Path Of Least Resistance

I smashed it down with love
this membrane between our souls
while you were weighing options
now your ointments lube my joints
ease my thinking into dancing
my kissing into a language…

I was at this same crossroad once
another century another countenance
something ephemeral irritates me, I hope
perhaps to rouse enough from all reverie
into waking to decipher your need

  1. I too love the “ease my thinking into dancing” line, alongside the concept of easing “kissing into a language” – so beautiful! Also the concept of waking to decipher another’s need… selfless sort of concept. Lovely.
