Bring Me All of You

 

 

I want all of you;

 

I want to sift through complexities

and soak in deep black fathoms

of your thought.

 

I want your fears,

your hopes,

your dreams;

the first thing

that you think

upon awaking.

 

I want the inner shouts

you muffle down,

and your passion at its wildest,

when it’s shocking.

 

I don’t want garden parties

or paper blossoms-

I want the beating heavy heart of you;

its sharpened worries.

 

I want to take all of it

all of it

into my bosom

and love it tenderly,

sewing up the pieces torn,

lavishing what I am

like a clove-filled salve

that stops the stinging.

 

My mind is strong and white;

my arms can bear

things that crush.

 

I want to love you, really.

 

Bring me more of you,

bring me backstage;

 

let me stand amidst your universe

 

and reaching,

kiss each star.
