"my letter to you"

by C. Ikpoh

My Love,


I cannot stop thinking about you. Throughout my moments alone, I wonder where you are and what you are doing. I wonder if you are thinking about me, if you obsess over what I am as I do over what you are. Your skin teases my tongue with a remembrance of the sweetest taste. Your mystical eyes leave me begging to see the world through them. Your soft hair flows like a crown only befitting the grandest of queens. Your supple lips tempt me to massage them with my own; I am cursed to uncontrollable desires when your tongue protrudes from behind them. Your physical frame is a castle around my heart, housing every ounce of manhood I possess. What I wouldn't give to press my shell against yours, to join them as one, sharing a moment to forever be cherished. I would travel the black seas of space and the sands of time for just one moment where we could love each other freely. I love you so much, which is why I yearn to have you more than anything else I can imagine. You are my greatest wish, the one thing I want. God would be cruel to keep you from me any longer. I pray one day soon He will place our futures together, side-by-side, on a singular path towards immeasurable happiness and never-ending passion, fulfilled by lusts that can only be quenched through each other. Until then, though, I will keep thinking about you, about what you are. Until then...


Forever Yours,
