As I taste the sweet honey it envelopes my soul.
I frolic through the fields in bliss now knowing that all will be well now.
I have found my rose among the rubble.
We embrace feeling and feeding each other's souls, minds, and bodies.
We are renewed in each other's passion.
Is this what I searched for,
for what must have been an eternity?
I tremble as we come together.
Do I dare give all myself forever?
Can I truly be all that you need?
I love and hunger for you.
You are all that is right in the world.
Divine beauty personified.
Hesitation, a single tear.
You stare into my eyes.
I know once again that all will be well.
I take you and it is bliss.
To let go now would be remiss.
Take me, take me.
Never let go again.
