It’s not enough to hold you
You must desire to be held too.
It’s not enough to sigh into a caress
You must embrace the need to give.
It’s not enough to kiss your lips
Your lips must melt with love’s surrender.
It’s not enough to want that kiss,
You must relinquish yourself to intention.
It’s not enough to reciprocate the words,
“I love yous” get lost in life’s wind.
It’s not enough to speak them back
You must find them deep within.
It’s not enough to patrol love’s street,
You must know your heart’s dimensions
So when you sail through what stood as boundary,
You soar into planes unknown.
It’s not enough to “live” this life
Automaton slave to an external world
You must explore your undiscovered universe within
If you desire to walk with me…
