It started with that kiss, on the walk,
in the park… in the dark… in the drizzle
In the salted soul…
Was it a cry inside me and you?
Was it me and you today talking?
What we know of the laws of love are always beside us, inside us,
from that kissing witness of fear and lips and lips in fear
“She beheld me,”
I say of you since then
But it was your eyes
in quick back-and-forth sidesteps
That made me enter your
world that I will never leave
(I knew everything’s force from that moment’s truth)
I could suss out our eternity
