ecstasy, non-conforming

ecstasy, non-conforming

we looked into

each other’s eyes

to catch up the sea,

surmised infinity.

we felt the pull,

and held long

the gentle lull of death,

broke the hands

that wound us into dream,

likened the lure of a stellar scheme,

where we, breathlessly,

called upon molten kisses

and opened the asylum doors.

it was there that the buildings

fell, beautifully slanted,

as our bodies ceased

to take for granted

the mystery.
