AlchemiA

-- it's romantic at first,
 1
falling placing lifting moving
 2
'til you always end-up where your surging fugues
 3
swell into a luminous present
 4
-- still, in the infinity engulfing each breath,
 5
is a sacred longing,
 6
a lingering lament,
 7
an ancient-ache,
 8
and we persist in the worship of each
 9
step that we take for loves sake
 10
 
 
-- and it has always been about you, and the love at last, that we make...
 11
 
 
then, when your heart finally bursts,
 12
you'll see lotus petals undulating
 13
with an inner tessellation of light,
 14
blossoming from the visceral pain
 15
of those old desperate-separations:
 16
I'll be waiting for you
 17
screaming from deep inside,
 18
and it feels like a stake
 19
through the chest,
 20
surely, you can divine the rest ...
 21
 
 
to linger with a lover,
 22
worship in the twirl of her hair,
 23
is called cafuné;
 24
while to loaf alone,
 25
a silent-witness to all 'this,'
 26
is to surge with the urge-to-merge,
 27
in longing for that kiss...
