New Love

swirling red heart

New love is like fireworks in a summer sky
I am a child again
virgin again
each sensation new
untasted untried
to be rediscovered in new arms
electric entanglement
fermented fever
denial as sweet sharp as fulfillment
nothing hurts as good
as wanting before you get
nothing as sweet as
the first bite of mango
ripe and wet fragrant
lush emotional high
best dope ever
my nose is open
lets dance.
