This is the secret of my body
by Eric Angus
Age Group: Adult
This is the secret of my body:
Like some swift growing rose
Fed by your radiant form,
It shreds my heart with thorny passage,
Yearning to burst, red and ferocious,
From my quaking lips:
My lips that tremble
To whimper your name
As though a prayer to the winds.
On the winds in which your named is sighed,
I catch your scent.
Your scent! ah!
All the oils, perfumes, and incensum
Can not, with all their fragrance,
Equal the inebriation
Into which I am flung
At your approach.
I dread your presence.
I hate you, fear you, and love you utterly.
I cry, I tear, I froth
As the intensity of your gaze
Freezes my hot blood,
Burns my marrow with lightning,
Sets my smooth skin all to stone.
Behold! Like Holy Mary
My statue weeps before you.
Your lips (those forbidden blossoms
Within a sacred garden)
Are the keys to my release.
Kiss me, O Fiery God!
Kiss me; Kiss me. Kiss me!
With your sun-drenched mouth
As light on the leaves
That my shivering limbs may cease
And my heart become still.
