A Promise Claimed

I cast no shadow
When standing in your light,
My transparency
Refracts love’s wavelengths,
Illuminating secret pleasures
And lay bare my thoughts.

This radiance
Your passionate essence,
Reinforces my belief
That we are two in one,
A happenstance of singularity
Cast from the same mould.

And yet in truth
Compared to our mortality,
We have known one another
Just the briefest of time,
But why should we care of this
Our passions claim eternity.
