Unbound


Hate is a cry for love, and the fear in your voice echoes for empathy in the distance.
Can’t you hear it too?

Hold on, take it in.

I wish that every kiss could undo what’s been done, leaving only a heart unbound.
Back to square one, into the world between our waiting arms.
Whatever it takes to feel pure again.

Hold on, take it in.

Beckoned


I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.

I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.

She said, “I just want to keep you, a little longer.”
She took my hand & I could not refuse her.
All I knew was that I was wanted, no needed in a new light.
With an urgency & an honesty I had never been shown before, I felt destined to stay.
Suddenly all my losses didn’t stand a chance at all.
Empathy emptied me into her until a calm had filled her soul.
Our touch could not end.

In that very moment I had become the cure & the cause for her way with words.
I knew exactly what she meant, and she knew exactly where I stood, with her by my side.
I understood my place & purpose within her stillness.
We became all that we could be, while we could be.

Grasp


I can't separate you from me.

I can’t separate you from me.

Your grasp extends beyond the way you touch me.
I feel no pressure coming from your way.
Take me without touching me.
Embracing what’s already yours like a dance we both know the moves to.
Make me feel right at home.
I hope you feel just what I mean.
Tomorrow’s never coming to take you away.

Closer than our skin knows.
So warm below the surface.
Your heat lingers like visible vapors.
Throws off my equilibrium, even though your beauty never gets in the way.
I don’t understand how you keep on finding ways to shine your light.
When words don’t come out right, your embrace sets it right.
Set free in your grasp like a compass with a clear destination.

Like raindrops falling from above, I never know where you’ll land.
But when you do, it covers me gently all the same.
You spread peace all over me.
Drenched in a warmth that can’t be calculated.
The temperature surrounding us can’t be measured by degrees.
I can’t separate you from me.
You’re still with me, even when you leave.
Your grasp extends beyond your touch.

Withdrawal


Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.

Lay your head down.
Don’t be afraid to drown in the warmth of this caress.
Retreat from your body while we lose track of time.
This is not something you think about, it’s something you simply feel.
Your touch is a good kind of high.
And every time we get low you find some way to blow my mind.
Even when you can’t take no more, you yearn for it all the same.
Constant contradiction like withdrawal from an addiction.
You want it all the time & you don’t even know why.
Take comfort in taking chances.
Find rest in light of this caress.
Don’t hurry your mind.
Don’t worry your time.

Felt


Your innerness leaked out unfiltered, raw.
We know what’s meant by it.
What little you’ve said elaborated enough.
You were taken in, captured by the moment.
Couldn’t let go, until your temporary obsession was simply felt.
In that moment nothing was deeper; you reached down past the bottom; subterranean.

Nothing was lost in translation, what happened to you happened to another.
It wasn’t an epiphany, it was ‘phantom transference’, another unexpected connection reflected through our eyes.
Like ripples still being felt, we’ve only begun to make our presence known.
Without even knowing it, you came to realize the language of my humanity.

Collected through glances & silences where touches & words no longer dared to cross, we had an exchange.
You saw through the tact that kept me so composed.
Destiny hides in the trivial; gestures paint pictures, while energy sweats spirit profusely.
And experience is its own medium.
We make memories & we take from them what we will.
We’re not strangers anymore, you got me in the blink of an eye, without question.
You completed me, I let you.
Of you & I, there is no further separation.
