Forty Years

Your name rests upon my lips Gentle and delicate And completely at home Breathing out, you become a whisper Breathing in, you intoxicate me Whispers and heady rushes cascade Across my skin I’ve become alive and real Swallowing you, my belly swells For you are my manna and sweet honey I am completely satisfied by […]
