About The Powerlessness And Uncertainty Of Giving Yourself Over To Love

I watch them fall

Petals on the floor

They flutter to the ground

As I try to figure out

If you have many layers

Or none

I close my eyes

To see you clearly

Your kiss leaves me breathless

As I try to figure out

If we are just beginning

or done

I feel myself

Fade to a whisper

The light passing through me

As I try to figure out

If I’m now part of you

Or gone.
