adoration

Shhh
The more you struggle
the deeper the rope cuts
(it’s a fact of life – like quicksand)
I only want to talk
Yes, just like this
You, on the floor
Me, kneeling in front of you
In adoration.

I’ve always liked your eyes
The fleck of color that
Is an accident of genes
(it’s a fact of science – like skin tones)
I just want to see you see me
Yes, just like this
You, staring in disbelief
Me, kneeling in front of you
In adoration.

Of course
It’s about love
Now you understand my helplessness
(it’s a fact of emotion – like rapture)
I want you to understand
Yes, just like this
You, knotted by metaphor
Me, kneeling in front of you
In adoration.

I’ll let you go
If you let me go
It’s funny like that
(it’s a fact of circumstance– like epiphany)
Yes, just like this
You, bargaining freedom
Me, kneeling in front of you
In adoration.

No, please don’t cry
Don't break my heart
I'm saving myself for you
