Desert sun is to be held close between one and another
A feeling of energy, electricity flowing in the aura between
Looking into the eyes so brown, deep as the ocean, no sonly defect to intervene.
Devoid of a justification
Spontaneous urge to intertwine one’s body with another
Settling into a curve of light and dark, brother and brother as lover
Moon settling deep, a silver thread on darkened dune.
Yet these are all things for me such seem to escape
As moments slip away
Regret comes after me like rape
Subtle, numbing, and all-encompassing
It haunts and drains my soul.
Car door slammed, few words said
It felt like a part of myself was raw; blood red
Will I ever find it?
Will it ever make itself known?
I see glimpses in others, only to be returned to my purgatory as a home
Lust, but purist emotion and subtlest glories.
A memory is its bitter derivative
A song its siren cry
Oh, how I long for an end
How I wish I said those words to you, Salem.
