I have read them again and again
hearing more and more deeply
as it strives to convey impressions
stretching across untold eternities
in mere seconds.
They pulse within me, throbbing
through my veins,
tensing beneath my eager hands
with each recitation,
grasping the hardening certainty
of my desire,
my most persistent adoration of,
my love, you.
