I want to spend my days with you,
purchase a lifetime’s worth of kisses,
and invest my poetry
in your womb.
I want to donate my soul to you,
create one charity from our two bodies,
and awake two doves of peace
in your breasts.
I want to make love to you,
delight in our chaotic artistry,
and breathe a call for rebirth
in your moans.
I want to run away with you,
dwell in the circumference of our love,
and incite an unflinching stillness
in your feet.
I want to hold your hand,
release love with every breath,
and cleanse the Earth in the open palm
of our union.
