[POETRY] Alive

Updated: Sep 30, 2023

by Tiff Joy

I want to inhale your words and exhale orgasms, Caress your emotions and stroke your ego. Taste the flavor of your culture And drink from the fountain of your wisdom. You make me feel alive I want to watch you as you undress from the robes of ignorance And bathe in resilience Dry you off with intellect and moisturize with empowerment. I want to perfume your body with struggle, until you wreak of perseverance

You make me feel alive


I want to lay your naked body down on a table of ambition,


And massage diversity into you, release the tension of discrimination.


You make me feel alive.


I want to dance with you as we create the movement of social change,


Listen to the beat of inner city streets.


And press my lips against your honesty.


You make me feel alive.


I want to cuddle by the flame of desire for a different world, a cleaner place;


Filled with brown skin and bright smiles.


I want to lick your neck and tickle you with dreams of solidarity.


You make me feel alive.


I want to sleep with you on a bed of unity


And wrap my arms around your curves of intuition.


I want to walk with you in a garden of independence


And hold your hand throughout the fight for equality.


You make me feel alive.


I want to play with you in a hydrant of growth in a hot summer of poverty,


While guiding you toward a path of understanding.


I want to read you stories of experience under a tree of knowledge.


You make me feel alive.


I want to inhale you words and exhale orgasms.


Damn, I feel alive.
