redemption

I smell liquor.
Malt liquor
off your mouth in a grey evening
standing close in a crisp white T-shirt,
staring into my eyes
hazel to teal.
//
I hear Nina Simone
from your playlist.
Your heated whisper “Because you’re mine.”
And you pull me into
those comforting arms of yours,
my only place to abide by.

I see temptation and need.
Your hoarse voice
echoing the lifeless walls of my room
“I need you so.”
//
I am on my knees now.
Your honesty disarms me,
your touch makes me reel like
I am a spiritual beast
in search of piety.

I sense fear
In your jagged breathing
with your head on my chest,
your arms encircling my waist.
My unsteady heartbeat not mirroring yours,
you look at me.
Searching for disclosure
my masked emotions deceiving you.

You take me at your pace.
Slowly, savouring every bit.
//

I will worship you
For you showed me the depth of walls of passion,
for you beguile me
and I let go
daring to fly, daring to be Icarus again.

And despite me being torn up,you have a wealth of love to give.
You didn’t run.
You chose to lay your world at my feet.
