coupling

I am immersed in you
seamlessly – like the breath
that fills and un-fills
my lungs,
like water that
ebbs and flows
inside of me,

but you are fire and blood
red-hot and simmering,
I have lost everything tranquil
to the thought of you.

you are the chaos
that erodes and abrades
burns, and turns everything to
cinder, smoke and ash. 

I let you
lick the edges of me
into shape
warmed, where I am cold
touched, where I haven’t been touched
felt, where I am unfelt.
and I tame
your raw unevenness. tether your longings.
and bring you into balance.
draw you so you are held now
like amber liquid
sparkling inside my bosom.

warm/cold
dark/light
our union is the rapture
that breathes stars into the galaxies.
