in that moment i saw it all so clearly,
when.. your lips caressed me softly in the
flickering light of the tv screen.

here we are, i thought.. and look at us glowing

white hot

and i don’t even mind your wandering hands.
sometimes i open my eyes just to see yours
serenely shut, what are you thinking of?

clouds? roses? me purely white and waiting?
i could have been there forever, you know

lying with my head upon your chest,
the sound of your heart putting me to sleep.

it is you, I know
that i thought of as a child,
wide-eyed and waiting for the world
to tear me to shreds
