Beyond Eon’s Black Reach
Binary stars trapped in a fever
Dream. Shared Soul burns in blue
Flame, eternity, dance forever,
He leads, yet follows, too.
Palms touch, She spins away to Venus
And beyond His reach, She
Seas, Serenity, Luna touched
Her foot, leaping and free.
His feet stamped against a billion stars’
Light of Red Giant, glowed
Between teeth, He pulled Her from afar,
Orion cheered the show.
They would spin to a place no light reached
Beyond Eon’s black reach
To the Earth, She lead, “Rest!” He beseeched
Fate, this Dance cannot cease.
His Songbook? Spell-Book’s Page
Resonating, plucked strings call the Heart
Broken key halts the tune
Of lost lovers and discordant thoughts
Lingering. Bane and Boon.
Arpeggio learned from unknown worlds
A part, parcel, package
From the loved and lost, his song unfurls
His Songbook? Spell-book’s page.
From afar, Her hips flicked fire and heat
Suffocate, choking breath
Burning for release. Her rose? He reached
Blistering, no relief.
The Stars above sang a mournful tune
Less of love, more of need
Fullness and fog, His heart, Her fire blooms
This night. Each joined, yet freed.
Brightly, Blindly. Heart’s Gold.
Mother said, “Do not Dance for His sake.”
Forsaken? Seared by Flames.
Whipped to frenzy, Passion flares awake
And dreaming without shame.
Daughter said, “Mother, the Dance? My own.”
In this, She found her Soul
Filling while full, embers deep, did glow
Brightly, blindly. Heart’s gold.
Stars above, performed the slowest Dance.
Thorn-pierced tongue touched clenched Rose
Water. She flowed, thus, knew Him entranced.
Shaming Stars. Fits and throes.
For all these Years, she had heard His strings
Strumming, He wouldn’t speak.
Words? Unneeded. Strumming fingers sing
Songs. Love. She feared to seek.
Cosmic Lovers’ Caress
A trail of Suns gathered by Her skirt.
Sewn and weaved, Cosmos spun
Around, come undone, but serious?
Sirius. Dog-tired, done.
Lonely Earth begged loud, Eon’s demands
Unfilled, empty, Heartless
Thoughts banished by Strumming, Song, and Dance
Cosmic Lovers’ caress.
As Eon clawed to bring Lovers Home
Strummer plucked His high note
Eon raged, “Return before you’ve gone!”
Dancer laughed, Her ire arose.
“Eon, be damned, you fool!” She spoke low
Key, tuned, the strings un-broke
Lovers sent Lonely Earth’s wish back Home
New Lovers, Hearts awoke.
