An Ode to What Never Ceases

I need you
As the painter
Needs the brush
As the night
Needs the moon
I need you
As the poet
Needs the pen
As the spring
Needs the bloom

I want you
As the page
Wants the ink
As the tongue
Wants the taste
I want you
As the lips
Want the kiss
As the orchard
Wants the rain

I love you
As the flesh
Loves the touch
As the artist
Loves the muse
I love you
As the neck
Loves the teeth
As you love me
I love you
