Beating Inside Me

Beating Inside Me

memory: sound, rise and fall

of your breathing

tremulous tenderness at my nape

hairs quivering as we are barely touching

you: embedded within me

two shivering hearts

breathing your scent so I never forget

you, beating inside me

nothing earthly breaks asunder

our souls’ steel intent

choose path of least resistance

until we free ourselves from fear

listen to universal language of the heart

comings and goings ebb then flow

when you beat inside me

remembering you, my Beloved

your soul always beside me

even when life’s waves crash us

onto separate foreign shores

you, my North star guides me Home
