We hide inside our separate corners 
Waiting for the arrival of a sound 
To set our feet upon the ground 
Patient for an invitation 
Smoldering in the silence 
Melting through the barrier 
Say it before I do 
And shatter these illusions 
Unsheltering the veiled mind 
Reach through and touch it 
Reach through and taste it 
On the surface of my lips 
Feel with me this collapse in time 
Pulling the end and beginning 
Into a singularity of intensity 
Forever expanding in an eternity 
Of pleasured sonancy 
Feel the coursing of this heated blood 
The rush to centers of release 
To color the sky in every shade 
To see right through the masquerade 
The expanding passage of the eye 
Pulling me deeper and deeper 
To rest inside the quiet hush 
Of crossing what we make of lines 
The path I walked while searching 
Clouds washing across the moon 
Symbolized, averted gazes 
Taking me through endless mazes 
Bolder becomes my step 
The force is flowing stronger 
No, not a moment longer 
Reach through…
