desire, 092101

i have stumbled over these words
a thousand times
changed the rhythm
the method
the delivery
the rhyme
but find that the meaning is inevitably clear
no matter which way it is said
the truth still adheres:

i want you

want you to find your poetry in me
to translate my heart though melody
and pronounce the same phonetically

i want you
to stimulate me
without ever needing your touch

i want you

there is no easier way to say it
and the advances i relay portray it
it not hidden
nor forbidden
unless another wants you identically

if so
she need not react to my confession violently
i was simply unaware of your emotion identity
whether you were committed by bondage
or taken hostage
or if you truly enjoyed being captive to her kiss

if that kind of ecstacy between the two of you exists
i will honorably retreat

warehouse this adamant affection
like some age-old remedy
waiting for you silently
until you feel the time is right

and though that time may not be tonight
let it be known

i want you
