lash to lash

bury me in the sky
high above the earth
into the atmosphere

roll me in the clouds
near the sun
without caution

i will melt
i will boil
but i will not feel the pain

scoop out my heart
and see for yourself
how it thrums
with your touch

i can taste how close
your face is to mine
lash to lash
i have not eaten
but i am full from your kiss
