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 once more in case you don’t know it.

    ‘I will chant your name
    A hymn to aching distance
    Until all latitude means nothing
    Only lines to score desire’
    Absolute perfection! ❤

    Such lovely poetry. I remember this well, it is the first poem I happened on at your blog and as I recall I brought it home with me to the House of Heart, I loved it that much.
