SHADOWS OF INTIMACY


SHADOWS OF INTIMACY

S.JENSEN (C) 2019

MY DEAR LET US

CROSS THE PATH

ONE LAST TIME

LET ME COME

TO YOU

WHERE NO ONE ELSE

CAN GO

BUT US

INTO YOUR DREAM

ITS MY BEDTIME

ITS YOUR MORNING

THAT 6 TO 12 SCALE

LET ME FINALLY LAY

WITH YOU

IN A PLACE...

THE BLUE DIES OUT

IN THE PEN

AND FOREVER

IS THE PURPLE

UP TIL THE END

OF THE WORDS

WHERE IT TOO

DIES OUT

COMPLETELY

OUT OF INK

I WRITE

IN PENCIL OF PINK

I LOVE YOU!

FOR WHAT ITS

WORTH

I LOVED YOU

I SO LOVE YOU!SO

I DO THIS

BECAUSE I LOVE YOU!

WHERE SHADOWS

FEAR TO TREAD

A PLACE TRULY

BUILT ON YOUR

GRACE AND TRUST

AND MY INTIMACY

OF NO PRIVACY

SO YOU KNOW

THE WHOLE TRUTH

I NEVER HIDE

ANYTHING

NO REASON TO

TO BE

THE UTMOST

ROMANTIC

WAS MY ONLY GOAL

INNOCENTLY

LOST

WITHOUT COALS

THE FIRE IS TOTALLY

ERASED

DEVOID OF ANYTHING

AND YOU AND I

ARE MADE OF EVERYTHING

WORDS ONLY EXPRESS

A DESIRE

AND IN DAILY LIFE

WE ARE OCEANS

APART

TO BE TRULY COLD

YET WITH ONE WORD

YOU COULD

MAKE MY HEART SOAR

OUT OF THAT

AND NOW

ONE WORD

COULD CRUSH IT

INTO THE ASHES

OF THE FIRE

WHERE I REST

ETERNALLY

ONLY YOU HAVE

THIS ABILITY

ONLY YOU

IN OUR WAYS

US

CAN IT BE

FROM YOU AND I

AND I TO YOU

NO ONE ELSE

HOLDS MY HEART

LIKE YOU DO

NO ONE WILL

EVER HOLD MY

HEART LIKE

YOU HAVE

BREAK THE BONDS

OF THIS REALITY

THOSE DAMN

BOUNDARIES

ONE MORE TIME

WITH ME

TO BE WITH

YOU

BEFORE I KNOW

YOU

WALK ETERNALLY

OUT THAT DOOR

OF MY LIFE

YOUR SPACE

YOUR INTIMATE

GRACE

I WANT TO SHOW YOU

JUST HOW

WONDERFUL

BLISSFUL

ME LOVING YOU

CAN REALLY BE

AND SO

IT BEGAN...

AND ENDED...

GO BACK TO SLEEP

THIS DAY

THE NIGHT OF MINE

THE MORN OF YOURS

LET THE VEIL

FOR ONE MOMENT

OPEN YOUR HEART

IN CLOSED EYES

FOR A SHORT TIME

I STILL HEAR IT

SCREAMING

PLEASE

FOR ME

AS I KNOW

MINE DOES

BURIED INTO

THIS SHELL

COLD AS ICE

I CAN SO BE

ITS NO UNKNOWN

YET MY FIRE

DOES NOT BURN

IN ITS COLD

STARE

IF YOU CHERISH

ANY OUNCE

OF OUR

EMBRACES

HERE

CROSS FANTASY

INTO A WORLD

I CAN TRULY

DELIVER

AND REMEMBER

ITS FOR THIS

FLESH AND BLOOD

ENERGY

IN ME

NEEDS TO BE SET

FREE

IN YOU

TO TRULY BE FREE

I CAN EXPRESS

EVERY ASPECT OF US

BUT FROM

ONLY EXPERIENCE

CAN WE BE

ONE OR NONE

FROM THE TOUCH

OF YOUR HAIR

TO THE KISS OF

YOUR LIPS

BELOW

TO THE RAGING

POUNDING RHYTHMS

OF OUR UNION

CAN I DECLARE

THAT MOMENT

WE SHARED

IS INFINITY

EVEN IF YOU ARE

GONE NOW

SOMEDAY

I WILL BE WITH

ANOTHER

THAT WILL

NOT LET ME WALK AWAY

HOPE ITS

IN THIS LIFETIME

THAT SEALS

OUR FATES

FROM THE MOMENT

WE SET FOOT

ON THAT PATH

IN ONE DIRECTION

TOGETHER

OR TOTALLY OVER

THE CHOICE WAS ALWAYS

YOURS

I WILL NOT

FORCE IT

IF YOU TRULY

HATE ME SO

LET THIS BE THE

LAST OF YOU AND I

THE FLAME

FLOWER

WHERE MY THORN

WOUNDS

PLUCK IT OUT

AND THROW IT AWAY

SO NOTHING BUT

YOUR WINGS

COVERS

AND I WILL NEVER

HURT YOU

AGAIN

AND SO

YOU HAVE HATED ME

THAT I AM

YOU SAID IT

SO

IN TWO SECONDS

FROM THE EDGE

YOU SAW A FACE

IT FADED AWAY

AS FAST

AS IT CAME

DID IT NOT

AND I HEARD IT

IN YOUR LAST

GOODBYE

YOUR LAST THREE WORDS

I WOULD EVER

EAR ON THAT

PHONE

AGAIN

THE TEARS

ARE NEVER ENDING

WHEN I MISS YOU

HE SAVED YOU

THAT DAY

HE DESERVES YOU

YET HE ALSO

TOOK YOU AWAY

AWAY FROM THIS WORLD

AND

AFTER THIS DAY

I WILL NOT

EVER RETURN

OUR FATE WILL

LAY IN THE HANDS

OF YOUR OWN

MAKING

HOW DARE I BE

THE GODDESS

I ONCE WAS

AS I WRITE THIS

LET ME

LET GO

OF THE PAST

TO BE IN THE PRESENT

YOU ARE ALWAYS

HERE

YOU ARE ALWAYS

ON THIS

DO NOT TORTURE

ME IN THIS

FEELING

I HAVE

TO EXPRESS

...

ONE MORE TIME

I DO DARE

I SO DARE

BECAUSE I TRULY

CARED

ITS A SHAME

YOU THREW IT

ALL AWAY!

YOU MUST

KNOW THAT

SOME BATTLES

TRULY ARE

BEYOND ALL OF US

I WANTED TO

LURE YOU

YOUR LOVE LUST

ONE LAST TIME

IN A PLACE

WHERE I AND YOU

YOU AND ME

CAN BE AS ONE

ONE CAME

IN THERE

WHILE I WAS

FEEDING THE CHILD

YES A MEMORY

YET ALSO

A POSSIBLE FUTURE

LET THE WATER

OF YOU AND I

CARRY

YOU

WHERE OUR OCEANS

RUN FROM

OPPOSITE SIDES</
