Meant to be

As the night falls
Your warm embrace beckons me 
We draw a sign of protection
An invisible mark that guards our being
I watch you lean and shut your eyes
As your lips slowly consume me 
I wish you'd never drift away
I hear you sinking slowly
Your breath settling for comfort
Soon humming a constant pattern
No worries, no cares, no fears
Everything lost to silence
And I smile as I watch you
Because it's not a different world
You'll be travelling to
I'll follow you arm in arm
Wherever your dreams take you
And we'll paint them together
Because our union transcends 
Space, time and mortal boundaries
Even realities
And every time I shut my eyes
I find you form within
Somewhere behind my eyelids
A vision unseen
It etches out slowly
A formless broken outline
The colours fill in
Bit by bit, drop by drop
As you slowly grew closer
Like wine fermented over time
To my soul and being
Like a flawless piece of marble
Your purity consumes me
Like a gust of wind
You sweep me off my feet
Like the permanence of the sky
I know this is meant to be

The divide..

I left at your doorstep
A bundle of sweet nothings
Of honey lemon yesterdays
Of moonlit dances
And tangerine memories
Overshadowing the pain


While I took for myself
A little bag of sorrow
Stashed and hidden
In the garb of newfound pleasure
And one unkept promise
Staring back in retrospect

Is that even now?

The union

As lips were sealed in blissful glee
A story unfolded in melted arms 
Lost in sighs to the sunset skies
I gave in to your ruthless charms

On roads that seldom seemed to end
You took me places like never before
Leading me through hypnotic rushes
I couldn't just stop wanting you more

And then time sang a woeful ballad
Fingers and threads slowly untwined
But walls stood testimony to that eve
That union, in moments hard to find
