Through my heart – taking residence
In my joints, bones, muscles
My very sinews scream passion – living in my heart.
Yes, that muscle once quietly beat
But now proudly proclaims your name with each beat,
Whispers your name as the blood rushes through the vessels.
The cells wait to hear your name – the password – before accepting the life-giving oxygen
How could I know, that sunny fall morning,
That you would creep into me
And become as important to me
As the air that moves in and out
Over my tongue, down my throat and into the alveoli of my lungs.
You come in through my eyes…my ears…my fingers
You slide along the synapses and nerves
Until you shoot through my
Whole body leaving me gasping as if
Touched by a live wire.
You…you are in me
And I would have it
