i need you to challenge me
my assumptions
my noise
and even my quiet –
not serene silence
but hiding, razor-like
prick-ly voids…
i need you to hold me
hold space for me
throw fuel in the furnace
if ever it’s reduced
to a pilot flame…
i need you to reflect for me
never to bullshit me
with pleasantry
to stand your ground
and trust our souls
will synchronize
behind our eyes…
i need you to love me
as i love you
openly, curiously
i need you…
