The Wedding of Putra & Melia - studio 8 bali -

I would like to watch you,
sleeping. I would like to sleep with you, to enter
your sleep as its smooth dark wave slides over my head

and walk with you through that lucent wavering forest of blue green leaves
with its watery sun & three moons towards the cave where you must descend,
towards your worst fear

I would like to give you the silver branch, the small white flower,
the one word that will protect you from the grief at the center of your dream.
I would like to follow you up the long stairway again
and become the boat that would row you back carefully,
a flame in two cupped hands to where your body lies
beside me, and you enter it as easily as breathing in

I would like to be the air
that inhabits you for a moment
only. I would like to be that unnoticed
& that necessary.
