Love Me

by Soyini Denise Liburd

My Love is mine.
Constant, true ... bestowed.
Your love is ... desired
Beguiling, unknown

My Love is my life companion
It is ... easy. Actions, feelings, hope only.
With a gulf for disappointment and a thimble for trust.
Illusions of selflessness with self protected.
My Love is ... stunted and incomplete
and in need of You.

Your Love is ... the tremor in my heart, the yearning on my lips.
It is my fear and hope and desire.
Your Love is an absence of certainty with a promise of life
- of living and experience, and my own growth

They say Love is an expression of need - a desire for completion.
Come then, let me Love you (love me)
With all my heart
Let me Love you (love me).
