“Your Sweetest Flavor” – Poem

By

Like two petals, crossing over

The other.

Like one flavor, the sweetest in my mouth,

Better than the flavor of sugarcane,

For your eyes have the entire world within view.

Your eyes, and your cries,

Have my universe to behold.

Love takes form,

And will take form,

Upon what nectar, what sweetness

You drop from between pillars of white.

Sweetness,

From a majesty above me.

Ambition is fallen away

From the shallow parts of me.

And I taste life,

Before life.
