my fingertips are burning
as the fire from within
shoots out of them like bullets
onto the keyboard
each word, each letter
bursting out of the volcano of my heart
erupting up past my shoulders,
through my arms
my wrists
my hands
to you

my emotional and logical sides at war
as always
more violently now

my logical side keeps me safe
builds my walls,
fills the cracks in them,
reinforces any weakened stone
reminds me of the times i have hurt others
the times i have been hurt
reminds me that people lie
mislead, misrepresent
it is my cautious side

my emotional side takes back over
i am in your arms
hundreds of miles away
i am tasting your lips
touching your cheek
staring into the eyes
of one who understands me
inspires me
adores me
the eyes of the one
i understand
i inspire
i adore

i push my logical side further away
i am in your bed
your body pressed against mine
your lips pressed against mine
you and i are the only two that exist
in this room
in this world
in this life.
it becomes the only thing left
after the understanding
during the inspirations
surpassing the adoration.
i look into the eyes
of the man i love,
the fire of his passion
matched in magnitude
only by the fire of my own.

my logic fails me completely
i am yours,
at your side,
and at your feet
you are my universe
and no matter how far i wander into it
i am never lost
because you are my center as well
you surround me from the depths of my soul
no matter how i scream and cry
how loud it is, how long, how hard,
you are there to comfort me
no matter how you scream and cry
how tortured, how silently,
i am there to comfort you

my logic is reborn
inside this love is safety
within it is the reassurance
the passion,
the end of nightmares
the beginning of dreams
i surround myself with your love
and wrap you in mine
you feel it when i kiss your lips in the morning
when i touch your thigh at a restaurant
when i surround you as we make love
my emotional side becomes my logical side
because with all of this comes the happiness
that logic could never deny me.
