At the very thought of you,

my entire self aches,

quivering at the touch of every emotion,

left open to feelings never before felt.

Brilliance radiates steamy desire

between this man and my womanhood.

The journey begins as we take the first step with words.

Inspiration to challenge my creativity

beyond my wildest imagination.

My everything is heightened!

I relish the thought

of being schooled in lessons mutually anticipated.

For here is the man, at my bequest,

that now holds the key to my inner sanctum,

enticing me to escape all my rules;

Throw every caution to the wind.

Let down every gate, every barrier,

and allow myself to be swept away.
