Chant your name

Chant

I will chant your name

The chords beneath my fingers
no longer break the silence
with words I cannot find.
Only hunger resonates.

I will chant your name,

I will chant your name
in this night of endless yearning,
drowning in the echoes
yet thirsty beyond belief.

I will chant your name

Your eyes have held me captive
Starved me without thinking,
crucified my days.
Yet our suffering is the same.

I will chant your name

I will chant your name
A hymn to aching distance
Until all latitude means nothing
Only lines to score desire.

I will chant your name.

Your body will dance before me
a vision of solemn beauty
numbing me with need.
A longing beyond your golden skin.

I will chant your name

I will chant your name

I will chant your name …

If you have read my untidy word juggling, you will know this. But I like it. So here it is again in case you don’t know it.

    My favorite line, “A hymn to aching distance,Until all latitude means nothing.” I love that latitude can be read multiple ways, as in distance or as in scope of allowed freedom/movement. I like to read it the last way which makes it especially poignant in light of your predilections. 😉
