Longing for Immortality (Vesta Bliss)

My life is a spiral staircase
circling my spine

at only a slight incline
Accidentally activated
an awareness unawaited
I know what it is

but you wouldn't believe me
if I told you

When I look in your eyes
when I see your smile
I long to unfold you
for my soul to have known you
my body to hold you

in Love everything is Ascetic
in fear nothing is
there is nothing impure
in my sexual bliss

In fact its cosmic union
metaphysical communion
how universes are created
how this one was first animated

You could not break your vow with me
I could never be an enemy
I am the promise kept
I am the tears that Joshua wept

I see it as devotion to the source
when I am in that place I am the force
physical acts of worship that God endorsed
but if I lay beside you I will not invite you
I will resist all desire to ignite you
I will respect your truth unless
you reach for me then I will know
we have been blessed
