The eyes always expose 

what the lips won’t

My hymns of rapture 

hidden in hues of green and gold,

longing to be explored

 

If only to remember

 

the ache of desire

that keeps me awake at night

as my hands incite the words 

of your lyrical refrain

sending me over the edge 

 

If only to look a little longer

 

with your eyes closed

as you search for clues

on the canvas of my body,

hungry to amplify 

the crescendo of my cries

 

The hum of your salvation

 

If only to taste the secrets

on the tip of my tongue
