I drink from the fountain of you greedily.
I curl up close to you and tell you exactly what I need, what I think, what I feel.
I whisper it; sometimes I roar it into your ear like a desperate prayer.
You love it. You honor it.
You honor me. You love me.
I curl up close to the roaring fire of your being and bask in your exquisite heat
I warm the chilly parts of my heart greedily
Not shyly at all.
For I am hungry for you, downright ravenous---and I am not afraid to show it.
I am not afraid to show just how much this love has me tangled up in the most delicious way.
I am not afraid to admit that you give me so much by being you
And I receive you with wide open arms.
For you fill the aching places in me that I cannot fill myself.
You are an ineffable river, an ever-flowing stream
And you drip your love into the chapped desert-like cracks of my heart that need it most.
I receive you. You receive me.
I give to you.You give to me.
I will never back away from
This that we share.
I need it, I need you.
For you, next to you, with you
I have laid my soul bare.
And in this nakedness, I have flourished.
We both have.
Drink from me, darling.
And I will drink from you.
Let us feed each other with the nectar of this love
Until we are so overflowing
That we almost cannot bear to taste joy this sweet
And when we are so full
Let us share this joy, this love, this innate force of blossoming creativity
With the world.
I thank you, my love.
I thank you from the deepest recesses of my soul.
Now, come closer.
I am hungry for you, downright ravenous---and I am not afraid to show it.
Let us feed each other with the never-ending nectar of this love.
