Constellations of Memory

 

After

the collision

of our bodies

Under

the blanket

of seductive night

Where

our eyes

became the stars

That

shone with

bright kindled desire

Our

fingers galaxies

that reached to

Caress

space infinite

in colorful exploration

The

movement of

our desperate passions

Is

the swirling

dance of the

Cosmos

made of

stars and planets

Alike

in a

dizzying beating rhythm

 

While

our voices

drag like a

Comet

into the

silence flaring across

The

night sky

in punctuated reverberations

And

our shared

breaths are the

Space

in between

the light of

The

stars set

in inky blackness

It

is only

after we have

Set

the galaxies

in wondrous motion

And

they have

again come to

Be

stilled, suspended

in ageless celestial

 

Expanse

when I

am again alone

Left

in the

silent aftermath of

The

impact between

our heavenly bodies

That

I look

at the temple

Which

you worshipped

under stars, night,

Creation

with your

hands, tongue, being

And

I find

reminders of your

Journey

constellations across

my skin marking

The

vast reaches

of space that

I

am made

of like a

Title

a reminder

of who claimed

 

Every

inch of

skin and I

Can’t

not think

of you when

I

see them

and I hope

That

when you

look across the

Map

of your

own skin that

I

have marked

you with a

Claim

of my

own and so

You

can’t not

think of me

As

my own

constellations kiss the

Sky

of your

body’s heavenly sphere

And

so you

won’t forget that

 

I

held a

piece of you

my hands

just as you

Held

me and

left these memories

Of

your having

while we let

Our

stars collide

under night sky
