Beyond This Face

I listen to him breathe,
Trace his lips with mine.
There is no other Place,
Beyond this face.

I count to ten,
As I try to pretend.
There is no other place,
Beyond this face.

I pray that eternity is a friend of mine
Once careful paths begin to divide
There is no other Place
Above . . . Below . . . .Beyond this face.

I inhale the heat of each touch.
I see them watching me.
As I sway through the crowd.
Parting a sea.

There is no leaving
No loving but needing
There is no other place,
Beyond his face.
