Muse : a love poem

Updated on January 27, 2012

For that moment I was more.

You were every day sublime,

every word transcendent.

Ours was a balcony

and otherworldly pastorals.

We bathed in Love’s Philosophy,

as the chalky-white, chipped

porcelain tub caught the daylight

on cast feet tinged with gilt.

That night, unheard melodies

played about your nude form,

lit by the moon through airy drapes.

For that moment you were all I knew

and all I needed to know.
