Without a weapon and just one blow
You can destroy even the strongest of men
Striking fear in the bravest heart

There is no way to take cover, though many try
No shade can be pulled, no curtain can be drawn
No shield thick enough to combat you

Like a child you repeatedly taunt and tease
Prowling close…when least expected
Familiar with your coyness, I refuse to give chase
For when eagerly sought, you are elusive

Choosing not to hide, for fleeting is futile
I linger patiently, fully exposed to your power
Keeping still and oh so silent
No stirring…
No denying…
My breath is held…
I feel you right beside me…

Your growing curiosity becomes more apparent
Your essence now fully engulfs me
A worthy soul has been uncovered
No need for trickery here

In the chambers of my heart
You find small pieces of your
Existence already residing within
Slowly you submerge yourself into my waiting smile
Tentatively testing the waters of compassion

I open further as you plunge deeper
Into the depths of my very being
Drinking greedily from your vessel with every fiber
I savor the glow that spreads within me

I am renewed…
My spirit soars and I sigh
Curled comfortably beneath the
Warmth of your blanket..
Protected by your embrace…
For love has at last found me…
