Exchange

I give you
My heart
And you give
Me yours,
We eat
In the heat;
Love feeds
The need.

I give you
My body
And you give
Me yours,
We feast
Like beasts;
Love spins
The skin.

    It almost sounds like two spiders mating, especially when you think that the male becomes lunch afterwards if he’s not quick enough to escape.

    Ingenious. I hadn’t thought about this before. Thank you for your lucid thoughts. And, of course, your appreciation.
