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.
