speak no word
no more
not a sound, i implore you
just hush to my breathing
can you hear my heart beating?
beating, beating...
just a touch, so fleeting...
and in rush the angels!
There! very still now
gently, gently
lift the veil now, just so...
So Bright!
uncontainable, unspeakable moment!
did you feel it?
that timeless, unending lament
for souls seeking union
sparks to the flame
the song of the longing that has no name
no sound
no word
just a touch, so fleeting...
two souls meeting
just hush to my heart
beating, beating....
