whose softly curved lips
reveals a smile beneath
my soft-pressed kiss;
she takes me to the place,
exactly where I always meant to go;
outside of time and place,
past flesh to thought –
I dissolve in her radiant reflection.
Her love is an image of the world
made small enough to hold inside my mind;
an exploration of that inward beauty
where the borderlines of “she” and “I” meet
between the real and the imagined,
the present and the past,
the lost and the found,
the lasting and eternal.
Time seems almost to dissolve.
With her, everything is an
infinite exploration and discovery
of the self and the universal,
and I, the jouncing and jostling
constantly adjusting the gear
on my back, steeling my resolve,
finding my footing and heading off
upon unchartered paths.
