poem~Walk to the Paradise Garden

Walk to the Paradise Garden

Romeo and Juliet
in the
tall grass
hidden from 
the world of ourselves
my thighs bracing to
lock you closer
blood pulsing picture patterns
behind closed eyelids
each move
each honeyed lip
I can feel
alive inside me
surreal snapshots 
melting time to make us
whole once more.
