You cause every murmur
that incites my heart
like a spiritual reaching
to grasp the breath that leaves me
each time you pass by
When your body is beside me
your exuberance
penetrates my shield
and I am left vacant
You cause my vanquished thought
sacrificed to the impulse of my body
and you move me
You are the source
of my every sigh
You cause me to breathe
You cause me to gasp
You cause me to want more
You make me
