I Love You

The issue is that I love you 
I get this shaking feeling in my head 
Like the ground is no longer secure 
I cannot trust myself to speak 
In case I say something telling. 
But I really want to tell you 
Your smile lights up my day 
Whether is serious of unabashed 
Teasing or sardonic 
I simply melt. 
You eyes they fix on me 
And I would not have it another way 
There's something in there hurting 
But there's something in me too 
And somehow when you hug me 
It fits me back from two 
To one 
A whole heart and voice. 
My dear I wanted to tell you 
That without a thought 
Or a preconceived idea of self 
I would follow you to the edge of the earth and back 
Just to stop your tears from falling. 
The touch of your hand on my skin burns, 
It burns but it does not consume 
It brands me as yours
In the very depths of my heart 
It lit a flame on the alter I built 
To you my love. 
The first. 
The last. 
My everything.
