Mysterious Skin

Lord please forgive this mysterious skin
That I was simply born into
Supple skin of so much longing
Hungering and knowing the need
Of being touched by another
Inside of me
The hidden places call out
Wet with wanting
My lips drink the dew
Which is you
I taste drop by drop
The story of your creation
Building of nations
And how we can be made new
Once again
What is it about warm bodies
Touching skin to skin
