The Persian Boy

 

May 14, 2005

Eyes
So wide
they make
You dive
Inside
And swim in their
Watery zeal

Lips
So full
Pressing
Eager kisses
Here and there

Hands
Big and clumsy
Searching
Desperately
Their purpose

Chest
Hard and flat
Rising and falling
To the rhythm
Of mirrored
Desire

I can still
Taste the
Hurried neediness
Of your tongue

The longing
For approval
Buried in every
Move of your body.

I yearn to
Hold you
Once more
In the happy
folds of my emptiness
And hush
Away your fears.
