Rest My Lover Sweet

Rest . . .

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the temple of shelter, I bring forth

Evaporate into my ever-welcoming softness

Rest upon my armored chest

Soothe your woes with the weavings of safety

As I lace my fingers through your delicate thoughts

Nestle in my sincerity and bring forth the whole

Of your weeping mind

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the embrace I offer

Bear down your troubled truth

In endless streams of heartstrings

Birth into my stronghold the delicacy of your days

Outstretch the ancient avenues bleak

And allow me to catch each drop

Of your weeping pain

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the abundant kisses I place

Your dampened cheeks renewed

Emerge unburdened and unafraid

Ghost tears resolved

From my baptismal waters

Dip and rise as final fragrance, freed

Of your weeping secrets

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the devotional cradle I bring

Let timeless mysteries unravel

Fairy ribbons dance

As I inhale your palpable purity

A vulnerability announced and devoured

Inching into nectarous casing

Of your weeping body

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the caresses I lavish

Where ecstasy meets fantasy and nightmares dare not enter

Far from harm’s way

Demon memories shaved away, and countered justly

My sword hoisted as sign of my delivery

Forging through as gentle giant in heavenly forest

Of your weeping spirit

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the towering warrior I am

Breathe in the light rising out of this hollowed space

Lapped in the kindled-fire hues

Reflecting the heat you inspire

The appetizing scent you bleed

Assigned guardian

Of your weeping heart

 

Rest my lover, sweet

Behold the arms I spread

Bird to flight

Open the book of me

A child to leaping pages

Grant permission to put an end to empty words

Your healing right, laden with the salvation

Of my weeping love
