Only If…

In a

Perfect

World

I could

Live

Within

Your

Arms

Drown in

The warmth of

Your intellect

And get high

From the contact

Of your

Thoughts

In a perfect

World

I could indulge

In you

Drink from the

Fountain of

Your laughter

Drink from

The depths you

Possess and never

Thirst again…

In a perfect

World

I’d live

You during

The day and

Feel

You throughout

The night

Where you’d cruise

Through

Me

Unabandoned…

Unbothered…

Unafraid of

What the sun

May bring

In the wake

Of morning

When I turn

Into

You

And cling

To the

Simplicity of

Your

Reality…

In a perfect

World

I would be

Where

You are

And you’d

Be with

Me

Drifting

Within my

Soul

While I

Tell you

That everything

I am

Is

Yours.

Questions…

Trying to find

The answer

Through

Your touch

Through the

Flavor of your

Kiss

That sends

Shivers along

My spine

Plaguing my

Mind with images

Of my surrender

To you

Where I indulge

In the vernacular

Of your bodies

Language

As you languish

Savor

The melting

Of my soul

As you pour

Your desires

Within me

Trembling on

The very

Note of

Pleasure…

Still

I try to

Find the

Answers

The realities

To the

Questions

Of

You.

Constantly…

Thoughts of

You ravage

My brain

Causing me to

Still feel

You

Drowning within

The depths of

Me

Still

Feel

Your energy

Coursing through

My veins

While you

Pull at the

Hilt

Of my

Emotions

As I cling

To your reality

And submerge

Deeper into

The abyss of

Ecstasy

Desire…

Constantly

You ravage

My thoughts

Invade my

Sanity

Only to have

Me missing and

Wanting

Everything

You

Are

Once

Again…

I can

Hear the drums

Of my ancestors

Begin to

Beat within my head

As I spread my

Arms wide to

The sky

And I

Reach…

Twist…

Dance in

Sync with

The rhythms

Bestowed

Upon me

Through

My heredity

Proudly do I

Stomp

Proudly do I

Raise my

Voice to

The heavens

In celebration

Of whom

I am

Whom I am

To

Become…

Steadily

Do those drums

Play

The sound

Echoing

Throughout my

Every fiber

Reverberating

Through

My viens

And

I

Exclaim

“Freedom!”
