Shine and Retain

Tighten your hold

sweet embrace

I saw you on that stage

you touched a part of me

and I was trying to hide.

You shine and retain

every in of beauty you bless

us basic humans with

eyes that will touch deep

deep in our palms.

Yet, you isolated me

stranded in an oasis with

Aphrodite’s twin

touch of an angel

lips you’ll remember in deaths game.

and you’re still here.

Layer and layer of high beams

and you’ll prop me up,

and I’ll do the same

and will hold this planet up to our heels
