There are many, many ways in which I love you,
As many ways as there are me's and you's:
Some pure, some not so pure, some hard above you,
Some soft and sweet below, some--well, you choose!
We're animal and human and divine
All wrapped in one confused and messed-up ball.
I think sometimes with me it would be fine
If God would just decide to chuck it all.
But see the varied avenues of pleasure
Our multi-layered beings can enjoy!
Your flesh and heart equally I treasure
With all the pent-up anguish of a boy.
I long for both your body and your face;
I need both warmth and heat in your embrace.
