I reverence that mellifluous melody
Of my name flowing from your tongue
Completely captivated I cherish
the opulent ripple of sound produced by your voice.
Please pronounce once more
that which I am known by.
Kindly say it as a whisper
that slices through this passion filled air between you and I.
My heart is begging for it,
like an addict,
it cries for it, suffers for it and bleeds for
this sweetest utterance.
My breath comes in gasps
as yours rushes out with parts of me on your syllables
and I find myself breathless
when that liquid eloquence reaches my thirsty pleas.
Hold me as your cup of coffee and feel
my warmth between your hands as I
unfurl my soul in your embrace and let me know
who it is that I am before you consume my essence.
I implore, let my name drop like rich abundant honey
from your ever dulcet lips unto my love-deprived heart
to soothe it like a replenishing calming balm,
curing with it all of past’s scars; revitalizing my soul.
