Poem – “Dine with Me, Near” – Romance – 9/15/2020

My dear,
Dine with me, near,
And place your eyes close to the weight
Of the entire sun.
Dream magnificence,
Hold radiance
In arms that perch like burning birch,
And give to me your sweating glance,
Drowning the night’s waves
In heat.

Your love
Is a calm stupor.
I will guest you
In tomorrow’s morning
By lifting you
To see the remnants of the moon.
Hold your tongue,
And do not shout
Lest you spout
Eagerness, to sideways us.

I crave more
Inside your head,
For what a beautiful shine
Returns of your mind.

I wish
The world never knew disorder,
Drowning seconds
In harrowing hours.
I want the world
To know this radiance,
As a glance upon the sky,
To lift the midnight
From the world, and its fright.

Can we kiss the moon
To close us?
