beast of enjoyment

there is a river of light
which flows
through my body
and carries me past
my paper thoughts and painted smiles.
it leads me to the darkened wall
where the silent beast of enjoyment
the beast, which desires all
and tears the painted smiles
to engage in violet heat,
is only enkindled
when your hand
and i can record my emotions
letting my river
pass through the lines.
