i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) I fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

sensuality does not wear a watch but she always gets to the essential places on time. she is adventurous and not particularly quiet. she was reprimanded in grade school because she couldn’t sit still all day long. she needs to move. she thinks with her body. even when she goes to the library to read emily dickinson or emily brontë, she starts reading out loud and swaying with the words, and before she can figure out what is happening, she is asked to leave. as you might expect, she is a disaster at office jobs.

sensuality likes to make love at the border where time and space change places. when she is considering a potential lover, she takes him to the ocean and watches. does he dance with the waves? does he tell her about the time he slept on the beach when he was seventeen and woke up in the middle of the night to look at the moon? does he laugh and cry and notice how big the sky is?
it is spring now, and sensuality is very much in love these days. her new friend is very sweet. climbing into bed the first time, he confessed he was a little intimidated about making love with her. sensuality just laughed and said, “but we’ve been making love for days.”
