One Morning © Stacy Esch


Kissing you
Hear as my silence is

We merge alone together now
While life has intercourse with time

Logic is replaced by an unending full body orgasm
All shadows join to kiss the dark of love forms us lightly

You may
    For the life of every reason you ever believed
Trust nothing
You may
    Leave love and give survival it’s eternal reality
          Of war and mirror or simply be here

Hear as my silence is kissing you
To become the make of human divine love we aliens all
There is no other ending bye and bye the sleep of worlds

There is no exchanging your eternity for victory over anything
Welcome to lessons born loving the end of ever last lesson born
When the last sound is a tender silent kiss

Hear as my silence is yours as your harms end heard
