Wishes and Kisses



I wish you here to soothe a primal fear
I wish you here brimful of tingling firecracker thoughts
I wish you here on a blanketed balmy evening with all possibility before us
I wish you here to kiss me in the morning
I wish you here with a vast hand spread eagled cradling my cheek
I wish you here to feel a mouth migrating to a neck, palms matched
I wish you here breathing me in, filling your lungs with scent for a long cold winter
I wish you here as piercing diagonal sleet sweeps across the landscape
I wish you here to escape the poorly of soul and tired of mind
I wish you here to bottle thoughts with exquisite memory
I wish you here pacing around me like a wary wild thing
I wish you here while the creaking floorboards of my soul ache at the movement of my memories
I wish you here to provide a brow stroke, a hand squeeze, a sign
I wish you here to catch a string of opaque pearls on your cotton sleeve
I wish you here as two souls in the night search for the truth and the words to give it wings
I wish you here to reap the truth from the fields of fear
I wish you here feeling forlorn, lovelorn
I wish you here with reassuring words swimming through warm air docking on sad earlobes
I wish you here to see confusion give way to clarity, paper covers rock
