Let’s–You and I

Let’s light a fire

and smell the lavender burn

let the smoke dance

its way across the room

till it lays heavy

on our eyes


Let your eyelids sink


Let’s hold each other

though we’ve never been taught to hold

and clumsily find our way to happiness

let our skin be free

to speak louder

than light and sound


Let’s change the boundaries

of time and space

to suit our fickle yearning

let our dreams run wild

as morning hair


Let’s take a mental picture

every time we wake up

so we remember

perfection may not be real

but beauty is


Let’s laugh till we lose

our voices

to the Balancer of Joy

then laugh still

soundlessly, seamlessly, wonderfully


Let’s study the patterns

in each other’s eyes

and plot out the movement

of our hearts

so I may open my arms

before you fall into them


Let’s stop containing

the way we feel

so you may see how

my heart stops

hear how

my skin tingles

at first sight of you


Let’s love each other

shamelessly and wholly


Let your heart drive you

into mine

with such an explosive force

all our walls are broken down


See scarred, scared, vulnerable me

and love her


She will do the same

for you
