sleep not by my side

sleep not by my side.
caress this fragile body
not with your hands
but with your soul.

I feel I am light
a wind blows through me
particles penetrate my skin
I sublimate them

only my consciousness remains
like a subtle diamond
uncarved and latent
filtered into this body

so touch this shell
not with your hands
which can crumble me
as surely as a crisp Autumn leaf
but touch me with your
mind, your soul
infinitely bright
caresses of pure
gently shimmering fire
like a musical tone
held so long it becomes
infinite, and infinity
vibrates with the music of us.
