another oldie (rewritten)

TERRA PROHIBITA

you are the land
that can never be mine
you are the mountains and the valleys
rivers of coffee and honey
desired
unreachable

you are the stars
on my sleepless night’s sky
sun rising over uncharted territory
that I can’t explore
can not inhabit

you are so far away
yet so close
that I can feel your heartbeat

and I long
to draw the map of you
with my fingertips
with my lips
