i am looking

I have given in to love
no more will you find me holding
behind reams of razor wire any part of who I might be
if there’s a chance to embrace the sameness of you and I

I am looking beyond this flesh
into the depths of the whirling vortex that
is where your soul meets mine and I am holding still
so you can see me, so we can fill this time with all that matters
