The Body Remembers

A soul's fingerprints
upon the body
left by hands
and eyes
and lips
and love.

It cries out
against common sense
to return to your arms,
fall into your eyes,
indulge in your kisses,
and surrender up to you.

The mind begs freedom
but the body craves bondage
to not just one soul
but also to another:
to match and complement
augment each other's existence.

How long can my body persist
to love itself in your stead
with sensations magical
and unfelt yet believed
for the body remembers
what the mind wills to forget.
