Moon Lotus


When we†made†the†bed†with†the†new†linens †
(Yes,†they†are†beautiful) †
the†red†of†them†hinted†to†us †
to†be†devils†in†a†searing†depth †
†  
But†the†moon†fought†for†your†skin †
as†I†slid†the†sheet†down†your†hip †
As†my†hand†spread†the†praise†of†that†pale†light †
down†your†ribs,†to†the†cove †
where†your†hip†bones†curve†forward †
†  
Where†my†mouth†opened,†in†that†shadow †
and whispered†of†what's†to†come; †
Springing†a†river,†for†your†lotus. †
†  
The†moon†has†side-stepped, †
reached†the†corner†of†the†window †
The†pink-orange†curtain†accepts†the†finale †
of†the†soft†spotlight †
Then†we†are†engulfed†in†darkness †
and†our†after-the-ruckus†conversation †
is†what†keeps†us†close. †
†  
~  

Before†you,†my†river†had†no†flowers †
No†blue†reflections,†even †
when†I†faced†down†and†gurgled†the†water. †
Such†is†life,†then †
flirting†with†drowning †
When†breath†is†only†sustainment †
without†my†mouth†on†your†mouth †
†  
How†a†desert†lotus†had†no†rain †
-Craved†to†be†under†my†dark†cloud †
that†I†took†for†granted †
(I†made†the†air†moody†over†me †
just†to†provide†myself†shade). †
†  
How†you†blossomed,†suddenly †
How†the†river†around†us †
gave†back†new†memories†for†the†sky †
with†colors†I've†forgotten †
Until†handed†back,†by†the†armful †
that†you've†brought†me. †
†  
How†we†placed†bets; †
I†see†your†love †
and†raise†you†mine. †
†
