        what answers do you need to calm your curiosity 
	do you so doubt the truth of our first kiss
	have you watched so long that you no longer see me
	what secrets did you think i could hide  
 	you alone have undressed me to bare flesh

	is it my collection of unpolished shoes
	memories of footsteps taken to life’s doorways 
	do you think i will not stand by you forever
	when every  second of my being
	has brought me to your side

	what puzzles to life’s mysteries
	will be answered on  hangers and  photograph albums
	costumes of life…trinkets and tuxedos
	images created in a world needing its own reflection
	mirror snapshots of strangers smiling for strangers

	is it my hat boxes with no names 
	holding testimonials of who I was to be
	that you desperately need to renounce out loud
	i recall moments when your soft breathing inside of me 
	was the only sound needed to tell the world we were one

	were you looking for a suitcase packed with excuses
	fearing sunrise without our gentleness to explore
	we have crossed the world’s longitudes and latitudes
	Rio to Monterrey…Brisbane to Berlin…passion dusk to dawn
	all of my dreams shared in your arms

	we have always quenched each other’s unquenchable thirst  
	passion flows through us like a river of raindrops
	i love you with all that I am…all that I ever wanted to be
	i have sought nothing more than your trust in me
	we are…one within each other’s hourglass…come to me
	please don’t open my closet door
