How Close Is Too close?

Heaven is….
your breath
on my skin 
your eyes dilating the closer you get 
being entwined with you
in the corner of a kingsize bed

closer 
how close, is too close? 
Does it matter?

you speaking to me
& through me
cupping your face 
& watching your walls come down 

exchanging secrets
giving & taking boldly, unabashedly
revealing our weaknesses

wanting
it to last forever
knowing 
it can’t last forever 

accepting this moment of pure symbiosis is a blessing 
strangers
but in this moment you mean everything 

heaven is an earthquake
I felt aftershocks the moment you left
