Come Lay in the Sky With Me

reach across this expanse
lace your fingers with mine;
I will breathe in
all of this darkness
from your frantic, labored lungs
and I will exhale sun showers  
on warm spring days
into your anguished spirit
let me kiss your worried brow
with the beauty of persisting;
rest your troubled head in my clouds
and just for a moment, find serenity;
lie back and dip your fingers
in the warmth of the world
as it burns unchecked below us;
the ashes will hold for tomorrow
sip drowsily of my daydreams
from cracked stone cups
carefully repaired with gilded clay;
here, where chaos does not stand
in the doorway, glaring
let my hands visit your slumped shoulders  
draping them in moonlight,
a cozy quilt on rainy autumn porches
come, lay in the sky with me
