let me

let me love you
the way a man should be loved
fierce like a summer storm
but tender
as the heat
rising from the dirt

let me devour you
with kisses
intoxicating you with desire
and healing you with my touch

let me map your body
tracing your skin
north
south
east
and west
feasting on the salt of your earth
and drinking from your rivers

let me open myself up
and swallow you
whole
i will protect your heart
and if you let me
i will show you a love
that will take your fucking away
