The lines I drew were never quite clear,
I always attempted to trace,
It wasn’t until I gave up hope
That I arrived in the right place.
See, I had tried so hard to replicate
All I had seen before
Unaware of how that idea shrunk me
And kept me from opening the right doors.
I stand before this corridor of passageways
Still unsure which one to choose,
However, I know not to follow another
For I have nothing to lose.
If we sit side by side,
At the edge of the brook,
Will you trace circles on my knee
Whilst I steal an admirable look?
If we share a meal,
In an intimate setting,
Will you stay right there with me
All the while forgetting?
Should we falter,
Or wane in our Lust,
Will you reveal yourself
As someone I can Trust?
No matter where you are,
You are at home,
For you are in your own skin.
The keeper of your light.
And Marvel at your home.
It is, after all, yours for life.
My hands are never empty,
they are laced with power.
If ever you feel weak, powerless, or lost,
look down at your hands.
Remember all that is,
and all that is yet to be discovered.
I hear you murmuring
at the most unexpected of times
riddling my mind with humor
and assuring me that it’s fine.
I don’t get caught up anymore
I’m not lost on my own
I am learning day by day
through what I have been shown.
Thank you for your counsel
For the lessons and strain
I trust in this process
And won’t use what I’ve learned
I have accepted this apparition
That seems to have made a home in and around me.
It was once more of a poltergeist,
Quick, clumsy, rude, and powerful
No longer terrified, I look to it
As more of a friend, a confidant.
I share my secrets,
I welcome it in,
I stare it in the eyes,
well-knowing it will not win.
Undress me in one breath,
Surround me in You,
We’ll both Unfold,
And forever take in the view.
Whispers between us
Out of this realm we step,
Engulfed in amorous connection,
A feeling we won’t soon forget.
If you want to go,
Now is the time.
If you want to stay,
It will guide you the right way.
If you want to make it,
If you want to forget,
There is a reason it’s there.
Give it your all,
Fight til the death,
It’s all just a test.
You’re more prepared than you believe,
Go out and attend,
Your heart will thank you
For the time that you spend.
Let your touch inspire every tremble,
Glide across my skin,
Softly kiss every inch of me,
Different from where we’ve been.
Lay next to me with sleepy eyes
And drift off for a while,
Pretend all else melts away,
And when you awake, i’ll smile.
