Return to the Heart

I will fall asleep naked and hot

with the lullaby kisses

you planted on my cheeks, neck, lips and wherever else my bare skin let you leave behind your spore prints.

Pink flushes of renewed energy

manifest in the night

covering my now luminescent body

reclaiming what was once lost to a desert of grief, mistrust and lust.

Survived the hall of mirrors

and now I thrive in the chambers of the heart

finally cracked open

so I may fall asleep in the safety of the earth

that covers your hands and feet

fertilised by the nutrients of serendipity

then wrapped around my naked vulnerability

can you believe what we’ve conceived?

I will fall asleep naked and hot

reunited with my heart.
