I only want you if I can make love with your mind;
I want the sweet liquid that’s born between your eyes.
Wreathed in gorgeous hair, with a delicate, sloping nose,
And perfect lips that reveal petals of tender pathos,
I want to sip your soft persuasion
And hear you vociferate felicity.
I only want you if I can kiss your soul and feel the Goddess hold me close;
I want you to invite me into the sanctum of your heart.
Concentric circles, and mountains, and valleys
Dip to the hot, red core that lies within.
I want to hold our dales together,
And create a paradise for two lovers.
I only want you if you can face your fears;
I want to kiss your hand and shed a tear together.
Though the world may shake,
And the earth may crumble beneath us,
I want you to hold my gaze,
As we boldly speak our truth.
I only want you because we’re equals;
I want to cross our sabers and salute one another with pride.
Sharp, flexible, and shining,
The blade is swift because a swift hand wields it.
I want to feel your steel upon my skin,
As unwavering and gentle a calligrapher’s brush.
I want you to know the ocean within me;
I want your moon to overflow my shores.
Spires, cliffs, and jagged boulders,
Salty spray above heaping kelp;
I want you to burst my levees
And surround my lonely island.
I want you because I love you;
Because your eyes are deep, like galaxies.
I want you because I sense you;
I feel like I’ve met you, before.
I want you because you push me;
I flex in your mirror image.
But I only want you if you want me;
Because freedom is the most beautiful thing of all.
