my star...

march08

is unwinding
      sharply
i can feel its movement in
    dreams of future
  nightmares from past
and a flush
rubs my heart tenderly
      go
          really
            far far
        away
that's all it seems to say
lie down under a jasmine tree
shaded with fragrance of love
not that it matters
but the fear is fading
          or the nerves are too numb to feel
never mind
soldier; destiny will take you
                somewhere
        really
      far far
            away
in a land framed by beautiful pine
trees; shedding leaves
as beautiful; and as sad
as spinsters uprooted from arms of fathers; brothers
extended families.
  star?
unwind...
        rewind
        for as long as you like
i will lay, slain or otherwise
on my bed with my entwined half
              my muse
              my consort
              my recourse
      my surrender
      my defense
      my soul mate
            with deep breaths heaving our chest
            half-parted mouths exhaling tenderness
            warm bodies
limbs damp
with sheen of satiation...
