And when I'm with you,
Earth, Venus, and the moon
are strung along the same cosmic thread,
the stars align,
and we--are eternal.
When I am with you,
my soul fills my body with elation,
doing turns in my stomach and flips
in my chest.
fluttering in my throat--
my tongue loses its razor edge.
My knees are like putty.
My hands are all twisted nerve,
unsettled and shaky.
My lips are a quiver
and my tongue, once full with wit,
knowing nothing of the stars and of science...
knowing nothing of numbers...
In this moment,
my comprehension is peaked.
The only stars I know are
in your eyes;
the only science I'm sure of is chemistry--
it bubbles up rampantly betwixt you and I.
Mathematics is moot
for in this space in time,
the sum total of infinity is "two"--
which is personified by our bodies
and amplified by our souls.
We are eternal.
no longer equaling two,
but quickly surpassing space
