it’s you and me—
dancing on Saturn’s rings
making out in the pouring rain
you kiss me, melting your lips into mine like wax and honey
you consume me,
as i consume you
two dancing flames, two searching souls
thirsty only for each other
burning bright, but steady kerosene, never running out.
so follow me
to the hell depths of Pluto
dance with me in the mud and sh*t and terrible roughness that life can sometimes be
rise with me to the milky way mountaintops of euphoria
smile with me and ascend to sublime beauty,
to the pillowed, nectar mouth of heaven itself
and fall down with me, too—
catch me, as i’m catching you.
burn with me
learn with me
love with me
transform rapidly with me too,
let’s fly through the cosmos at a thousand f*cking miles an hour
as i weave my fingers through endless streams of stars, as you caress my hot cheek with poetry.
you are the only one who can keep up with me—
and you egg me on, accelerate me, challenge me, make me go faster—and slower—when i need to.
so walk with me to the aching edge of ecstasy
dance with me on the volcanic, throbbing pulse of molten screaming, scorching Mars,
run with me through spinning tornados, sh*t storms and the unimaginable beauty,
the unexpected quivering chaos of existence itself.
yes, darling, it’s safe to show me your shadows, scars, love and pain,
like colliding cell shooting star parts of you
rip yourself open
reveal it all—the treasure, the truth, the terror,
i want to taste all that you are.
i need you,
you are the only one brave enough to walk with me,
so let’s f*cking go, let’s step into this endless story
first stop: the spitting hot lava pages behind my eyes,
the mysteriously worded ruby oceans of your glimmering heart.
so sear into me with your unashamed gaze
make love to me like the sun is melting into the trees
but hotter than that
louder than that
gentler than that
merge with me, utterly unforgettably, completely
let’s become a poem
fused together by the permanent ink of all the right words.
so touch me like a soft mango lavender sunset, don’t miss any of my ever-shifting clouds,
see me as i change and grow and ripen, right in front of you.
open me, rip open my outer shell like a succulent in the Sahara desert
and let my aloe vera heart drip out,
by your hands,
as my heart drizzles yours
with the powerful truth
you and me.
