The extremities of this body
To marvel at and comfort
Perhaps to secretly desire
When time stands still

The sore limbs to regenerate
With soft kisses and the gentle touch
Of warm hands that linger
On the perfect skin
Translucent with a beauty so rare

The flesh suppressed by reason
Is no more
Replaced by drops of fire
And jasmine-scented ribbons
On healing fingertips
