Desire (Always One Heartbeat)

I am a wild rose

Blossoming in futility

You are the errant breeze

Laced with every emotion of desire

Just touch me once

A velvet kiss

And open up the gates of heaven

With your breath

My petals are freed

Offering themselves

To the waiting breeze

Tearing through the vast avian vault

Somewhere they are there

Floating forever

In the wind

In the boundless limits of the sky

From shore to shore

Drifting softly and slowly

They fall down upon you

Gentle caresses laid to rest

With the softness

Of remembered touch

Rippling like waves

That flow through you

Like a gentle river

The four winds

Will take us where they will

But there is always

One heartbeat

And always one eternity
