I wanted to experience you
not just live vicariously in verbalities, words or stories
not just know your favorite song
but dance with you to it while it plays faintly in the background
remixed with our heavy breathing
and childlike laughter
I want to taste the food that sets fire to your tongue
and walk with you past the house you grew up in
I want to smell your energy and hear the drumming of your vibration meeting mines.
I sense the elevation, the highness that is you.
You are not to be known
You are to be felt
I try to keep my eye closed as much as possible when I am with you
That way your aura is palpable and holding you is colorful, like touching a rainbow.
