I'll Tell You on the Phone

I felt your body in a dream—

     the comfort and ease of my arms wrapped around you

as you use me as your lounge chair


     I can be your rock

     we can grow into a forest together 

I felt my hands along your curves

digging to your roots, I  

felt all the places I know

you've shown me here before

     I touch you like a flower

     as my fingers trace your spine

And I cherish the splendor

to what I have surrendered

to get to learn about your body for the first time,

every time,


and again

to whisper with praise 

beginning at your feet

while my eyes linger and dance with your hips

eager to tell the secret erupting from my lips

     anticipation builds

     longing destroys
