In The Melody

Veiled in the mysteries of light
black cutting off the white
unmasked in the cotillion

of life

no debutanted call
you said left, I was right
patience holding close
an eerie songless night

but the melody played for hours
in the breeze, the gentle tease
and the tide
washing upon the night
in wrinkled sheets
you the nun, I the knight
if only for tonight

I will be with you
in grave and in height
stripping of the shroud
soaring up the stares
abreast
undressed

spotted eyes owl in wonder
halos glow at midnight
transfixed, we merge
and emerge

breathing/gasping/grasping
chocked but contented
fully fulfilled
as air fills your lungs

gorgeous as that may be
