Unfolding

I wake dizzy in the eyelid of morning
where you have spent the night in orbit
around my dreams
like I am the sun and you are my world
 
my lashes flutter into early light
and you
are the smile I see
and we kiss
your exhale enters my inhale
and it's in that moment I remember
we can survive this way through anything
like the deepest ocean  
or farthest galaxy
 
we rise with the birds
and sip our venti
white chocolate mocha's
and talk about the roots of our love
 
how we'd spent hours
as we poured our thoughts  
secrets
souls into a glass  
and sipped on them slow through a straw  
like we were on vacation
 
candles lit as we
bathed for hours  
in our memories and dreams
we never before had the guts to share with anyone
 
best friends
 
then as if cupid knew his arrow wouldn't be big enough
he shot a missile full of candy hearts
into our chests
the blast sent us ten feet above cumulus clouds  
where no one  
could rain on our parade
 
pterodactyls flapped their wings inside my stomach
as this new feeling I was not searching for immersed
then
you admitted your love  
and I admitted mine
 
and we learned  
we are more than everything  
and nothing  
we have ever waited for
