    Damiana: ( to the (G)o(o)Dess in me

    Shaped Bottle like a goddess
    Pre-packaged ideas of sultry
    Sensation
    Dripped down the inside leg off
    **** me harder daddy

    Harder
    (Getting weak with each breathe)
    Harder
    (Weak from the inside of your hand print)
    Harder
    (Weak from the lines of longevity on your inner palm)

    One shot glasses filled with
    Small drops of love make it to your
    Waiting lip
    ….love the drugs spell
    They never told me about in class
    Love the only thing I can’t kill because it lives in me
    Do you know what it feels like to have your hand stamped by
    Indecisions? Uncontrollable urges to get away to love?

    Second shot filled with deceit
    Lies not real answer just lies about how you are
    And how we are
    Lies filled with secrets only God knows
    (You whispered to me on your third shot)
    Of lies, shaped like the belly of forgiveness
    Un-conditional, forgiving and willing
    Love, a place where the sun no longer glances
    In my direction

    Third shot filled with creative ways to say you
    LOVE because you forgot you already have

    (Pause)

    Said those same words
    Over and over again
    (Heavy breathe)
    Can you get up from the table to wipe your face of the rejection?
    Smells of others lay deep on your freshly showered
    Righteous intentions
    Lip service falls on Deaf ears
    Waved hands of
    W I L L Y O U F O R G I V E M E
    Love

    Fourth shot: I only feel loved when you caress the back of my inner thought
    With your palm print
    Seeing you is like looking at the opening of heavens gate
    And they will have palm braches in there hands
    Moving from side to side, with a rhythm only you know you have with my love
    Blinks of your eyes bring me back to the beginning
    How we started how you made me
    How we glanced in a single direction
    I feel loved when you pamper my emotions
    Touch my tears
    I feel loved when
    I can feel God inside your kiss

    Fifth shot: the last act in our play
    Harder daddy I scream
    Words spoken with out sounds
    Love you placed yourself at my doorstep are you ready to come in
    Love
    Shaped like the queen of the sea
    On a mission to capture my heart in closed caption
    I feel loved when you let me cry on your shoulder

    Sixth shot my turn to feel loves intentions
    To get weak in the palm of your hand
    To have a palm branch in mine
    To make the lies stop
    And heart beats to slow down
    It my turn to create love in my sacred women’s place

    Seventh shot: for the ancestors
    Chile she done learned the way
    Sassafras in her hip and chicory in her walk
    I think she got it
    Love
    Then the bottle is closed and place in the cabinet
    Marked:
    For love only

    I particularly liked these lines:
    I feel loved when
    I can feel God inside you kiss
    But this was filled with deep phrases throughout. Liked the flow.
