"Making Love" at 3AM

Here's a poem that I created while reading John R.W Stott's The Message of Romans at 3 o'clock in the morning (and can't fall back asleep which I consistently do in the past couple of years, low blood sugar perhaps).

Chemistry (or Mystery) of Love

Your divine body
my frail body
as we lie side by
side in antinomy

i hugged my arms
You held me close
Your embrace
didn't crush my bones

Your very heart was dissolved
that i trembled and was forced
to adore, kneel and praise
Your glorious grace

Yet the mystery

Note: lie side by side is not from EE Cummings but from Stott (p.251)
