List of You (Homage to Elizabeth Barrett Browning)

How do I adore thee? Let me list the ways

Your delicious eyes

Your tender lips

The way your clothes hang from your hips

Your height and breadth and depth, divine

Oh how I wish that you were mine

Your crooked smile

Your warm embrace

The perfect stubble on your face

How you’re so sure of everything

You leave my hungry heart thumping

Your kisses and your touch

So sweet!

All else becomes but obsolete

Your perfect arch above each eye

I feel I am blissfully high

On lust and love and adoration

But it’s to my own damnation

To you – my muse, fascination

I offer you my subjugation

But this will not bring affirmation

As you do not adore me
