air and earth and water
sunset on the beach
Cancun, you said --
next year.
Sweet drinks and warm sand,
sun on the water, the skin
of your legs tan;
you on one side of me
and him on the other.
Five days, maybe more,
not just stolen moments --
five nights, maybe more,
just our family --
five nights could be eternity.


You gave me my first
real lessons in love --
what it means,
how it feels,
why it is the Goddess'
sole, true ritual.

Who taught you?
How did you learn
so much?
Won't you keep
teaching me,

Today I can not recall your hips,
though I am sure my lips know them --
I want every inch of you imprinted
on my memory.

Be naked
in my arms
in my mind
in my heart.

Today I can see your eyes clearly
and recall the way you looked at me
when last we parted and I know
you heard me.

Be naked
in my arms
in my mind
in my heart.

Today, and everyday, I will remember
when and where I got my first kiss --
and the smile that came before it
when you saw me standing there.

Be naked
in my arms
in my mind
in my heart.

said it myself:
its so like
trying to breathe;
and though
holding you close
means more to me
than food or drink
even the very air
I breathe --
never will my arms
take your
breath away.
I can let
the other things
work as they will;
give the strongest bond
known to god or man
the freedom to work
its magic.

I will come for you
no matter where
no matter when
no matter how far.
Though I have to rend
the very fabric of space
and time --
I will come for you.
No God
No Angel
No Devil
will dare bar my way
when I come for you.
