what is this relationship we have?
all i have to do is keep myself open,
and you slide yourself quietly within
you are so gentle with me;
i don’t feel your arrival until you are well within my blood;
until i am ready to receive you
then suddenly i become aware
you have come!
you are here!
if i am speaking, the words are yours
if i breathe, the rhythm is you
i become a vessel
through which you manifest
if you want to write, i hold myself out as your pen
if you want to dance, i keep myself loose to take on your shape
if you want to breathe, i rise and fall for you
let me be your hand, your face
let me be your eye, your foot
let me be an extension of you
