Starburst, firestorm, whirlwind,

These feelings inside me,

As life explodes into jubilation,

A phoenix rising through flame,

A cascade of love and light,

Urgent, glowing, burning—


Become one with me.


Philosopher, traveler, amorous.

I soar through stars and clouds,

Careening with her, goddess of love,

She won’t abandon me,

She won’t close my opened eyes,

Instead, laboring ceaselessly to tame

My unchained heart,

Collected passions of the present,

Faces and places I won’t forget

And never could, no longer living

Among the dead and dreaming.


I love you,

And I will never let you go.
