402 Pieces of You [05 April 2001]

in the depths of my heart
do I see you there ~
unexpectedly I find myself
full of what I know of you
but a fullness that is never satisfied
always ready for more
hungering for bits and pieces
of what made you who you are ~
I crave your words like forbidden fruit,
though they are allowed freely ~
I need to hear your voice
like a strain of music
that knocks me off my feet ~
I want to see your face
thousands of times a day,
so I may never forget it ~
I don’t know how I got here
but I feel like I should fight it
fight this total immersal in your waters
for fear of being lost ~
yet I desire you still more
yearning to see into your eyes
to touch your skin ~
deeper into my soul
do I feel you there
I dig deeper and deeper
into what I feel for you
scared of suffocation
yet excited for the possibilities
there are some days that
I reach out for the feeling
letting it loose to thrive in my heart
other days I try to lock it up
to keep it from taking me over
yet not wanting to deny it
access to every part of me ~
everything makes me think of you
from the color of the sky
to the design of a car
I fear this
with every part of me
for it is something
I’ve only dreamed of
this love that blooms
and grows moment to moment
within me the desire cultivates itself
and powerless am I
to fight its welcome onslaught
on my heart and soul
