Love letter # 161

I wanted to reach across the void tonight. I wanted to break the trance of wondering. It was in my bones, in my blood, in the tips of my fingers – the sheer power of you. I wanted you like certainty. Like all of history. My longing was like the earth itself – ancient and deep and seeming so much bigger than me. It carried me to the brink. Our hands nearly touching. Breathing in time.

Then – just when …

So I’m saying it like this instead – because I want you so much I can barely talk. Scarcely lift a hand. Maybe I’m scared you’ll say no. Maybe I’m terrified of yes. For it will not be just a kiss. A kiss will spark a fire – and who knows what will burn.
