but because we do not know

but because we do not know,
and we live in this fear
do we not engage in conflict
or try to love
my dear,
it goes like this
your hands are soft
they are quick
unflawed
and natural 
and unnerved
yet i am drawn to them
like the light
draws the moths
and i think
but because i will never
fully grasp or understand
the yearning
the hunger in my belly
the hearts burning
to conflict with you
and exchange this idea
(we will never know)
why i cannot
grasp
the form of love
i seek so desperatly
and need
without knowing
