15 Years to You

by indigosparke

Planted a most tender
Into the palm of my hand
For all the things
We could not do
And could not say
Up against the edges
Of the cages around us

I don’t even know you…

But the moment your lips touched my skin
My whole world melted
I had to close my eyes
And when I opened them you were looking at me

I wondered what you were thinking
Even though I already knew

The music that had dulled in that stillness
Reclaimed its throbbing beat in my body
Deep and primal

I had to move towards it
Into it
Let it consume me the way I wanted you to
Deep and primal
I had to move towards it
Away from that moment
Leaving it hanging delicately above us
To drift further away into the ether

Closer to the sun
