To Know Love – a poem

the flames in your eyes

cast a shadow o’er the moon

to cage my hunger


to cage my hunger

sights are set upon my heart

to bring to light fear


to bring to light fear

look into my weakened soul

for me     to know love


for me to know love

I’ll worship     your     every     breath

till the last      sun      sets
