Road Map

I wanna grab hold
of you
it’s not about
ownership
it’s about miracles
and passion that leaves legs
         trembling
I want to see the places I’ve been
marked out
on your skin
like a road map
         love note
         work of art
bearing witness
to atoms meeting
at perceived barriers
and crossing over
like how you make your way
slowly
into the naked pink depths
of my mind
all my raw desires
spread wide

and you touch me there
         pressing
leaving my thoughts, after
         pulsing
around those moments
purple and aching, sweet
