Walking With The Goddess
Thy presenceâ€” it is unbearable.
Thy beautyâ€” it is overwhelming.
Thy graceâ€” it is of the gods.
For by the gods you have been blessedâ€”
And blessed you areâ€” blessed to me.
For youâ€” you are the only reason I keep breathing.
Every time thy foot makes itself known into my houseâ€”
It graces my soul.
When mine eyes gaze upon thy fair, and flawless faceâ€”
I am taken away.
Taken awayâ€” into a different world.
This worldâ€” that you take me by the hand intoâ€”
It strikes me with a great awe.
In this world, our world, there is only youâ€” and only I.
We walkâ€” you and Iâ€” we walk with hands interlocked.
Our bare feet trod thru soft, and luscious grassesâ€”
The cold dew tickles us.
The sun in our world is bright, warm, and friendlyâ€”
For we make it that way.
But thru this world we go, deaf and blind to all surroundingsâ€”
Except for the sightâ€”
The sight in which we stare into each others love transfixed eyes.
Then, the grasses ceaseâ€” in our world.
Theyâ€” are no more.
Instead, in their place lies a trailâ€”
It leads up into the endless heavens.
Almost without thinkingâ€” we climb up thisâ€” heavenly staircase.
Beyond it, lies a bed of clouds.
We gaze into the others eyes, even the more intenselyâ€”
Thenâ€” we laugh.
Oh! We laugh with a most joyful, and abundant laughter!
It is almostâ€” childlike.
But, we do not care. For it is only you, and I.
Gentlyâ€” we fall among the white, and pure clouds.
We layâ€” together.
Thenâ€” you climb into my nervous, but waiting arms.
Your lips are only but a whispers length from mineâ€”
And, yet againâ€” our eyes meet, locked in a loving, but curious glance.
Our hearts, theyâ€” pound furious with excitement.
Then, we cannot linger any longer.
For all we have done, all we have been, all that we areâ€”
All of our beingâ€” has anticipated this moment eagerly.
Closer, we draw even closer.
Ourâ€” hot breathâ€” I can feel yours warming me.
Our eyesâ€” theyâ€” close.
Our lipsâ€” they meet.
At the meeting of them, I feelâ€”
A most strange, and almost undescribable experience.
My heart is a frenzyâ€” a legion of ecstasy is flowing thru me.
My headâ€” it spins.
It spinsâ€” most violently.
But yetâ€” I like it.
Soonâ€” the effect of our love takes it toll on me.
The meeting of our lipsâ€” I cannot time it.
Soonâ€” time does not matter to me as it passes.
All that matters to me,â€” is you.
Long minutes can pass!
For they do not matter to me.
I want to dwell with you in the clouds forever.
It is as you sense this!
You read my thoughts!
And you cease!
Our lipsâ€” they departâ€” much to myâ€” disgust.
You stand, and put out your slender hand for me to grasp.
We interlock hands again, your hand gives me reassuring comfort.
Dazedâ€” I ask you where we are going.
Youâ€” you crane thy lovely face to mine and say: “Eternity, my love.”
I smile at thisâ€” it is a big, hearty grin, full of joy.
You smile, seeing my joyâ€” thus revealing perfect, and flawless ivory.
We walkâ€” among the clouds.
Thenâ€” mine eyes catch sight ofâ€”
A new, and even more grand staircase.
This one, climbs even higher into heaven’s that are unknown to me.
We pauseâ€” at the very threshold of the staircase.
Thenâ€” I gaze into your warm eyes, they tell me that I make the right choice.
With one shaky step, you and I climb the fist step.
The first stepâ€” into Eternity.
