|My love is both a hunger and a
A need to have and also to bestow,
A lavish lust for flesh
and yet a yearning
For beauty as austere as polished
I want more than my life your
And yet my happiness depends on you.
Like a child I
linger in your shadow
While like a parent I take you in my
I want to be the sun to fill your
While like a rose I open to your smile.
I want to be the air you
breathe, your music,
While like the sand I wait upon your
So like and unlike, my love is doubly
The joys of giving and receiving joined.
This day of love it
is my gift to you,
A heart you can consume yet keep
