Free Verse # 116 (even though I don’t see your face)

Glistening wetness,
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.

~

O Beloved,
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.
