Promise

blackness drips off of me
yet it appears to you I am bathing in gold
I reach for the night as silky dreams dissipate
heavy drapes keep the bedroom pitch
royal purple flecks of sunlight
keep the heat in, amethyst
set in copper conducts our
electricity, static lightening
between sheets, we melt into
tungsten tears
our bodies become one
convulsing in connected
shudders that unite us both
under a single
promise
