in the darkness


in the darkness
of the heart
a beam of moonlight falls
illuminating the depths
like two lovers’ bodies
illuminated in their intimacy
by the light through the window

in this darkness
you call out my name
as if you know me
as deeply as one can be known

we come close
we touch
our breaths flow together
at times tense
at times tranquil

i bury my face in your heart
away from the pains of the world
i hear your heart beat
you keep me safe

the air is fragrant
time flows gently
and in our solitude
we are deeply alive
