There is a moment...
That changed everything
For that moment
Is mine. Is his. Is ours.
In my moment...
It seems if every bone o’ mine broke
My veins tangled themselves new
The air I inhaled
Felt like my first gasp of fresh air
As if I was seeing this world anew
In that moment...
You stood in front of me bare skinned
Weaving loose leaf tobacco together
The tips of your fingers stumbled
Shaking nerves as if you wished
I wasn't watching you
We exhaled together
As your shoulders suddenly
Rested down your back
In your moment...
you seemed to sit in your body assured
As you lit the cigarette on a candle flame
Your nervous twitch seen no more
Giggling to yourself as your head shook
Dipping your fingertips into the wax
Goose bumps raised down your spine
Inhaling and exhaling the smoke
While grabbing your notepad
Scribbling words at the speed of light
For our moment...
You threw your inked words to the side
To turn towards me as your eyes watered
And when they met mine
my pupils gasped to expand
Taking you in as if for the first time
And when that sight met my heart
I felt your heart beat in my chest
Fading the vinyl that continued to turn
For our moment...
In the same breath, we exhaled.
To let our lips slip "I love you"
Feeling what it meant to love and be loved
Reaching out to one another
We jumped to crash in one another's arms
I felt your heart explode in your kisses
As your tongue vibrate from a murmur
Of the earth quake that occurred inside you
For in that moment.
I wrapped my bones around you
Intertwined my fingernails with your locks
As we slowed it down for a moment
So you could see me, as I saw you
Slowed it down for a moment
To slow dance to our heart beats
As I prayed to the gods and goddesses
To be able to breathe this love in
And in this moment...
If your heart still beat
If your eyes could water
If your chest would rise and fall
My bones would wrap around you
Our skin pressed, eyes magnetized
Love and grace
Would run from your head to your feet
I would be yours
