Ebony and BLue

I rise with you in my bed.
I held you like the morning bird who couldn’t fly completely.
melted in your palms like wax
I remembered you

We met last night.
I called you Blue.
You called me Ebony.
You are the artistic marine life of the reservoir.
I was the dark core of the Tree of Life.
The tension shot straight into our eyes.
And the heat enticed us to get closer.
And just like magic, the universe pulled us together.
The rivers between us are bending and falling.
Unable to grasp what we’ve got
From the smell of eggs and bacon
And the sight of your hair
I am tender.
And so are you.
In unison
Just like the oceans that separated us
Out of all seven seas and the Atlantis that no one can see anymore
We’ve sailed ship to reunite.
And it never fails to make me quiver in heat.
I was the Ebony
And you are the Blue
I lumbered through the woods of my rooted trust and love.
And you were hydrated.
Our fluidity made both of us one.
The only ones
A love that runs through our veins like the streams of South America
Long and nonstop
A midnight rendezvous
Having the Devil’s food cake and eating too
Mi casa es tu casa.
My pleasure is your pleasure.
Hours of soft touching and embrace
You completed my puzzle.
And created art that even the richest can’t buy
You may not know it.
Maybe I don’t know myself.
But I’ve seen you before.
Do you remember me?
Here I am.
And there you are.
Glistening under the Chandler sun
And moisturized
In the Presidential Suite
Looking over the army of perfect housewives and beer dads  
For the longest time
I spent my life largely asleep.
But waking up next to you opened my eyes to the fruits of my world.
Our world
I remember you.
You were the deepest space between all seven continents.
And I was the deepest core of the army of tropical trees in the WiI’mWest.
When you start to kiss
I’m in complete bliss and distraction.
When I start to kiss
You run wild in pure imagination.
I don’t remember much from last night.
But we remembered each other.
It felt like visiting an old company.
homey and cozy
You cooled me down.
And I burned you up.
Tell me, my love.
Can we I’me this one night last forever?
I’m usually not the desperate type.
And neither are you.
But you intoxicated me and led me towards addiction.
You were as red as ancient wine.
And I was as green as the mindful bud.
Ebony in blue
Me and you
The darkest core of the Tree
The deepest caves of the sea
