sheath

i want

that you tread softly

through my mind body soul

that you breathe my

heartbeat

and cup my

pulse between your hands

like water

from the fountain

that you rim my

edges and

trace my shadow

pursuing the

echo of laughter

in my eyes tears and ghost

i want

that you peer into the pools

of starlit corners

and light the lamp

on the left side

find the room

explore its depths

make its possibilities

concrete in your being
