Pleading Salvation, the Savior is Saved

come to me
take me higher
take me to a mountain
climb us to the top
strip me to my skin
let the cold wind stretch it taut
let the cold wind pull us closer
let the closeness steal our breath
reach into the dark of mem’ry
find a moment in the light

streak and smear the fading instants on my flesh
paint in circles – paint in circles on my chest

tell in patterns on my skin
the path of stories never lived, then
light the match and send me burning
light the match and send me burning

into dawn.

[ in the east, a sun is rising, slowly rising
. i can feel its heat expanding in my chest
. ]
