>touch me

>

i wanna feel your wings sway
like a thick haze upon my heart
the moment i start to read 
it’s not your words i long for – it’s what you say
when i bend my head and drink letters like wine
and suck in your taste – enjoying your exhilarating sweetness on my lips
it’s the emotion you stir in me that i long for
gliding down stanzas – beaded like lovers pearls – with longing eyes 
and catching verses with my tongue like snow flakes
that tumble down drunken from a winter grey sky
leaving moist spots on my yearning heart
show me the places i wouldn’t find without you
and awake that kind of passion i didn’t know it was there
before you stirred it – in between lines of promising characters
pegged out like fresh smelling washing in the garden
caressed by golden rays of summer sun mysteries
i wanna get lost there and bury my glowing cheeks amongst your lines 
approach my soul with wings of pleasure and adventure
and take me with you on a flight across a land i didn’t see before
and we will glide on eagles’ wings – proud and majestic
above a secret territory that’s ours for the moment
i move closer to connect my heart to your words
which pass the customs control unseen
they don’t go detour – first brain – then soul
they go touch down and hit me like a meteoroid
and feed my soul with delicacy and leave me hungry for so much more
and i wanna read these rhymes again and again
and detect what it was, that unsettled my heart so badly
and made me wanna fall and drown in mesmerizing words
and what stirred emotions i didn’t feel before
and kissed my soul with arrogating lips
and alluring sweetness so i can hardly breathe
reach out for me poem and touch me
and wash all over me with lyrical love
that’s what i want you to do with every fiber of my soul
so stir my thirst – and still my thirst with satisfying words
and when i read the last line
i want my heart to pulsate – toc – toc – toc –  in the rhythm of your rhyme
