Union Remade

There is no explanation.

Violable rite, sacred sentiment

Leave me breathless and irreverent.

You take my face in your hands.

Lying again, I climb the shelf

At the apex I find myself

Rubbing weary eyes. My dreary surprise.

I shoulder your love in my stance.

Echoes of your hymn,

O God, where should I begin?

I confess I come apart. Again.

I count our estrangement as my sorrow.

Swaddled in my solitude,

Impassionate subdue

Grips my plexus. Leave me breathless.

I count our reunion as my joy.
