I Want... - Poem by m.karriem saleem

I want...
2 drink the essential of life from your navel.
I want...
2 hear the stimulation of your soul.
I want...
2 touch the sound of your heart.
I want...
2 b fed the breast milk of your knowledge.
I want...
2 bathe n your love.
I want...
2 b clothesed n your kiss.
I want...
2 smell your spoken words.
I want...
2 dance n your laughter.
I want...
2 live eternally n your eyes.
I want...
2 b baptisted n your smile.
I want...
2 b taught spirituality from your womb.
I want...
2 find life n your touch.
I want...
2 swim n your veins.
I want...
2 b just with u! !
I want...
2 tell u the words that I can't say,
r written n ink.
My pen is the voice of my heart.
