Day 21: Love me

Do you remember the time when our lovelust

was so strong we lost

sleep and sense

to be together as god and goddess?

When I was the most

Erudite

Beautful

Sensual 

goddess that you had ever known?



I was that-

The goddess was roaring in my bones and my skin

Shimmering 

Golden and gorgeous

I was

You were 

something 

Other

Now, 

the grey hair on us both

glistens in the Spring sun

and the lines

and softness

speak of years of care:

children

pain

money

miles

The lost sleep 

is because the child wants cuddles

or the middlest 

needs reassurances that no

goddess or Mother 

can think a way through

Now

We are covered with sawdust and grass blades

and we smell of

springtime bloom,

not sex and joyous love

but jam sandwiches and

uneaten dinners

Love me

And I love you

We are still here

The goddess has not let me go

She roars in my bones and shimmers on my skin

Look into my eyes and see

Her

I see him in You
