Closer Than Your Skin

Professor, therapist, author and poet.






My heart pulsates with you. I'm closer than your skin.
My love locates with you.
That's where I've always been.

My mind collates with you. I'm closer than your word.
My wit creates with you.
That's what I've always heard.

My soul equates with you. I'm closer than your sun.
My core comates with you.
That's what I've always done.

My flesh gyrates with you. I'm closer than your glide.
My dance relates with you.
That's what I've always tried.

My joy awaits with you. I'm closer than your fun.
My bliss elates with you.
That's how I've always won.
