Be My Poem

Let your spirit fill me
with delicate expressions,
dictating a romantic ballad,
holding on to adjectives
slipping from your tongue
in sweet rhythm
cascading                        into my ears
as water folding over us.
Let your hands hold
verbs and nouns,
us as pronouns,
beginning and ending
tracing each line and space
of my body
cautiously                      placing
each moment into silhouettes of        p a u s e s
and shading the imagination

with tension, intervals, and length.

Be my melody,
reciting a sonnet,        haiku,          free verse
the final closure,
an exclamation to end all words
