tighty bounded kernels, hidden beneath shielded sheets.
Nothing could ever appease the heat.
The heat of us.
The warmth of you balloons and deflates
It evolves; rolls like roller skates as they smooth over the pavements of high rise cities
It spreads and prizes into me like honey,
Smooth and quaint
it absorbs between you and I;
we never loose the heat of us.
We toss and turn together in the pale ice of morning light
Your arms, like the branch to a heavy tree, cascade around my middle, nice and tight.
It always feels right.
The heat of us.
We play and intertwine until the abandonment of morning light.
Together we float, like twined kites in the iridescence of night.
we’re a whole season apart
missed sunsets and falling leaves.
next time the trees will be stark
and autumn’s mark
into the dark.
I can see fireworks through my little window
big, bright bold
sparks of colour unfold
into the night
Watch as they erupt,
Booming, all consuming.
We are the sky you and I
Catch us, go on
Try as we subsume.
the season takes hold.
as the sky unfolds
I am reminded of the line between us
unrelenting; never growing old.
because between us we are missing a whole season
it took you and left me
it’s raining leaves
and the leaves
are steady like my tears
they crash to the ground
inflaming my fears.
Their gold edge inflames my heart
it pounds for you and aches for your dark parts.
I want to see you bloom.
gold is so often the colour of joy
but in autumn
it is void.
hills divide us
but the shining, steady light inflames my lust
oh; you are a must
getting me through the faded, autumn dusk
cutting through the cusp
looming endless storming clouds
the resurgence of you
and your iridescent light;
shines forever bright.
