A lover’s chorus

Favor Hordah is a passionate poet and has written poems about religion, sex, human emotions, gender issues, racial issues and government.

Her chorus

Your hands send a shiver beneath my skin.

Your lips are the key to the chorus of my ecstatic cries.

Your tongue has a life of its own, parting my past from present.

As I rise in your arms following the sweet rhythm of your staff,

it commands that I give up my will.

and then what?

Empty sheets?

Or a lifetime in your arms?

How many hills do I have to climb to guarantee a lifetime?

How many waves have to wash over to bring me sweet peace?
