This Passionate Communion


I bring the delicacy
to my lips
and breathe in its
presence,
the hint of steam
and the scent
immediately swimming
in my bloodstream,
finding my heart
and rocketing
its adrenaline magic
throughout
my body.

I am brought out
of the gray silence
into a fresh new dimension,
a secret garden,

and I am unashamed
at my gluttony,
but that naked vulnerability
I share with only you,
liberates me
and I unravel
like a morning glory,
petals unfolding
to catch every bit
of life from above.

I cannot,
nay, will not
stop this
passionate
communion.

You are here
bringing me life
and my response
is ravenous
and messy
and unrestrained;
I never feel more alive.

Now, bring that canister
of aerosol frosting over here
and let’s tear the roof
off this sucker.

  15. There are a couple of ways to interpret this, and either one could be complemented by aerosol frosting...though I prefer non-aerosol for the sake of the environment.
