Primed

Your words
are the stars

that hover over me
in the dark of night

even when silence
blankets,

I hear you

in their twinkle
— an I love you

written in stardust

I feel you
in my blood
that warms

at the thought
of your inhaling
kiss

I lose my breath
at just the mere
picture of you
in my mind
— near me

a power
I cannot
deny

…not my body
…not my soul

purely visceral

I gasp
at the sky
primed
to receive
you
