brightness of desire

couple-bakehouse-oct2013[from Misconfigurations of Love – poetry]

the brightness of this day
could only be increased
by your smile
as my heart leaps
towards
my idea
of you
i can escape this
desire
perhaps
by not venturing
flirting and vaulting
dialing back
the intensity
but i want heat
the potential for fire
that burns away
this ache
crisps the rough edges of the past
and sands them away
with frequency
and fever
and friction
and you
the brightness of this day
alone
is still beautiful and full
and I am wondering
about you
and your fire
your heart
s
desire
