Remember Our Short Visits?

Time paused for the longest hour, the second my eyes kissed your sight
I let go of fear and we continued to stare passed our pupils…
Deep into the roots of my palm I found a destination to humble myself into loving again…
With my laughter I stopped you from falling with nothing but a long breath, I've been told it's through the wonders of my lord, now I understand why they say I'm blessed.
We ushered our pride into unbounded silence as daydreams came to take us to our planets…they separated fitting hearts but our eyes were windows in seeing each other …just like the first second we held a gaze.
While swimming in a lake of abandoned hearts I sank to the bottom to only pick up lines of poetry so I could cleanse in them, I hold thoughts of when I may write love into my bed sheets and then I froze…
As we climb back into earth your seeking touch perfects my flaws now I'm radiant with beauty…finally worthy of the flattering praise.
As I glance at time my heart aches as this is a short visit before we return home…to our unlike planets…to our different forms.
I still have flashbacks of when I found comfort in tree backs surrounded in heavy puddles of rain…subhanallah
I fell silent into words that made breathing wonderful, loving the only thing I knew…
And here we are once again on our short visit and I have no need to reach for my pen.
Sunday came… we correlated in thunder waves as you tasted the fresh strawberries off my lips…remember?
…I'll never forget
Gambled seats of high status just so we could pause a moment to walk alongside each other without words said…unlived moments by any other…
Instrumented seashells clutter as you walk through them to reach yesterday
… In mirrors harmonized by the piano I stay licensed to wait till you stand on the steps of today, with me...
As I bathed I sipped in juices of bitter times and hints of smiles…obviously we had just began on the street of painted love…at the end of the road laid a portrait of us ....
A serenade dedicated in the balance of unlike planets with different forms heading home after a short visit.
