For Eternity

If, only if,
There was nothing in the world but you.

Your dewdrop palms, dripping warmth from their cores
Rubbing calluses–reminiscent of bygones–ridding my body of troubles,
Sunrise eyes, horizon eyelids, coloring my blank universe
In their extravagant radiance, radiating better times…
Sky to chest, just fine, fingering sighing blades of grass
Wet to the touch under the stroking sunlight,

If, only if,
The world could forever freeze here.

Statue wrists, angled towards each other
Curled cement fingers aching from their stiff movement
Breaking themselves to reach out to the other,
This thick air, it smothers the cobwebbed crevices,
One too gray, one too stubborn, to each their own
But know, they don’t need anyone but each other.

If, only if,
There was nothing in the world but you
and me.
