One And The Same

I know the power blooming inside just a single whisper. The dangers awaiting beneath the valleys of your skin, where handing over a heart and body have become one and the same. And I never quite say your name, I breathe and exhale it, the letters of your identity forever joined with mine. When I'm alone in the night, you become an incantation, a hushed prayer against the circling darkness, a sound caressing every particle of air, as if releasing you invokes a talisman. If my shape took on other forms, you would still be with me, a carefully patterned mosaic carved from sacred stones or etched into blessed glass panes. I know the force blooming inside just a single syllable. The dangers awaiting beneath the world in your hands, where giving over a heart and body have become one and the same. And I never quite say your name, I breathe and clutch it, any other proximity to your identity would never be close enough to me. When the sky has swallowed each star, you become luminescent, a prayer against the demons waiting, the sound painting atmospheres, as if invoking you harnesses a universe's raw essence. If my form turned shapeless, you would still be soldered to me, carefully joined to every particle in the air, every towering monument and sleeping relic. I know your name blooming from my parting lips can reach far beneath the valleys of your skin, where we have become one and the same.
