I Need…More

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

Me to you,

And you to me.

If the fire
And passion,
I see,
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,

I want you,


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…
