Burn Me

Hesitations lurk in the corners
of my soul from
my doubts,
my fear of you.

I want to spend
a thousand lifetimes held within
your arms and yet,
I can’t help but wonder:
are those arms holding me back
from a greater destiny?

I want nothing more than love
in this life,
but I long for
the kiss that will surround me
like the wind in a thunderstorm.

I wonder if I am holding myself
back from you.

Give me all you have
and start my passion
on fire.
