you educate my heart on
how to extend the boundaries
of love and intimacy.
the jubilant rhythm
of our synchronized heartbeats
showers every corner of the universe
with precious understanding,
that rarest gift that only true love can offer up.
Your breathtaking intelligence
and riotous spirit rise like binary suns,
flooding the verdant planet of my mind
with life-sustaining sunshine.
For without you,
I am left to struggle
in the cascading inadequacy of darkness.
The piercing epiphany
of our unscripted heart-dance
shall never diminish in size
nor fade in intensity.
each day of our lives
will feel like a single step
in the greatest performance
the universe has ever seen.
Defying all logic,
our already infinite adoration
for each other will steadily expand
like voracious foliage reclaiming
a blackened forest floor:
the naked carbon of regeneration
blazing in our tidally locked eyes.
Entire universes shall erupt from each caress,
as novel laws of nature burst into being
to the sounds of our furious and delicate love-making.
And we begin to let go of the fears
that have always held us back
from being the uncontaminated versions of ourselves
that exist in our cores.
Before the masks we wear came out,
before we filtered away our natural boisterousness
in an effort to hide away the children of our hearts
there was only the desire to run free
across the landscapes of our minds,
to dance triumphantly in the vivacious wildflowers
that bloom from beneath our unheavy footsteps
like the giant swirl of Jupiter’s greatest storm.
The intoxicating brew of our savage kiss
is a study in audaciousness,
an epic placard of honesty that says loudly:
we are here,
hand in hand,
stepping across the universe in supreme simultaneity,
ascending the resplendent staircase of transcendence,
two sentient beings boldly feasting upon the astonishing elixir of love’s intimacy.
your staggering waterfall of gorgeousness
surrounds my turbulent skies with the entire spectrum of light:
wavelengths of incalculable appreciation that always lift my spirit higher,
into the vast reaches of our mountainous stronghold of togetherness.
The multifaceted sculpture of love’s magnificence
that I erected in every corner of the cosmos
using only the ink from my crimson pen
and the volcanic lava of my insatiable desire:
how meager you have revealed it to be!
How small a dream,
which I thought was the size of the heavens,
until you burst all preconceptions of what is possible,
surpassing every single wish that I had thrust into the ether
and ostentatiously revealing so many more that I had failed to imagine at all.
These are not the final stanzas of a poem,
this is instead the beginning of a lifetime of poetry,
from the moment we wake in the morning,
to the instant we drift away to sleep.
Our love is an eternal sunrise,
incomprehensible to others,
a language of our own,
a kiss that never ends,
two hearts that have become one,
two minds that can never be separated.
I love you.
And saying so is woefully inadequate,
yet say it I will,
again and again,
