Closer to you

To feel you any closer
We would have to be one
To let go any further
I’d have to come undone

As our  shadows meld together
Upon the bedroom wall
Our hearts beating in unison
Breaths that rise and fall

Your hands leaving imprints
Upon my very soul
As two halves of a being
Meet and become a whole

I look into your eyes
love reflected as light
Dancing like a candle flame
On this moonless night

Reach into me and capture
This essence as your own
Take me, own me, hold me close
In ways I’ve never known

You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book unless I have the opportunity to be walking on the beach collecting seashells:)
