this is the gospel of you:

i lay there,
naked and mortal and
starry-eyed,

and you,
crouched with large dark pupils,

you,
a nymph and a priestess and a vision,

you,
my muse who breathed soft wonderings,

baptized me
on a bath mat
with a plastic yellow bucket.

you poured the water over my breasts and collar bone
and it was holy, holy, holy.

The whole metaphor comparing sex to Christianity seems contradictory, but you've really pulled it off here into somethign ingeious :3

I agree with toxic-nebulae above, though. "starry-eyed" is cliche, and is weak compared to the rest of the beautiful poetry. 
Maybe try and fit in the Christianity-metaphor into that line, perhaps? ("revelations in eyes" or "God in my eyes" or something.)

"starry-eyed" strikes me as a bit of a cliche
but I really love the rest of this

Checking back in. I see nobody has commented on this. Boo. That is a shame.

The last two stanzas alone are worth comment. I love the way this ends. :heart:
