! Take Me!
take me! reclaim me!
o earth that has made me!
govern my being compleat
til you tame me,
your rhythms to keep,
your intents to pursue.
let me rise with the sun,
maybe cry with the dew,
may i rage with the thunder
and blaze with the noon,
and constantly change
like the face of the moon.
make my heartbeat to flow
with the pulse of creation,
govern each inflowing breath,
til the moment
you teach me to sleep.
then succombing with grace,
may i die in the winter,
by spring take my place
with the myriad ...
a sea inside of me rolls toward his shores,
an undulant assault upon his flesh,
a warmth of record summer heat explodes,
our bodies drown in satin sheets of sweat,
as moans escaped my lips in fevered breaths,
and sudden lust makes felt it's primal force.
we're tossed like jetsam on the ocean cast,
'til swells of passion hurl us to the floor,
