The everlasting ephemeral

I can close my eyelid down, blocking out the light
assuredly feeling still the heat of the day
each second a never ending connection to all before and after
hunting to sleep in a cradle of calm waves with nowhere to fade away
I can close my emotional center, blocking out heart beats
hazarding to voice the emptiness of every commitment’s entirety
but you are with me every second diverting my attention from feather to clay
to a small spot where nothing is hidden
not even the unbelievable notion
that only the warmth of your intimacy alone can save the day
Where did you come from, how can this be
the only blink of happiness is my vulnerability
A kiss so deceiving
Seconds trapped in ignorance yet fleeting
Closing my eyes so the flavor can’t leave me
Closing my heart to prevent internal bleeding….
