an ode to Desire

my yearning, my desire, my luscious shimmering thing

be vanquished and vanquish me

be enchanted and enchant me

be mesmerized and mesmerize me

nibble me softly

and devour me whole

blaze me with your warmth

blaze me to the soul

occupy the whole

longing house of my want

mark me with your

honeysuckle scent

florescence in my cupped hand

my yearning, my desire, my luscious shimmering thing
