Knocking on Your Door - a Poem
“I removed all the doors to our love, so you can’t lock yourself away from me. But I didn’t stop there. I also replaced the doors with metal detectors, so I could fondle you more efficiently, like the highly trained professionals do who run airport security. ” ―Jarod Kintz
Hey Darling, I’m knocking on your door
You’ve said if I wanted you, just knock
I’ve knocked three times,
I don’t wanna be banging on the floor.
C’mon Baby, open the door you see
I’m firing up, I wanna jump on you
I wanna be with you, that’s where I wanna be
So hear my knocks, don’t you want me?
Here we are in my thoughts, you and I
We’re climbing, sliding atop double rainbows
Running wild and free in the fields over fresh grass
Hundreds of ‘em, cupid’s copper red arrows flying by.
We lay on the ground, no soft flannel blanket to spread
Our bodies well entwined like an aged tree’s vine
Wet kisses followed like morning’s misty dew, then you said,
Don’t worry Hon, the day is new, it’s too soon to end.
Beneath the marshmallow clouds, no intention to refrain
The merging of thirsty hearts blessed by a shower of rain
Then a little bunny came sweetly kissed both my feet
I whisper in his ear, “tell him my bunny, he is driving me insane.”
Now, I want to only cuddle and cradle you in my arms
‘Til like a baby you fall asleep, your silky hair brushing my cheek
So dear Darling, tell the honey bees you love me every day
But take all things slowly dear girl, a scruffy-winged butterfly warns.
