Once there was and never is. Adore. Angel. Kisses. Ache. Intoxication. Plangent strum. Humming stars, moaning planets. The sun on rewind just for us. And in the lake and deep and shiver and slippery grope and fervent plunge. Hope. Wish. Divine embrace. A rare connection. A blazing match. Oh this oh god oh yes oh us. Always, darling, always. Sharp little hearts. Holy lacerations. Ad infinitum and nobody else. The rest of the universe a limp sniffling haze. This is solid this rock this climb. Oxygen rush. Sky delirious. A world a sound starring these hands. This joining this joy and ours alone. Once there is and never was. Us all glorious and lipstick smeared.
