Desire

You are the light of the world
You are a town built on a hill
You cannot be hidden
Although hide and seek
Is fun to play with you

Can we take our blindfolds off?

I think about the last hour of this day
Old friend
How I wish to rewind it
Paste your smile all over the walls
Experience it together again
In a different collage

My quick sleep tonight
Might just delete it all
Starting over tomorrow
Will it be as great as it was
Yesterday?

Will I be alone
In a strange city
Figuratively

Intervening time and place
I know I knew you from before
Like the first book
I ever read

I remember it well
The way the pages felt
The smell

Like the bitter-sweet
Shakespearian tongue
That picks the fruit
From my soul
When you speak
It could only be yours

Just as I am ferociously

Consumed in the fire
Of my desire
For you
