(the union of heaven and earth)
Did you know that blood can burn, love?
And lightning race through veins
That stars inhabit the center of eyes
And immortality exists in the rain?
I cannot fathom the depths of your eyes, love
I cannot fathom the depth of you
There’s a lightningbug in my hands, love
Its light glows soft and true
My starry bower is yours, love
Then descend upon my dream!
I confess this aching madness, love
In my heart you reign supreme.
Come to me tonight, love
We shall mingle as lovers do
So I followed your rosy will, my love
And charted a course to you.
Come romance the burning flame, love
I drank the molten lead.
You are part of the stormy sky, my love
I struck and the firmament bled.
Entwined we are a force, love
I end where you begin.
Nothing dares compare to you, my love
The fire burns within.
Cheeks damask, your face in bloom
Blood of the rose, blood of the moon.
Rain drenched, we danced to creation’s tune.
China Rose, Ruddy Moon.
