a totally inadequate word
for this passion that rages;
outpacing each obstacle
tossed in its path
for the unimaginable depths of feeling
welling up unbidden
overcoming guarded habits
of a lifetime.
for the fierce unwillingness to bow to reason
rendering demographics meaningless
by overriding time and space
to meet in another dimension.
longing to be free of the earthly pull
to tear off restraints –
overwhelmed by the sheer joy
that lifts my spirit to the heavens
yearning for moments yet to come
to touch your lips, to gaze into your eyes
to feel your breath warm my cheek
Our hearts beat in perfect unison.
