For so long you had resided quietly in my soul,

Rearing your head only to reassure me of your presence there.

Asking nothing of me, but acknowledgement.

Biding your time... Waiting...


I was aware of your love, in all its various guises,

But fooled myself into believing I could live without it.

But it grew, un-nurtured, until it overwhelmed me and

I realized it had never been, and never would be, a one-sided affair.


My eyes were finally ripped open

As my soul was torn apart and laid bare... vulnerable.

Now as I lay here, raw and bleeding,

I realize I could never have lived without the intensity I feel.


The strength and force of your love still terrifies me,

But no more than the depth of my love for you.

You are so much a part of me; so irrevocably entwined are our souls,

That I cannot even contemplate survival without you inside of me.


Should you tear yourself out of me

I would have no choice but to lay bleeding and waiting

For the fires to consume me as violently and passionately

As you haunt me, and always have.
