rhyme on a dime

becoming

BECOMING

I wait for you,
in an odeum of passion
built by you.

Your kisses,
thoughtful caresses,
radiant heat,
tempering me
breaking through
my gaurding varnish,
my veneer of strength.

Your essence
rises like a mist
between us
snagging my senses,
pulling me
halfway to where you are.

Seconds before
my purple inferno abates,
you take me completely,
tunneling through the years
of defenses
uncorking a geyser.

A floodgate of sensations
releasing me,
freeing me,
to love again.
