Affected

A piano playing a sweet melody,
the keys tug at my heart.
You transform my soul.
I yearn for the beat that changed the rhythm of my heart.

My mind is clear -
the beat becomes one with me.
I allow it to take over –
Reluctantly, recklessly
take over.

Affect me. Change me.
Make my heart beat with yours.
My veins pump with your blood.
Wash over me.
Cleanse me.
Change me.

- Alicia LaJoie
