Throwback Friday: Oasis – Christine E. Ray

let our bed be an oasis
a sanctuary of soft pillows
and silk
warm jasmine scented air
in the desert of this modern life
let my skin touching your skin
be a balm for your weary spirit
my body a refuge for you
from all that is cold and alien
and other
let my mouth, my kiss
be an endless supply
of sweet refreshing nectar
when you are parched
from thirst
let us make and remake
home for each other in
this sacred place outside
of time and space
we are our own planet here
somewhere north of venus
west of mars
let this remain a place
where there is only you
and only me
our mingled breath
our heartbeats in rhythm
as we lay together
in a tangle of molten limbs
vulnerable
open
safe
