Greater Intimacy


I wonder at what hour you sleep
so that I could fall asleep according
to when you close your eyes,
when you might sigh,
and glimpse at the moon
so that I might also;
feeling a greater intimacy,
being synchronized with you
like transparent beams of your intellect
mingling with my deeper feelings,
and rendering me hypnotized
and thirsty for something even more secret,
even taboo;
Your attributes flawless,
your pale white complexion a ghost
shadowing what I know well to be
some brilliant red sun inside of you.
You possess every quality
In which I find most desirable;
the epitome of the lover
that I dreamed of through adolescence.
My well cultivated garden of feeling,
that is so beyond words,
becomes a novel through your intellects.
You must be my twin soul;
The one thing that drives me into
The full potential of my being
I am yours now (eternally)

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
