If you were to touch me now you might electrocute the both of us.

I a’m highly charged and you're gifted with a devouring receptivity.

The hair along the arc of my forearms stand like devoted warriors.

Goosebumps from solar flares tinge the organ covering my being.

I feel chill although it’ is one hundred and ten in the shade.

My body takes a high dive right into the center of your heavenly eyes.

I ascend, and then glide into the nexus of a perfect tear; an opaque pearl

Choosing it's own path under the emerald eyes of an enchantress.

Naked and empty handed, I land heart-first onto your wonder-world.

The truth of your love amazes me.

I am speechless.

I am stunned.
