498 Not as Far Away as I Thought. . . [10 August 2002]

I’ve wanted to fall
for so much of my life
that it’s possible
that it isn’t as far down
as I perceive it to be
for as I listen to my body
it speaks in a quiet whisper
whenever certain men are around
like this one man-child
when he is near me
a slight tremor
quietly shakes my pounding heart
I love meeting his eyes
as he talks to me
I want to lose myself in them
but I look away
when I’ve deemed contact
to be long enough
his voice stirs my soul
with a sweet gentleness
that rocks me to the core
and this other one
I feel hungry
when he walks into the room
my lips ache to taste his
my hands~to touch his skin
his eyes are an ocean blue
that makes my belly ache
wishing he could be the one
that either of them
would be my lover~
