Covered In You

No moon tonight

but everything bursts,

jewels in the firmament.

You have become

my meditation,

the night shining

on your skin

like lightening.

In these moments

we are eternal.

Let me caress you

like water flowing

through my hands.

I speak of you draping

my rubied lips with love,

just as the sky glints in rivers.

You fill my mouth

with dancing angels.

Somewhere across my being

a moaning lingers.

Something leaving a trace

of its passing.

Heart to heart,

folding and unfolding,

expressing boundless affection.

Have you seen the blossoms

among the leaves,

between flesh and flesh?

Tasting the sweet salt of skin

with a furtive lick of the tongue.

You open your mouth

and out falls moons,

disquieted by a yearning.

Salve on wounds we cant erase.

This is a truth known by our bones.

Fireflies wink and glow in the elms,

constellations of memory.

Such shocks of delicacy,

singing the dark away,

breaking open into light,

my shape covered in you.

Melissa Fry Beasley is a Humanistic poet of Cherokee origin, who resides in Oklahoma . Through the written and spoken word, she examines the gap between the ideal and the reality involved in living in the world during this time. Her work is both personal and subjective, yet she does not turn aside from the political and social issues of her environment. She is a woman who seeks to express her individual perspective and needs while accepting the diversity involved in questions of gender, race and culture. Melissa believes that change is necessary and deploys her writing to reflect her personal experience in the wider social and political context. You can find her work in print and online in Indian Country Today Media Network, Native News Today, The Native American Encyclopedia, FirstPeople.Us, Working Effectively With Aboriginal People, Churn Magazine, Big River Poetry Review, Enhance Magazine, A&U Magazine, and many others. She has two chapbooks forthcoming. " When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator." Mahatma Gandhi " They won't break me because the desire for freedom, and the freedom of the people, is in my heart. The day will dawn when all the people of will have the desire for freedom to show. It is then that we will see the rising of the moon." Bobby Sands
