This Time I Hope



This time I hope you scent me
and pheromones invite
This time I hope you vent me to express delight

This time I hope you know me
and recognize my trace
This time I hope you show me an eternal place

This time I hope you hear me
and listen to my heart
This time I hope you clear me of a hurtful part

This time I hope you call me
and softly utter joy
This time I hope you thrall me in corporal ploy

This time I hope you see me
and focus on my plan
This time I hope you free me as an honest man

This time I hope you lure me
and bait a load of fun
This time I hope you stir me and appeal to one

This time I hope you feel me
and pet effects amiss
This time I hope you heal me with a loving kiss
