My knees give way
For me, to be
Beneath you, and hold you this ring
All that I have sent
Up to you,
In the blue, in the daylight.
Your lips whisper a kind serenity
Down to me,
For me to see, what will come to be
Love is everywhere.
I have centered it
Upon the waist needed to be carried
In a single hand.
My lips run across smooth skin,
My hands paw naked skin,
My eyes travel warm skin
To discover years worth of paradise,
Befitting me, the parasite
Who has only sucked the vessel dry
Of himself, and neither the fingers, succulent,
Nor the temples above her eyes, resplendent
Of a woman,
With two beating hearts, one of hers
And of mine.
