You fill me.
Excitement overwhelming my body with every synchronized breath.
You hold me.
I am bound captive to your rhythmic overflow as I escape within you.
You overwhelm me.
With every turn, I gasp in awe of your unique willingness to avoid conformity.
You feel me.
Accepting all that I am. Giving me the space to be free and without bounds.
You penetrate me.
Drawing me in and out of song in overwhelming beautiful succession.
You release me.
Carrying my heart; drifting away from reality, escaping into climatic dreams.
