I want to love and be love without
You and I holding back
Without you thinking I am impossible,
Not worth fighting for.
I want to love without you feeling
I am not as beautiful as the many
You see, dream of.
I want to love without you feeling love
Does not exist.
I want to Love without you fantasizing
Love is only for soap opera dreamers–Stars
I want to love you like there is no one in
The room but you and I.
I want, I wish, to love where love
Does not feel dirty, tainted, unclean,
Wrong—of no meaning, importance.
I want to love and you appreciate, respect,
Every part of me and love me like everyday
Was the first time we set eyes on each other.
I want to love and you love me tenderly—with strength
As our soul dance, heart beats, with rhythm as one,
Until our last breath.
I want to love and you love me with courage
I want to love, be love that the Supreme One
Would be proud of you and I.
Empress M. (Journee)
