My Illumination

Your sly smile explains your knowledge;
nirvana creeps out of the slanted corners
of your lips. And they open so slightly,
releasing portions of enlightenment
carelessly and thoughtfully.
Your cosmic words awaken
the slumber of my soul,
flaming fervor throughout
my bones and veins.
Galaxies swirl in your murmurs,
infinite chaos expanding
with each whisper. The vastness
amazes me, as when I stand
on the edge of the cliff, staring down
the gaping precipice stoically
while my insides quake with the unknown.
Your eyes call to me,
voicing the celestial extent
of your mind. You say I am young and na've,
and wave away my desperate grasp.
I can only call you dazzling
and hold onto your slipping hand more urgently.

Amazing concept and great choice of words. I'd watch the spelling though.
