Poem “To Finally Say…”

To Finally Say…

Within me shines
The transparency of
Love
The universe
Dwells in
My kiss and
I have never
Walked before with
Such intention and
Given of
My heart like
This

To open
My mouth and
Exhale in
Rhyme
Doesn’t do this
Justice
Because I
Can’t stop to
Love you more
When I
See our
Truest purpose

It is in
The darkness I
Hear your voice
It is in
Light I
See your smile
It is in
My mind I
Crave your touch
And to be with
You awhile

But night and
Day and
Day and
Night I
Want more than
This blind sight

I want you with
Me and me
With you and
Us to be
Just us
Two

Because in
This truth I
Know
Just what
You inspire
And I
Have a craving to
Take this
Love
Higher and
Higher

Into something
To be
admired and
By some
To be
desired in
This lust is
A love I do
Trust in
Giving
This love
To you

In this
Moment
Is my soul
Is my love
Is my heart
No less than
The whole
Never
Divided in
Part I
Give you
Words that
Move
Words that
Breathe
Words that
Are always
A part of
Me
A part
Not separate
From the whole
A part that I
Am aching for
You to
Know

Touch
Inside
Deep within
Feel this
Love I
Am giving

If words
Could make
Love to you
Then these are
The words
Making you
Move
Pushing and
Stirring
Deep within
Touching and
Embracing
Your inner most
Feelings

I am kissing
Beyond your
Neck and
Moving
Beyond your
Thigh
I am looking
Without vision
Just to
Catch
Your eye

I am not
Someone who
Speaks with
Words falling
From her lips
But with
The movement of
Her hips
Caught in
Dance in
The light of
This universal
Romance in
Secret
You know
More than I
Share
You know me
When I
Am almost
There
Letting go
Letting these
Words
Flow
Through
Your ear
Through
Your heart I
Know
Your deepest spot
Touched by
My hand—
Can you see it?
This is where I am

This is not
Just words I
Am given
This is
More than
Me writing
This is
Me finally
Declaring—
God Damit, I am fighting

For the silence when
We just feel
For the words we
Cannot steal
For the smiles and
All the whiles in
My mind when
I stop to
Think of
Us being in
Sync to
Love without
Fear to
Give without
A care to
Be so cliché
As to
finally say—

I want you in such a way
As to make you smile everyday

This is all I have ever
had to say.
