Through the lace curtains
The light of the full moon and bright stars
Shine with an unusual luminescence.
Brighter than I’ve ever known either to be,
This magical light
That shapes the contours of our form.
That I see the slight pulsing
Of your resting, content heart beating
Lightly on your neck.
I love these moments
Watching you sleep
Your peaceful demeanour
Filled with satisfaction
In this moment you love me.
In the midst of the darkness
You allow this love to exude,
Will the sun make it shine a different colour in the morning?
Now that I’m ready
To give my freedom to you
Not to be your slave
But to assure you that all of who I am I want to be yours.
Will always remain
But it will be transformed by the beauty of us,
And this is a reflection of the situation we find ourselves in at present.
So is this moment enough?
Enough for me to not wonder what will happen tomorrow?
I don’t know,
But what I can say is,
I will not compromise
On the exceptional love
I have waited for,
The one I deserve.
I will not settle
For a mere rainbow
But I will chase after the extraordinary
Of the rare moonbow,
And I will strive to obtain it,
I will make it the epicentre of my domain
Because nothing worth possessing
Is easily acquired
And once acquired work is still needed to ensure permanent residence.
I have stood at the precipice
Of disastrous abyss
A place of no hope, no light, no happiness,
But it was not my end,
And to be in this moment
Experience this feeling
I cannot question the answers that only tomorrow will bring
But live in this moment and carry hope to see what that tomorrow will bring.
