A poem by Sheena Baharudin. 

 

Your shoes will be the first to go.

Then your earrings, will be remov[enter]
your necklace, unclasped

and your lingerie, dropped
followed by your dre[enter].

Though we both know
this thirst will remain unquenc[enter]

My eyes will still dri[enter] you
by the mouthful.

So crushed mout[enter]
and stifled gas[enter].

My tongue will li[enter] the light off
the arch of your ba[enter], the curves of your feet.

So quickened heartbe[enter]
curled toes on wrink[enter] sheets.

Let me meand[enter] over the vastness
of skin left undev[enter] still.

I will show you how wetn[enter]
and warmth are only synonyms

We will do what we have to do
not to wake the neighb[enter]

I will do what I have to do
not to stop until you beg me to
