Deeper shades of read

each word becomes home      
proven sanctuary      
moored upon warmth that is you      
call out to me— my other half      
I'm listening      
where meeting between the lines      
is bold discovery      
that heartily welcome      
arcs of pure incendiary imagination      
exposing mind, body and soul      
feel deep, in bold triumphant spirit      
revel amongst pleasurable panacea      
riding out as waves, crashing      
marvel each page's turn      
across a captivated yearn      
carving out hope and longing      
coil it,      
oh so slowly around us      
press into places      
brand hearts      
of verse and chapter      
awe at those heady sparks      
as they illuminate all the empty darkness      
lighting up pathways long forgotten      
colors not of this world      
beget our new alien luminescence      
how strangely perfect, this      
our magnificently foreign glow... glows      
painting everything      
a single shade of rhapsody
