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
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.
