Loving Again

Last night
we loved as if the gods
had announced only to us
that the sky would fall while we slept.
We loved
passionately
selflessly
thinking only of pleasure
giving pleasure,
and I knew I would not grieve
if life should end as you held me.
Daybreak.
The sun slid silently
into our room
kissed our faces
and lay softly
in our love bed.
The sky had not fallen.
The earth had not disappeared.
We were alive
to love again.
