Everything Brings You

Everything brings you,

towards this once instance of frailty

and conceit, amidst the hunger

and the pain.

The frozenness of simony shatters,

in that one significant instance of contact.

In that one mesmerizing second,

when two bodies meet,

are you able to keep your cool?

Can you simply just exist

and breathe and enjoy

the singular beauty,

when everything

you’ve wished for has been


It’s calling you home,

softly, gently,

like a crimson whisper

on an autumn day.

Come side with me.

Come be mine again.
