Breathe into Me

I breathe myself into you,
a desire so sincere
you have only to drink.
For a moment
I hold your wholeness,
your unbroken yolk
within myself.
No one could ever mean
what you mean to me.
It’s safe to speak
the words in your heart.
Everything you feel
is sacred.
Everything you feel
is mirrored in me.

Sometimes I overflow
with emotion
like a sunset across water.
Together our bodies
would make an ocean.
Together we’d have
a heart big enough
to cradle humanity.
Can you really say
that you don’t feel it?

I could watch you
thread needles all day.
I love the way
your hands move
when gathering
my heart together.
I love the way
you breathe yourself
into me
like a dream
without ending.
