Epic Journey of Understanding

Take pause for just a moment my love,

My desire compels me to request humbly

That you impart an allotment of time,

Such a window of unadulterated peace

One where only you and I shall partake

I beseech you to listen to meaningful words

Compelling imagery to captivate you completely

‘Twould be a moment that cannot be reproduced

Take positioning and do not stir nor depart

As your beauty compliments the surroundings

Slip into an ethereal meditation of pure emotion

One laden with interpretive visions of language

For tis a tale of wonderment I’ve to share

Where worlds merge for brief precious moments

Sights unseen make themselves visible

Colors shifting with hues yet unimagined

Faded spaces populate with sudden vividness

Plain sight prevailing over things previously hidden

Consciousness awakened, perhaps perpetually

‘Twas a night eternally etched in memory

When moonlight bathed the landscape

Stars contrasted against an endless sea of ebony

And everything radiated a previously unrealized serenity

An eve whenst that which was divine became accessible

Cumulative slips of time paused for admiration

Racing celestial objects slowed occasionally

Distant galaxies shared ambient illuminations

Moments escalated into aeons of wonderment

Spoken words perhaps lost

Transformed in an eloquent moment of stillness

Somehow their message conveyed in regard

Alone perched atop a gentle hillock

My mind completely open and heart willing

Physically aware of my separating spirit

As if this moment was one of anticipation

Consuming the plentiful magickal energies

Succulent sweetness; nearly reaching the perfection

Of that revealed in your tender kisses

Boundaries no longer impenetrable

The lengthy wait and the finality of achievement

Crashing silence of the veil being lifted

Gossamer threads no longer sewn

Sudden amazement by complete immersion

Aureate, glancing, gleaming light

Prismatic, translucent, spectral luminosity

Iridescent waves glinting and coruscating

Saturation absolute and awe-inspiring

Yet without any need to shutter my sight

Beautiful in appearance and eternal in memory

As if I was looking deep into your eyes

Coaxing intoxication from their loveliness

The growing silence of emptiness

An abrupt suddenness of expectation

Erupting with a hushed rushing

Building quietly in a crescendo of purity

Symphonic selections nearing perfection

Chords collected from across the universe

Threads slipping from above to braid and weave

Tapestries to delight all things aural

A gentle and serene sweetness

Previously only heard by my ears

In our whispered moments of intimacy

As my senses heightened to peak levels

Expectations no longer able to calculate

What if anything still remained

My detached spirit swimming

Frolicking in the energy reservoirs

Diving, splashing, and absorbing

Illuminated scented flavors of sound

Completely engaged on every level

Elementally, spiritually, and cosmically

Breathless and captivated

By nothing more than a momentary moment

A temporary stoppage of time

Yet, my thoughts remained only with you

Pondering these amazing surroundings

Searching for the singularity

That one thing that encompasses everything

That which could possibly hold sway

Over the shared emotions and feelings

Of the eternal love between you and me
