My Desires – Bruce S. Tuyishime (Alien)

Week: September 18 – 24, 2023


My desires. I want to reach your heart,
Before your pulse rocket spikes in heat.
To give you integrity, a trust so deep,
Before treating You as promises to keep.

With every word I speak, a pledge a vow,
In this dance of souls, a connection unfurled,
Two hearts entwined in a love-filled whirl.
Before I take your world, I’ll give my word.

Make love our canvas, where stories are told,
In brushstrokes, in variety of smooth and bold.
All of You cherishes your good, bad and ugly.
As we write our story, in a haven of our own.

That is why I want to reach your heart,
Before your pants fall at our eager feet.
To give you integrity, a trust so deep,
Before taking virginity, a gift to keep.
