the aching digs deep
into my soul
filling nights with
cravings of your touch
that drips honey
from the pages of my skin
& suddenly you create a
golden glaze on my skin
the color of earth
mixing what is meant to be mixed
creating what has been waiting to be created
Grasping at the void
<center>a glimpse<br>backward & forward<br>métrage<br>of Consciousness inflating<br> what Reality shall compress<br>rewinding our constructs<br>molecule by molecule<br>till no longer defined<br>neither as Quest,<br>nor Question,<br>just parting<br>in our Sea<br>of <br>Eternity</center>
The Space Between Us.
There are 77,358 square miles in the boring state of ours,
3.797 million square miles in this country of freedom,
196.9 million square miles on this sphere I shall never leave,
and 46.6 billion light years in the universe I will never travel.
But yet, there should be no space between us.
Lips on lips,
pushed into each other,
Out of the unlimited space we have in this world,
none should be between us.
Far back in time
A flash of light
I am here
With nothing but what I am made of
I am made up of ideas
Memories of lives gone by
Of achievement and of failure
Made by hands of peace
Created by a mind of desire
Pushed forward to claim back reason
Small in a vast world
With only my feet to show me the way

I see the stars-
And the moon-
And galaxies so far-
How insignificant are we?
I'm surrounded by a million stars
dying in the sky
If I could light a million stars
I'd have no need to cry
A distant place.
How can you go?
You want to know.
A plane that zips.
Strapped in a seat.
Your heart quickly beats.
Off you go.
The final frontier?
Or just the begining?
My favorite space is
the one between
My least favorite space
is the one
between you and I
Please give me space
No less than 1 foot
lest I think you are
I love two spaces
But only need one
And don't you dare
impregnate my pause
Some spaces are meant
to be held
no matter how awkward
the great beyond
stars blanket a sky that appears nearly
empty when viewed with the human eye
but beyond the realm of corneal vision
a world of wonders and beauty dazzle
in the world of the infinite beyond.
planets and moons decorate the long,
fluid legs of galaxies that spiral in a
delicate dance, while nebulas paint the
sky with colors: red, blue, purple;
canvasing the astral landscape in a palette
of beauty and mystique
