I gaze as the moon shimmers across his naked body
lost in the thought of who he is and
how blessed I am he's in my life,
And how it is that this passion is hotter than it was in the beginning.
This man lying in my bed emanating strength and power
boldly going where no man has gone before
by taking a chance on me and loving me
totally, unconditionally, wholly.
Oh! Those who have no clue
and those who mock the ties that bind
and those who say their love is real
without those little pieces of paper.
It is far easier to cohabitate than it is
to swear eternal allegiance before God,
mean it by fighting for it,
tearing out those little things that work to destroy your forever.
Hah! You fool yourself
and you do not know
the passions that come from total and complete
Trust founded on a Word far stronger
than even the sweetest “I love you but…”
You can not know what you have not known
and I do,
feel so sorry for you.
