It just seems

that when

I search for beauty in life

my thoughts shift

instantly to you.

Time will cease

to matter

though seconds

never cease to tick off—

so that now

you will live in my verse

so go ahead

and love me, use me,

inspire me, abuse me

I really won’t mind

if the boomerang

jettisons back the other way

what we have is special

but it could also be magic

a mystical alchemy of souls

grasping one another

in quest for the great secrets

and this grand wrestling match

between my ambivalent thoughts

flickers with a lucid light
