I SPEAK YOUR NAME

I speak your name, softly;

Gently;

Almost breathlessly;

I caress your very sound as you quietly leave my lips

And climb upon the playful breeze

My kiss will hold your name; My desire will seek your kiss,

And you shall always live in my heart.

 

The breeze grows stronger, transforms in the wind, calmly,

Steadily;

Refreshingly;

You cleanse me through your breath, I close my eyes

And see you, experience you,

My hand will hold you near,

My touch will seek your hand,

And you shall always enlighten my heart.

 

The wind increases to gale, not fiercely, but stoicly,

Brazenly;

Assuredly;

I scream your name to fuel your existence

And dance wildly in you throes,

My passion will breathe you deeply,

My wont will seek your passion,

And you will always fire my heart.

The gale relieves in tempest and returns an air of calm, peacefully,

Tenderly;

Serenely;

I speak your name in silence and embrace you as you rest,

My joy will hold your laughter,

My soul will seek your joy,

And you shall always know my heart is loving you

 

Each time I speak your name.
