activate me (a prayer for pleasure)

today I make a declaration
the ultimate invitation
for pleasure to invade my life
like a unstoppable force of nature
fixed on claiming me as her slave

a prisoner I shall be no more
to distraction, numbness
and shadows
instead I walk the plank
and plunge into the depths of

open to unknown bliss
rejecting joy no more

activate me
rewire me for good
lure me into the light
blister the putrid
in spirit, mind, and body

break me out of this funk
kiss me sugar sweet
carmel brittle soul

tease me
back into generous heart
giving to give
give to feel giving
pure love

love me hard
love me soft
don't quit loving me

eyes open wide
wide as they go

show me the way
let me feel it please
good, real good
