Whisper-
What did you say?
love?
touch
the gentle words
I waited for,
the gentle touch
a wetness I’m longing for
lips to lips-

yes, I said it
I take the risk!
I desire it now,
long many days
I’ve waited,
let that whisper mean
a wait is over
long dry days expire
into a sudden passion night-

and yes,
let it mean full passion
and sounds be damned!
quietness be damned!
let it explode into noise
that fills the house,

I don’t care
who hears
the noise

but for now
I’m waiting
for
a
whisper.
