    elusive woman,
    help me.
    help me find the words to create you
    i am not God-like
    but i want to pull you from my rib cage
    breathe life into your nostrils
    and say, “be.”
    as in, be wrapped around my finger in eternal bliss
    kiss my soul from above
    This
    is not any bathwater-drinking
    toe-sucking love
    it's the kind to have me searching for you in heaven
    praying at the top of my lungs
    that He'd make you mine
    the kind that defies God for you
    pluck the forbidden fruit for you
    gladly tip-toe the line between sin
    and everlasting life with you
    but like water you slip through these strong hands
    disappear in a whisp of steam
    always seen but cannot be held
    except in the clutches of unworthy men
    whose histories poison your past
    littering your life with time wasted and lingering pain
    disguised in caution—
    my mind silently weaves in a passing thought:
    what
    about
    me?

    let me dip my tongue into your essence
    speak your desires into actions
    and be what you wish for in the tumultuous darkness of night
    elusive lady
    mount your pedestal
    and prostrate me
    open your world
    and duplicate me
    guard my safety like the secrets we've shared—
    the forbidden desire i've denied
    but can no longer hide;
    evade me no more.

    let me leave you quenched
    soothe your overworked heart
    lay back and listen to the latent lapping
    of gentle waves
    slapping the wooden flanks of our new vessel
    we will sail across a sea of unfamiliarity
    navigating to the unknown vast
    of new lives living in peace
    resist the urge to remain
    elusive
    moan me your existence
    scream our fate into an obscure whisper
    like silent loudness articulating meaning

    elusive woman
    grant me reprieve and the chance to rejoice
    come to me,
    lend me
    and my pen
    your voice....
