I Need…More

“Casual”
Doesn’t satisfy me.

Fleeting consideration
Of commitment,
Is not what drives me.

What I find precious,
And perfect,
And pure,

Is not the passing,
The accidental,
The “can’t remember your name,”
Morning after.

What I find precious,
And perfect,
And pure,

Is a steadiness.

Is a complete connection.

Is an undeniable
Obligation…

Me to you,

And you to me.

If the fire
And passion,
I see,
Now,
In your eyes…

Will be an afterthought
Tomorrow morning…

If those burning emotional embers
Will die,
And only leave ashes,
In the distance
Of your rearview mirror…

Let’s stop this touch,
Now.

Yes,
I want you,

Badly…

But not just for this night.

I need you
To see a horizon,
So many years in our future…

With me.

I need a depth.

I need a never-ending burn.

I need…

More.
