birds fly through the sky
as in my heart our love always resides
and mistaking a beat or two
for a remedy made of oranges that are blue
in an afternoon of love-making
combined with two souls partaking
in each other, hand in hand
and as I gasp, before the rendering is complete
a task comes true
as I transfix my gaze in a helios of pain
I remember the love of yours that always comes through
to me, from you
