Anew

Life is drumming, rhythm – my pulse, rise & fall.
In one sentence you reset me, invert the pattern.
Like the ocean finds the shore my love finds a home in you.
They speak of exit signs, restless souls – in your arms – I am me, without hesitation or care.

Entrenched, fickle dogma – respect privilege, contagious their self appointed authority.
She soothes my libido, my angst, my soul – the girl creates purpose in breathing, her touch is perfect fulfilment.
I’ll never let you down, convalescent mutualism – toe to head, nights to daze – adoration.
Dictionaries weep in our presence, tears of joy, their contents used as intended.

The physics of emotion – our love, our cycle.
Chills, heartbeats – fingers on skin, bending time with touch.
Euphoric – all senses explored in each other.
Our beginning ends in preludes summoned at will, gaze tries to take in the vast expanse of us.

We hold universes in our palms. Synchronised, like swimmers, we randomise experience.
You are sequenced infinity, that which this boy holds closest, the verge of oneness, atop my tip plummet in your abandonment of reservation.
Extinguished want, I inhale your sighs. Harmony, unfettered – in each other, exponential – love without limit.
There will never be enough pages to fill with words for you, instead I’ll fill you with all I am.
Not sleeping & sleeping are the same, just different. All things rediscovered in you, some things pioneered.
This boy, he loves you.
Some things are given, the world turns, gravity regulates, my love for you grows.
A day breaks, let me hold your hand so that I may be held.

  1. *siiiigh* I’m so happy you’ve posted 🙂

    There are so many layers to this piece; I’ll try and be concise in my waffle and point out my favourite parts, though I adore it in its entirety without reservation.

    ‘In one sentence you reset me’
    A simple line yet it drew me in straight away with the weight of meaning it carries. To reset, go back to base, to the core of self. Loved it. For one person to be able to do that for another is truly quite something to cherish.

    ‘I’ll never let you down, convalescent mutualism – toe to head, nights to daze – adoration’
    Mutualism – a beautiful concept – two beings dependent in a healthy way, only a way which charges and renews both. Brings contentment. Love your play on words here.

    ‘…bending time with touch’
    The infinite possibilites of time and the power we can sometimes take back from it in moments of contentment. I’m a time junkie, as you well know.

    ‘You are sequenced infinity, that which this boy holds closest, the verge of oneness, atop my tip plummet in your abandonment of reservation.’
    Limitless, abandoning reservation – what a blissful state to witness or feel. Such an intimate line.

    ‘There will never be enough pages to fill with words for you, instead I’ll fill you with all I am’
    Romance, adoration and love just ooze out of this line…I can’t put it any more succinctly than that!

    The last four lines I could write about forever, yet equally I don’t think I can do them justice with words. One word perhaps? Kanpekina…

  2. Lost for words, yes Paul, I know you think that is unlikely if not impossible 🙂 How do you do it? Every single time I read your words I get lost in your ability and wonder. You write with such skill, emotion and conviction. The words here engulf, imprint themselves on the reader as ink from a pen. Clearly the focus of the poem is very important and held in the highest esteem. Your love and admiration is beautiful to behold. You write from within, soak your pen in the inner sanctum and pour out the most prestigious arrangements of words.

    I could take every line here, dissect it and still not understand the significance each holds. Layered yet intuitive, complex yet not indulgent, beautiful throughout.

    This boy, he loves you.

    I think that line is the focal point of the entire piece.
