Firmament

flammarion

You kissed me through the firmament
Although I could not see your face…
I felt your lips, a love transmitted
Through time and space

Our hands traced each other’s
Silky smooth circles, slippery grasp
I felt your heat, fire of a forever flame 
Ignited by a gravity inexplicable in force

Pressed our bodies together
Film separates our carnal desires
But not the pulse, the breath…sustained
A torturous dance incomparably intense

And as my heart found yours,
We beat in unified cosmic signals
A message sure to echo across
Planets in vast distant galaxies

O, to slice through this barrier
To release my love full force
For the almost having…
An unbearably cruel farce

    1. Thank you, Ken. It’s a picture in the public domain of an engraving titled “La Flammarion” 1888. I don’t know too much about it but it’s a favorite of mine…I have a leather cover for my Kindle with this embossed in it. 😊
