Around
You
All of me
comes alive, the flame of my desires fanned beyond description
My mind
embracing the recognition of a long lost silent prayer for you.
Alas here
you are, standing with outstretched arms
And I
bewildered and shock ridden to my sit.
Many times
my sense fail me on how to be around you.
I must
confess it’s exciting and adventurous and sad and teary and hearty.
So I tell myself
I’m in this with you with all that I’ve got.
