A Place Of Knowing

Something about you
compels me.
I want to share
my secrets with you.

I want to strip off my clothes
in bright unforgiving light,
exposing scars
and my flaws
so you can intimately
and easily know.

I want to fully spread myself open
in nearly every way
so you can see
what I have to offer
and shine light on the darkness
you’ll need to weed through.

I want to open wide
my heart
my mouth
my mind
and guide your walk through them,
let you experience them,
feel what I feel,
see through my eyes
know what I want
from your love
in my life.

I want to do this
because when you gently whisper
I Love You
into my neck
in my ear
your words landing softly
in my heart
I want to believe you because
you’ll be doing it from
a place of knowing.
