Status: Finished  |  Genre: Poetry  |  House: Booksie Classic

I always write my thoughts out privately. This is the first time I decided to share a poem with anyone in its raw state. It is very fresh; right out of my head and into the Booksie community. Sorry for any mistakes. I didn't want to touch it because then I would accidentally start editing, it's ingrained.

I want you to be silent. I don't want a peep to interrupt how complete I feel right now. At this time in this moment there is nothing. There is silence and it is the last thing on earth that is pure. Not that look you are giving me now The look that makes everything go hazy The look that traps me in the beautiful terrible lovely scary promis that is you. Not the desire I feel fesh and Frey again when I glacne the strength of you and the preciseness of your walk. No Not even appreciation is pure on this rock anymore and for something so lovely to be lost is heartbreaking I would lament. But I have now I have your stare. Your silent reverent attention and everything is as bright and new as birth But just as scary Just as daunting I am thrown into a new world An unknown realm that I knew was there but never thought my mind My body would roam In our silence i realize I am in love. I have never been here I have never wanted to go But I live it and I refuse for my beautiful new world My terrible new existence to be marred my the sound of you my lover. I apologize I do It is not you that scares me It is not you that did anything wrong. But now I am devoted. I can't help it. Now I am tied. I can't help it. Now there is more to me There is worry and jealousy and rage like never before You made me feel And I can't bring mysel to resent you for snatching me out if my reverie. Of pulling me out of the bed of self centered idealism that I had so carefully woven for years I can't resent you because the effect of this, of us has already sink in I love you Don't say a word I see it there I need you Don't say a word I feel it here I love you Don't make a sound, you'll bring a tear I love you and in this silence In this moment where there is nothing and everything all at once I know that you love me too
