fast in my memory

you are fast in my memory
     draped in lilacs and starsong
captive i
  am held by iron petals
my chain forged by desire

i have never known your name
   a day past can never come again
yet the boundless hope of Love am i

see me with the rose’s light
measure me by the star’s delight
but caress me only with the Truth
   this wanting my undoing
we both know it

but you hold me fast
   and i must set you free of my desire
thus uncaptive i
   sing lilacs and grow stars
      and find your name within
