in a single heartbeat
with your gentle smile 
you crossed my void
smashing down
any thought of retreat

opening my heart
to your effortless intrusion
trusting you past all reason
wanting you holding you  
beyond all survival

suddenly needing
this moment  
with only you 
unchallenged  daring
and forever true
