Lyric: I long to touch her body... (2001)

I long to touch her body,
   to nestle, hard and full,
inside her pliant belly,
    its curving lunar pull.

I long to touch her body,
    so close to swallow whole
the safety of her loving,
     the goldness of her soul.

I long to touch her body,
    for touching is the truth,
beyond the conscience guessing,
     beyond the pedant’s proof.
