Swept Away

I wonder how it feels to be loved by you Even though I’ve felt your embrace and tasted your lips I wonder how it feels to consume your heart Your thoughts, your day, your mind Will I ever be allowed so close? I don’t want to give up yet, I’m just not ready But love chooses for its own reasons I hold these never ending desires, yearnings even to be held as your jewel Come now, before I walk away to find a truth Don’t let me be used, save me from these horrid thoughts Reassure me of your intentions, hold me tight Tight enough so that all my fears are squeezed far away Touch me softly so that my breath fades away Sweep me up to a place I’ve never explored Love me tenderly Let me know you’ve accepted this ever-present longing
