NUMEN

I reached out to touch you,
held in the night;
so far separated;
fingers stretching
to find you, I found petals
opening in your heart.

I reached out to hear you,
sunk in the night,
longing for your voice;
I heard you breathing,
rising and falling, warm heat,
your lips open to mine.

I reached out to be with you,
lost in the night,
a world away, my soul
beating faster for yours,
my heart calling louder
for yours;

adamantine fire,
the night’s ache,
the Moon
aflame in the sky.
