Tell me you want me.
Tell me you want me in as many ways
as a woman can want a man.
Tell me you want me so bad you
move and burn
in your fragrant skin -
Tell me you crave me kinetically,
the way my bike lusts to lunge along the road
and thrust us together
with the force of its acceleration.
Tell me you to want me so
you'd commit crimes to be with me.
Tell me you want me so bad
you have no fear, no inhibitions,
you want no others.
Tell me you want me the way trees demand
the way the ocean must fill its bed,
the way Earth and Moon are drawn to one another -
inescapable yet individuals...
Tell me you want me like gravity, like the elements;
like fire wants oxygen, like mountains want the sky,
like night wants day.
I want you.
It's dangerous and beautiful,
it's heartache and silken joy,
and oh, how I want you.
