A Poem by Coyote Poetry


You are my joy. You are everything and everything is you.




You undressed with the lights on.
I watched you slowly take away LAYERS of clothing.
I can feel your smiling face and  you know you have took my breath away
with your beauty and your kindness.

You stand and you are facing the mirror.
Standing nude erasing the make-up from your face and you asked me.
Am I still beautiful? Do I make your sedate life become alive in the night?

I  went to you and  and I embrace you tightly and I whispered.

You are my everything. My first thought in the morning and last thought in the night.
You know I want to caress your sun-kissed skin and perfect body now.
I will wait. I know when you are fasting in the want and need. The need expands.

She turned and her eyes filled with wisps and notions.
She asked me. Am I a wicked woman? I want us to be wild
and free like children. I want you and I to yearn for the long nights and embrace.
Do I want too much?

I told her the gods are kind to us. They allowed you to come into my life.
You give me  hope and reason to be alive.

She came to me. Fell to her knees and embraced my waist.
She looked up.

I told her. You take my breathe away and you are so beautiful.
