Enlighten Me - Poem by Annette Arkema

Touch me with a fiery passion burning out of control.
Lay down beside me as if two are the river that flows.
Kiss me with the taste of nectar on our tongues.
Love me like a field in the afternoon sun.
Hold me as a childhood nursery rhyme.
Hear me as my heart beats softly in time.
Help me heal the pain and sorrow suffered before.
Take me to the island of your destination ever more.
Leave me in the arms of your gentleness.
Teach me to accept this heavenly bliss.
Read me a love so kind and true.
Let me fall asleep next to you.
