opening inside a chrysalis

opening inside a chrysalis

a downpour of thoughts
drenched with meaning
beyond what washes 
the topsoil away,
you and I
are furtive plantings
at best,
mixing with the elements
the grandeur of life and death
in newborn fingers

at air 

an insect melodrama
spilling catharsis and benediction
with every struggling breath
copied and pasted
to load-bearing beams 
of starlight
plastered like sweat

skin to skin,
we are lovers
reining in the night
with bliss 
empty of dreams
that come not between,

we were parched with anger
thirsted and hungered
blossoms erupted with the scent
of us

jealous Gods 
following in the love 
of our making
a consuming fire

my heart catches with
