Conjure

oshun

Conjure

this

word

an

incantation

to bring you

now

while this

fever

burns

before

blood

cools

now

in the heat

of the

last summer

before

fall is

forever

while

i still

crave

being sectioned

like a ripe

sweet tangerine

dripping & succulent

nourishing

devout hungers

w/tantalizing

rivers of nectar

now

as the

rose

is

engulfed

in its

most

heady scent

now in the circle

of this moment

bring

fulfillment

full as

moon tide

before

the bloom fades

into gentler hues

than

the passionate purples

&

unrestrained reds

i

desire you in

come

to me

out

of dream

&

longing

filling

waiting crevices

with your essence

anticipated

almost past

appreciation

i conjure thee

by the depth of

emotion waiting to

delight

you beyond

reason

enticing you into

acts of devotion

here-to-fore written

only

in lovers legends

i conjure thee

by the breath of

my need

here

in the hour

before

twilight

at the

outskirts

of summer

i have issued

my

siren call
