We grow into one, you and I-

Like vines, branches, we grow from separate lives

Into the composite we are.


You have me in your ambiance ~

My voice has changed to harmonize with yours.

Your hands burn with the feeling of my skin

I set fire to you with my eyes.


And you inflict ecstasy on me-

You warm my toes with

Your toothy joy and sunbeam stare.

You bleed your love all over my universe.

And I fall to the depths of peace.


And you’re there with open arms that reach

All the way around my mental circuitry-

Around the whole city block of me

And my raving individuality-


And then you kiss me

And tears become stars.
