Sonnet 155

Unsure, yet so sure
And never surer upon your shore
Sun blinded by smile, I sleepwalk to save
Every step from a fall
Each sensation from a name
Any picture from any frame

Your flame

Flickers and growls, purrs, then it prowls
Filling the footprints of a slave that dreams
To your light, your light

Chaining your waist
into my brain
By holy nectar
And back again

I’m saving energy for truth
With a golden smile and a broken tooth
As all your powers put me in tune
With every sonnet sung for you

You tame the untamed
And break me in a child’s laughter
As cream is crashed o’er crushed fruit clusters
Sweet, then savage
Here in and forever after

I want you
I want you
I want

You…

…from the brink of nativity
To the tomb of all time

I’m saving energy for truth
With a golden smile and a broken tooth
As all your powers put me in tune
With every sonnet sung for you
