Slowly learning to be human
Espousing an ethereal ethos
That contradicts a time-honored woman.
My eyes close but there's nothing behind them,
Give me something with which to measure it along,
Delay my heartbeat so it has only physical function
Where drums leisurely bang out a sensual song.
Looking beyond the horizon to the intersection,
A steady gaze can change the rules,
An impetus to align in a weightless space
Where a conscious eclipse awaits
Me with timeless advice
On a timeless embrace.
Waiting in my own body a stranger
Waiting for my mind to return her
Waiting for him endlessly, the consummate suitor.
