i had cremated my ashes long ago.
the river of time had swallowed them,
and i was lost forever.

then your eyes blinked.
the edge of your smile fell on
and all stopped.
the currents froze,
gave up the dead.
the ashes soared.

blood, the red blood swells.
sweat drips.
heart races.
fingers grope.
musk squirms.
night ferments.
day dazes.

fist squeezes.
eyes shut in silent prayers.
knees surrender.

you rise and my world dances and rolls on.
i don't want to die again.
