Perhaps I Did Not Mention It, But.... - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

I want you
the way a starving man
wants food
to have you look upon me
with those eyes
that could drink
a person's soul
you are joyous life itself
I want you to fill me completely
more so
than any being ever has
I will accept you
every dropp I can hold
of your light embodied
letting it suffuse every part of me
every particle
every cranny
I crave your touch
the one that makes life burst inside me
quivering with pleasure
in its glorious sweetness
I want to revel in it
to dance and sing
to simply lie back
and let you roll through me
over me
this passion I have for you
pulses through me
stronger than heart-blood
