Alberta Skies

 

You slide through the night, dark and slow

And the light of your inner being

Shines brighter than the brightest stars

Each twinkle a kiss upon your velvet skin

Each touch a falling star across the heavens

 

Wish upon one, I say

I have, you reply, to hundreds

and every dream envelopes me

like my arms around your nakedness

the aroma of you, intoxicating

 

the wind calls through the trees

the answers don’t matter

to the questions of this universe

it is simply being and nothing else

you are the drug I cannot shake
