Lover, crawl from caution and bitten tongue
for reticence is the unspoken sin,
each longing unquenched, each fantasy wrung
bring to me now, let rapture begin.
Secrets I will lavish with oil and salt,
doubt I will ravish as pleasure I give,
a nearer heaven will hear you exalt
as you unclench your heart, finally live.
Broach the world with that reserved façade
but what you conceal I would freely grant,
bare desires, let passion ride roughshod
and devotion will enslave and enchant.
There is no shame in flesh, in need or lust
when flesh meets soul and fear submits to trust.
For Debbie Guzzi’s Song to Poem Contest Inspired by: I would Do Anything for Love by Meatloaf Note: Theme is fantasy and trust .. and trust in fantasy... highly romantic and erotic... ; ) Hope I captured that here.
