Opening Petals of Want

you touch me
and I fall away 
to nothing

breaking apart
into a thousand
petals of want 

I am as bewitched 
as the trail
that lies beneath
your hand

sing through my blood
and I am wrought,
with my need
to list into you

at just a touch 
I need to inhale 

you breath life
into every molecule
to overflow my spirit
and in the essence 
of love 

I lay in want
of the masters

and to fall as petals
at his feet


Entered in Catie Lindsay's Competition 
Fanning the Flames 

Gained 1st Place
