Asset 5

the ideal state of us

May 10, 2020
If your breath is not caught up in mine as I inhale the surrounding air, and my hand does not in yours entwine when their idle swathes draw near, then love has not yoked us as I’d hoped; If your pulse does not at all times race thick with thrills and fulfillment, and my tongue…

    masterpiece
    May 1, 2020
    Like it or not, you are hung in this gallery, for a time stranded, to simply be. Brace yourself to overlook endless crowds, all who see unable to overlook your colours. They long to near you, feel the textures of your strokes, hold something of great value. See me stranded, watching you be. Since...

    mountain
    March 14, 2020
    My love towers above the earth from the ground up, solid and immovable, overlooking everyone but existing only for you. It was not formed by erosion, all else slowly worn away until only it remained, like Grand Canyon walls; nor was it built by hand, laboured over stone by stone according to deta...

    wish
    March 7, 2020
    Last night I held you in my dreams, and to my surprise there was no recoil, no sign to suggest I had wronged you. Your smile widened like a line of mercury rising, indicating the degree of your happiness. I watched over it closely, nursing you into a gentle fever.

    how wonderful the one
    November 23, 2019
    How inexplicable the thought that someone chose you, a speck in earth’s endless throng, to be their very favourite thing, the being they would die to be with over and over every other; How curious the cravings of another for your closeness, though you possess lumps of flesh of unremarkable topogr...

    the fifth chamber
    November 13, 2019
    I split your atom with my undivided attention, every knot caressed and pressed, the distress of every stress undressed until you wear a bare happiness of unbearable beauty, and it suits you. Do not be afraid. Let the energy racing from its blast trace its path, damage from the aftermath be damned...

    reservoir
    October 14, 2019
    I long sipped love from many cups, no drop left to drip or evaporate, just accumulate in me, bore water stored someplace dormant, unknown; Now it boils, steams through my pores at the sight of you, threatens to pour all over us at the slightest touch — a love so pure it burns.

    life force
    September 1, 2019
    You did not start my heartbeat, sweetheart. You did not give me life in any cold biological sense, as a mother does her child, but still you’ve somehow kept it running, stopped it stalling, stalled its stopping, I’m sure of it. You do not fill my bare lungs with air, honey. You do not draw…

    staying the inevitable doubt
    June 8, 2019
    I see light yonder in your eyes aglow like all desire and wonder if it reflects straight from a fire deep within your heart or from the glow of my own, begging questions to be asked of you, but I answer in your place and as I tend this task alone I brace against my…

    futile
    June 1, 2019
    My passion for you sits forever ready in my fingertips to discharge in an instant its static through our brushing hands, or surge thick like lightning when my arms arrest your body — How else can one explain away touches that stop hearts?
