Just Once

March 23, 2015

© 2015 All Rights Reserved


Just once, can I feel the throbbing beat of your heart against mine?

No deity in the way, just unity

Just once, can there be a time when we are as one

With the answers we need by speaking the language of the eyes?

Just once, can I be filled up

With the sheer madness of joy and primal knowing?

Just once, can the rules be bent to make them fit

With the curve of morality

Instead of empty once-upon-a-times

And dreamless sleep to infinity?

Filled with fanciful imagination and longing.
Been there, done that, wore the t shirt, and completely forgot what it really felt like at the time.

Such serene longing is felt here.

Hmm, just once a night. As they say... Once a king always a king, once a knight is enough.

Seya behind the bike shed. Lol. Xx
