Say You Love Me

“Opening up your soul to someone, letting them into your spirit, thoughts, fears, future, hopes, dreams… That is being naked.” ~ Rob Bell”

I Don’t Dance

He asked me to prom

Almost eight months in advance 

So eager to take me out

To see me in my best dress

So eager to love me

To introduce me to his mother

Who already loved me

Too soon,

I thought to myself

Love, again?

I couldn’t feel it

Or acknowledge it then

His heart outside of his chest

Beating for me

Like I was home

But the door was locked

And the key was gone

There was no room now

Every space filled with emptiness

I couldn’t stop feeling 

The dirtiness of fingerprints

That I let touch my soul

And rob me of whole

So I told him,

If you’re looking for my love

You won’t find it here

And I don’t mean to be cold

But I don’t dance anymore

About Me

– I am an ancient soul, in a modern body, with a futuristic state of mind.
