Secret lover

That moment between sleep and waking,

when limbs lie heavy sinking into stone wall




Where I can float on unseen currents of air,

find you standing without misconceptions.


That moment between life and love

when the heart stretches to open,


when passion flies in like a golden eagle,

with the sun  flaming its wings.


Each time I see you it’s the same

that huge unseen force that empties out the room,


I devoid of oxygen am gasping like a fish

on your outstretched hand.


Lovers mingle at the corner of the street

traffic noises whirr inside our lives, but, you and I adrift,


an unknown sea of stars collide at corners of the bar

where neither one can speak, of the love we feel.
