Gentle kisses brush this fear away;
Strong arms enfold me into safety,
Locking me into a fortress of steadfast keeping
Until the daylight seeps into the inky world
To kiss the awakening daisies
As your lips kiss my shoulders.

Leaning back into your chest,
Arms entwined,
Two clinging, two steadying,
We lie in this fiery dawn.
Hips to hips and legs entwined,
The sky is becoming our hearth.

Sighs of beauty,
Whispers of love,
The gentle breath of intimacy
Laces this morning mist
With hope.

We shift;
Closer than ever.

Now turning into you,
Eyes sleepily shut against
The reviving embers of yesterday,
Easing into a new day of growing promise,
I am encased in your arms
And held tightly.

The slow, deep, gentle thud
Of your heartbeat
Soothes my broken spirit
And kisses its snapped wings with precious salve,
As you feather my hair and my face with your lips.

I inhale
As you exhale,
Becoming woozy with the lack of oxygen.
You have become my every breath,
And should this fiery dawn become reality,
These wonderful arms shall bring me healing.
