love’s velvet cheeks aching soft
to be kissed, and kissed.
Offer me your mouth,
let me break it open like a ripe fig
and feed upon the stars
burning in its dark, crimson sky.
Ever since you touched me
my words became vessels of fire,
fluttering like butterflies and kissing ecstasy
into every beautiful flower they meet.
Your breath whispers me into existence,
Your lips shaping the air give shape to my body,
burn me at Your will.
I invoke and call out your anger
so I may harness with my own body
your lightning bolts and rivers of fire.
Sink them in my skin…
Hidden in darkness, bitter wine turns sweet and fragrant.
Even though I don’t see it
I know it is out there,
the moon in the sky,
the face of my beloved.
