Falling Into You

by Soyini Denise Liburd

I have this weakness:
I have not learned how to hide
The depths of who I am...
I tell all
Show my all
Love with all...
So that pain, when it comes,
Strikes deep
Wounds me beyond the reach
of any comfort I can give myself.
What would you do if you knew
this weakness?
Why do I trust you like I do?
Instinctively drawn to you...

My want is
Lingering at the edges of orgasm
I want so much... yet so afraid... to let go
Let myself fall into you.
...and lose myself in the ecstasy
That your eyes promise me

I am afraid to dream,
terrified that to slumber
means one day I must wake up
To find me broken and empty.
My mind knows my innocence,
and tries to protect me
But my heart takes no warning
As it races
into you.
What should I do?
Should I follow my heart?
... or my mind?

Your voice soothes me, relaxes me, leaves me
falling into you.
Thoughts of you make me tremble
with emotions of every kind
Interlaced, overlapping in my mind.
A man that desires to love me inside...
Could it be that I have found such a man
in you?

In you,
a man
so much man
With a gentleness and sweetness
That pulls at my heart
Drawing it closer into you.
My panicked mind struggles to keep its hold
On emotions that tempt me to release control
and simply let myself fall
into you

There you are,
Patient with my shyness
And forever virginal ways.
Drawing my heart,
but giving yours in return.
Your soul runs deep
As does mine.
Your soul... so familiar
I feel I've known you forever...
...but was somehow lost from you.
And now; finally reunited...

Now you want to be a friend
have a friend
... in me
And for all my fears
... all my desires
I cannot deny our friendship.
I cannot do that to you
... or to me
Inside I know,
how cruel that would be.

Lingering at the edges of unkown pleasures
Silken in the pools of your voice
I hesitate to join our hearts
though already they embrace.
Your heart opens up to me
Lets me see
who you are
and takes my doubt from me

I taste, I touch
at your promise to be true
My fear slips from my body
As I fall into you.
