After Eden

| | Comments (0)
If only I could return,

to feel your hands
            calm and serene
            fashioning me in your image,

to hear your voice
            tranquil and easy
            breathing over me,

to see your eyes
            fervent and beautiful
            revealing yourself to me.

I promise:
            this time,
            I will not be afraid.
