perpetual

she sets my mind racing
like a perpetual motion engine
ordering chaos
lining up thoughts
like errant sparks
in a warehouse
filled with gunpowder
setting off
a series of explosions
that rattle me
to my very core
all while whispering
gentle words of concern
at every new
ear splitting chorus
of need and desire
i cannot quite
recall
the before
just the majestic disaster
of shockwaves
that race down
my spine
when she says my name
in feverish tones
directly against
the ossicles
suspended
in bated breath
