Lingering Longing for Sweetness

Long after
Want and need flee
Envy and jealousy wane
Slide of flesh on flesh ceases
Long after
Lingering longing
For sweetness of love
Becomes
Joy

Long after
Desire burns to embers
Pulsing blood slows
Edges wash to shorelines 
Long after
Lingering longing
For sweetness of love
Becomes
Joy

Long after
Sweat is dried and gone
Hair staid and silvered
Bed a place for sleep
Long after
Lingering longing
For sweetness of love
Becomes
Joy

Long after
Loss reverses to gain
Less reveals more
Hunters return home
Long after
Lingering longing
For sweetness of love
Becomes
Joy

Long after
Waters of memory
Lift and rush
Breathing warm and close
Long after
Lingering longing
For sweetness of love
Becomes
Joy
