Ambrosia

Only at this time in life
do I find that my
education fails me
and my grasp of the language
becomes weak
When someone asks me
How you make me feel.
I become overwhelmed
at the thought of
what your glance of
satisfaction can stir
inside of me
Waves of sensation
sweep through my being
a sweet aching in my
soul from your
absence
The absence of the
summer in your eyes
that the memory of
sun-filled childhood
joy
cannot begin to imitate;
of the sanctuary of your
embrace
That could not be
penetrated by
a thousand possessed souls;
the absence of
the soft midnight
whispers
shivering through my soul.
I can only imagine
the peace and purity
of love
Spoken of promise lands
of milk and honey
possess one fourth of the
sensation
you make me feel
