Momentary Embrace

His hands sank through the air, almost motionless.
Time lacked its delicate, balanced consistency. 

The intensity built amongst passions hue.
Every moment permeates the stars. 

Natures’ perspiration silks the air. 
The slightest movements bring life’s meaning.

Hang on to every heavy inhalation 
Seconds turn to dust as time disintegrates.

For one fleeting breath you are everything and nothing.
For one momentary embrace you are someone and everyone.

The lust of God captured in a pupils’ dilation.
Love coils the climax across the skin.

With closed eyes and pouting lips.
Her soul is engulfed and set free.

    Check out 'When I'm Grown' the poem explains its self but I had a comment that asked where is daddy? It clearly explains it in the poem but some people aren't considerate. You're doing a good job and I encourage you to continue what you do best. Keep us eating out of the palm of your hands! P.S. Keep up the good work and leave it the way it is. Take care and I'll read all your future work, you can count on me...Raul

    Conor, I don't agree. I think your work is remarkable and powerful. I like it the way it is. I don't just enjoy reading that particular trilogy, I enjoy all your work. You have a great quality about your words that captivates me and others. I saw it the moment it was posted and thought about it that night. Constructive criticism is appreciated but that was a little harsh. I've read her comments before and most are like that, don't worry about it. I have a similar one on a poem I have-
