"bird of my longing"

fly bold
across the cities and countrysides
oh beautiful bird of my longing
fill my ears with your song
and the whispers of a desirous lover
who knows how to flirt with me
not her or him or two or three
I want that lover to engage me
and yearn for the music
that my body belts out
when I am loved intensily and being made love to, deeply
the sound my body belts out
when I am loving intensily and making love, deeply
solely
focused
usually I am not that selfish
but when I fall and I do fall hard
I want to land freely in my lover's arms
not worrying about heavy baggage that my lover carries
from another's dead weight
oh beautiful bird of my longing
make your way to window sills
and rooftops, trees and flower shops
drive fast cars in slow lanes
sit next to my lover on the nearest park bench
do what you have to do
to get my lover to me,
find my soulmate
oh beautiful bird of my longing
and bring to me
the gift of a lasting tune
like you,
I want to sing
