Let your lips graze over mine with the gentleness of your soul
the fingers of your heart reach out and touch mine
the fire that burns in your eyes set ablaze the embers of my being
your being inspire my being myself
every breath you take fill you with life.
Let us love each other today,
love me with each blink
let us soak in this season of love
Seek the bits of you embedded in my soul,
forever mine; even if today is the only forever we know
find me in the deepest darkest corners of your heart
let my love light up the darkness.
they don’t stand a chance.
Not today, as we lay here, our naked legs intertwined.
My demons, well;
they fled at the sound of your laughter
Yes. Divine, me and you,
Fingers interlocked, cradled in the nest of your chest.
Divine, God is with us today.
So, love me today
Speak tongues only my heart comprehends
Dream dreams only my soul can conceive
Smile, my love; laugh
Throw caution to the wind
Let it float away with our fears and differences;
today we are one.
Blossom before me, like a rose in its prime
Today is your season;
so just like the mangoes in December, ripen for me
Like a virgin, let me touch you for the first time
I know you’ve been kissed before,
but let my lips kiss your soul in ways unbeknownst to you
Let us sway to the unfamiliar rhythm of love
give ourselves to the beat
let loose and let the climax find us at the edge of the cliff
Jump with me, Baby
Trust me, love’s the softest landing
And we don’t have to land if you don’t want to
We can soar into the endless skies
