One Shot

If we ever meet If you ever see me Where shall I stand? Where shall it be? From dreams deep and dark I dreamt Frequently during night and day I visit it More times than you will ever know More often then I would dare admit Inconsequently the frequency grows Sending chills throughout my body and fingertips This is no coincidence This is destiny at its sweetest Made to bloom from years of commitment- My commitment to be yours, no matter the consequence If once, if only... Buried beneath flesh made stiff From the merging of two bodies joined Joined at the widening of lovers hips If we ever speak If ever you were to know me To speak my name and repeat it joyfully Spoken into crevices of dirt unspoiled to me; "I am yours," I repeat, "I am yours and yours alone, eternally" Such promises would not to be taken lightly When given as gift from heart kindly With sincere truth I speak With righteous devotion I keep Careful to tread with light feet As so not to appear conquering when we do finally meet When, where? Only then will I know of relief Until then I refuse to resort to man-made trickery If we ever come to know one another If ever I am to come to you outside of my dreams Your hand in mine I will take Wrenching it and caressing it generously- Feverishly... Tenderly, as my desire refuses to wait My desire refuses crushing Refuses to be dismissed or refrained As I speak to you, of you and yet just... My hope is to someday be near you Near you and out of this magicians dream dust To be free of it and free to declare my love Without restriction or interest in criticism Both I have known too much of I speak it, it is spoken Gifted and I pray received As if traveling by motor boat Cutting through waves and currents pushing upstream This thing, this love I have come to acquaint Eyes made vision and truthful as I imagine us face to face Given no dialect, no dialogue, no sense of direction or pace To be, and yet to have come from two such distantly different states Makes one's body surge and curve while remaining in one place Because as I've said, if we ever meet If ever you are to see me- I promise our meeting will come to no such waste.
