my heart pounds and I

reach beyond the heights of our love

into space beyond

the stars twinkle

laughing gently as they

begin to spell our names with their light

how often have the gods

envied the love which has

settled within our souls

one kiss from you

and the earth trembles

one look from you

and my heart erupts

with molten lava

what shall happen

when our souls converge

when two become one

and destiny begins
