I want to taste the deepest
quietest parts of you.
I want you to let yourself flow
over me like rain.
I want to savor the texture of
what I discover within.
I want to feel your breath on my ear
as you say my name.
I want to trace lines upon your skin
with the tips of my fingers.
I want you to feel through my touch
the way that I feel about you.
I want to touch your lips with mine
while you are speaking.
I want to inhale your words
and take them into me.
I want to breathe your breath
and breathe mine back into you.
I want to be so close
that I actually hear your heart beat.
I want wrap you in the cradle of my arms
and hold you while you give yourself to me.
I want to listen to your voice enraptured
delighted by the sounds that you release.
I want to take you deep inside of me
and see your eyes light up as you recognize me.
