Sometimes

I want to write an ode,

To your steel blue eyes

Those clear spots of calm

In an ocean storm.

Azure as the sky

Tender as a flower

Those gorgeous orbs

Take my breath away.

Open them, my love,

Gaze at me as you do,

Drown me in their depths,

Hold me in their embrace,

As long as this moment lasts.

Flying with a star

A star watches me, day in and day out

Keenly measuring my thoughts

My desires and emotions…

When it speaks to me,

It speaks of a past

It speaks of a future,

So fantastic,

So irreversibly intertwined,

It speaks of all that I could be,

If I were free of my shell.

 

“I’ll show you the Universe

On a scale you’ve never seen,

I’ll take you past several moons,

Past a hundred earths so blue,

Past yellow suns so new…

Come, ride with me,

Let’s scatter your atoms

All through the cosmos,

You’ll be moonlight and stardust

You’ll be the start and end of all.

Come, dive into my primordial soup,

Into scorching plasma and soothing winds

Melt your thoughts away one by one

Until all that is left is you, pure and simple.”
