True North

(I wrote like a fiend while I was away....)

Oh how I love your bones.
Solid skeletal
formations beneath
hard muscle,
sinew, soft mounds fleshy.
every inch
of crumbling into me.
You take root deep
where the fire burns.
but constant energy.

And, oh,
how I love that
of hair, your
shading canopy
Let me bliss your beauty.
Let me roll myself in your flesh
let me
awaken to you.

The compass points to home.

Funny, when I wrote it, I didn't think I was writing it for anyone in particular...I was walking through fest and the first line kept running through my i went to my tent and wrote it out.

Uh, Hi - What the hell took me so long to become a faithful follower? I don't know.

Windy calls me her True North.

I'm hooked.
