Ineffable Desire

The midnight hour
is fast approaching
and I find myself outside
bare feet upon the dew-dropped grass
touching the reality of earth
where all that is of worth
begins and ends

I reach now, deep inside
to find desire's other side
that simply wants to touch
with all of me
another form
and then this fantasy
is put in motion

as the scent of ocean air invades
deep memories of flesh that touches flesh
and I long for nothing more than this
to feel you deep inside of me
bringing every memory to now

for the stars reside
within your eyes
as sure as endless skies become
just one within a breath
that spells the death
of any one alone

but tell me this
how many times
can I withstand
the fire of this ineffable desire
without you here . . . ?
