Before I touched you I wanted to love you Create a map to heaven on the span of your back Angel wings and lamb skin Natural like tree roots and honey We comb hours through gridlocked simplicity Kiss mountains of Sinai beneath twilight moons Crescents perched towards perfection Suckled moments of ecstasy Renewed dreams and cherished vows Exposed bare without hesitation We breathe sandalwood Clenched fists Closed eyelids Curled toes upon touch Traced Braille across your shoulders Kissed desire on your collarbone Found Jerusalem in your Bethlehem I am the Bast of your Ra You my Sekhmet Together we conquer Babylon Eshnunna Nippur Isin Eridu Ur Lagash Rapiqum fall upon your fingertips Heed the span of your Nile Oya secretes through your whisper We love in prophesy Layers delved in truth We love in space where there’s no existence of time Imperfectly perfect Just right for one another
