{June 25, 2013}   Reckless

i can love you reckless
or not at all
but i can’t love you safe and sound
not from a distance
especially not up close
i can’t live on vanilla
and you’ve been starved for far too long
same as me
if my will be done
i will you here
defiant and wrapped around me
open and about to burst
ready for the long-haul
and you sinking deep into my soul
