A Passionate Lover To Her Beloved

Note: I wrote this poem while seeing someone (a classmate in a graduate course in  English Literature class) who later on became a priest. It was a brief encounter but I can still remember his clean scent and his passionate kisses.

A Passionate Lover to Her Beloved
By: Amy Morales Labitad
(Published at XU Crusader, Oct. 1975)

kiss me
with eager lips
but don't consume me
else nothing would remain of me.

touch me
with such delicious warmth
Oh, tenderly!
but don't cling too lightly
else it would become a necessity.

passion is a crazy, tricky feeling

kiss me....
    touch me....
        leave me half-awakened....
            but forever wanting!
