Very Far from Hell

Here let me hold your wrist
and let me kiss your veins
and rub my hand along your back
and blow away your strains
Would you like to see the stars tonight?
Instead of ceiling tile?
For rain to kiss your collar bone
you eyelids and your smile
the universe caught in your eyelashes
before you go back to bed
to be stolen away for just one night
i promise its not just in your head
See? you feel my fingertips
you know im really there
you really feel the running now
the wind current through your hair
Don’t go home to cotton sheets
Stay here forever, feling my skin
they talk of meloncholy eternity
not a world of light like the one we’re in
it’s real it’s real it’s real it’s real
if you can see and touch and smell
we’re far from a heaven you could ever dream up
but we are very far from hell

The way you started the poem intrigued me, then the way you carried the emotion to the very end- excited me.  I loved this, it made my morning.
