Portrait Of Love As Eternal Sunshine

love is the desire whose embers never expire
burning stronger than life or death in hearts of fire
hotter than the hottest august turned september
& i wonder–as i wander where melodic whispers
of joy & pain meet night written on faces
of the sky caught between wrinkles of sunlight–
if i am a phoenix burning in hell today
or a sunflower flourishing from my own shadow
fearless of tomorrow, uprooting the silence
death leaves in limbo, taking off into moments
one by one, trying to touch time as though i were
afraid to forget the invisible music
that builds bridges always reaching beyond the graph
of mynd into the realms of eternal sunshine.
