at the explosions of beauty that blur my sight when your body is on mine and i am all at once convinced that all i need to survive is your touch your love and the stars you throw into my sky
my chest is no longer a chest but a cage which my deepest of feelings find themselves trapped with rugged locks offering the glint of freedom
they swell from deep within their waves lapping against the iron bars screaming into the darkness begging to be heard through their piercing of my silence
but who is around to translate their cries? who might speak the world’s language well enough to decipher the mystic codes in which my soul communicates?
these words will never escape their holding cell and will never reach the surface water will forever seep into their lungs and their cries will become gurgles under the unforgiving pressure of the tides
no matter how far down i swim to their rescue or countless rings of keys i try my tortured words will never reach their page or escape the deadly prison of my mind
now, i’m no physicist but i believe the powers of gravity to lay far beyond the tides of the ocean and the pulls of the moon
if gravity in all its mighty magnetism chooses only to pull the earth how might one explain the karmatic lure that graces our love?
through the roughest of splits leaving the most jagged of edges scars ripped through perfection forever shattered by broken words
despite endless attempts at resolution and countless finales to our grand tale we always found our tears to be recurringly interrupted by the rustle of curtains being drawn open for an encore of what was presumed to be lost
who has drawn these continuously? consistently hoping in the face of doubt to whom might i extend thanks for becoming the self-appointed stagehand of our love?
why, it can be none other than the beloved universe that intertwined us from formation expending the very magic used to bind us to tear away our blindness and once again as if on cue reunite us
there’s an imaginary world i wish to suspend our love in a world where time can be frozen and moments hung in the air that surrounds all at our discretion a world where i never have to leave because i never arrived we were formed in that second together sheets pulled tight but you held tighter intertwined bodies destinies facing the world not around us but in front of my eyes loving you eternally a moment on pause
