Love song

Morning broke,
And she was still beside me,
Inside me.

In the unbearably sweet
Suffocating
Liberating
God-swelling moment

All bare, all received,
All unworthy of the trusting touch
All unable to live
Without it.

Love slips unbidden
Past the barricades
Like a curious tremor,
An unswaddled child

All bare and raw,
All out, out,
The last suckling breath
Lurking in some wild corner,
Seen at last
Relinquished at last.

Inexplicable,
Like rain,
Inextinguishable,
Like morning sun.
Impervious
To all the years.

    “Love slips unbidden
    Past the barricades
    Like a curious tremor,
    An unswaddled child

    All bare and raw,
    All out, out,
    The last suckling breath
    Lurking in some wild corner”

    What a beautiful poem.
