Protect me from myself
save me from my own vices
my own social ills that force me
to ignore and not appreciate that
which i love above all else
help me!
help me abolish self doubt and criticism
ban impatience and frustration
open me completely to love
as freely as i feel inside
allow me to embrace you as i have my own body

protect me

be my shield and i will be your sword
i am by your side
in the palm of your hand

you possess me
you inspire me
you enthrall me
you distract me

protect me
help me


i don't have to hunt for the rhyme and verse in any pen
'cause we exist in a place of
free verse
we exist on planes where our caresses become songs
where our embraces are dances
all words traded between our tongues
are sure to be transcribed
into every scholar's canon of love

you entice me
you inspire me
you irk me
you possess me
to step outside realms of comfort and places of safe choices
you push me to the outer edges of my existence
wanting to die suddenly
only to be reborn to rediscover how delicious you felt the first time
lascivious, lustful thoughts make me
want to run naked in the rain
only to stumble upon you on a sidewalk
and be subjected to your kindness
