Beyond the Cuddling

November 24, 2020 - Heart matters, In Love
Beyond the Cuddling

That gravitational magnetic pull does work on us
It makes our delicate hearts come together
Because as clear as the spring waters, we are attracted to each other
We look at each other with hungry eyes
Because our stomach have never eaten such delicacies

But beyond the cuddling, there lies some rationality
We see one another with the lens of right standing
There’s always a measure of right in sitting side by side
We are hungry for the fruits of our love
But we want them after washing out hands

We were taught well in our childhood
To eat with a clean hands and to pray for the meal
To have a napkin on our breast
So that we may not get chocked
So that we may not get kwashiokor stomachs

The footing of our ginger is mutual respect
We see each other as individuals in their fullness
Persons created for more than this
Gloriously shining in their space in the universe
Beyond the physical and what we can touch with our eyes

Far beyond the cuddling, I want someone to excite my mind
Someone to tickle the imagination of a white beard and yellow brows
What I need is someone to watch the future with
Someone to breed the sight of an intense colourful imagery
One that we can build together, each with their own handwriting
