Image for the poem Adelphina


Upon my heart, a gentle tapping
of two lovebirds uncaged
Their wings overlapping

Beckoned forth, my desire's true
Have faith in that it beats for you
Surrounded in flutters, quickly centered
The hum of love so surely entered
to my ready heart, to grasp ahold
of these truths revealed, to unfold
In a song of joy, it's one of faith
that within this passion, it's love we make

Rise, my Adelphina
I see your love's a phoenix
You're etched from rainbows' every ribbon
You're the angel born for my religion

As you hold me, as night surrounds
As your wings blanket me all around
It is your heart, that inner song
That beats with mine, as pure and strong

In rapture's grasp, we vow no end
Chest to breast, to ascend
To Heaven's clouds that pillow our fall
and arise as one, we heed the call
to fall in love, falling higher
Rising above, in passion's fire
Beyond our bodies physical test
-Such a limited realm, we've left

This gentle murmur, upon my heart
Fluttering wings as we embark
on a journey together; Lovers eloping
As the songbird's cage is thrown open.
