So Bright...So Beautiful...

- jan-u-wine


Close
we lie,

so close,

in the warm night.

No one will see,
no one
will come near.

Sweetly,
you  whisper……..

words meant
for me alone.

Only me…..

and you,

alone.

The heat of desiring you
runs
through my mind,
holds me,
to treacherous fire.

Dark and light
become
my waking dream,
shadows
drifting
like caresses
through the torment
of my thoughts.

Across the chasm
of  this need,
my hand
trembles,
dares
to touch
you.

You
are beautiful.

I want you:

how  much,
even I
did not
know.

I close my eyes,
and see
you still.

My breath
stops
inside  the circle
of this pitiable
desire.

Within my mind,
I run
free
over dark mountains
towards
the  endlessness
of the Sea.

My heart,
my mind,

my body
lie here,
silent,

bound

to you,

inhaling
the poison
of your

terrible beauty.

I will

not

say

I love
you.
