Dance Here

i see your body dancing, talia.
like your heart & its beat,
it’s dancing to the chimes
of my gestures.
talia, there is no mountain of loathe
that can trammel
the nexus of this bond,
neither is there any river of prejudice
that can drown the sprout
of this devotion. take me into the sanctuary
of your love, talia.
take me in your swathe of  tintinnabulation,
so we can conglomerate into a testament of euphonies—
a chronicle of sweet songs.
