TONGUING THE HEART, HOLD ME.

(For a beloved)

Osho Jeremiah

 

Beauty has a way of perforating through your skin and hiding joy in a part of my body & my lips curling around the taste of joy

 

What a way you keep mapping my chest that        you become a jesus in my earth/ doing my eyes the wonders of heaven

 

I want to laugh/ I want to break my teeth into the palms of your flesh/ I want this feeling become a meal in my throat/ your fingers showing me the way to blend the love

 

into digestion &

i beseech for the swirls of your tongue on my tongue / that wonders may not let my body wither before night falls

 

Simi knows of a boy, like me, seeking refuge in the eyes of butterflies and do not want to laugh today and unlearn how to laugh tomorrow/

 

she sang complete me that you do not forget / to remove the daggers buried in the hungry mouths of my heart

Spread the love
