Melpomene

Drawing breath from the depths of a dream,You swim beneath the solitude of skin, To the primal pulse of my mind's eye, Where I yearn for your fugitive lips...

Your language, not of the tongue, Swells with the promise of home. And my eyes hunger upon wake, Through the doubt of day, For the mere sight of you...

Yet words are but the surface, shimmering arrows to the wind, There is no labour in tenderness Only the ache of our separation. For your beauty is a feeling that flows, Like the seasons to the trees...
