I Want

FCF38573-2929-4C13-B491-12CD9E788FD0I Want

I want
to write more than words
that say I love you.
I want
to write poetry that fills
your heart with ecstasy,
your mind with wonder,
your body with burning desire.
I want
to write words
which move your eyes to tears,
fill your ears with the sweetness
of the loon’s lonely cry.
I want
to write of moments
you’ll remember more than a memory.
I want
to be the adventure
about to be taken,
the kiss of your lips’ longing.
I want
to be the dream your soul dreams
as you lay naked in your sleep.
