I want to be with you*

I want the sun to shine again.
I want to feel soft light
filter through my eyelids
before I open them.
I want there to be nothing between me
& feeling free.
I want to place my palm
on the trunk of an ancient tree,
throw my arms open wide
& absorb the wild power of the sea.
I want to see pure snow
from somewhere so high up
that I don’t feel the cold.
I want to laugh
because I’m so surprised.
I want to trust your existence
& mine.
I want to be free from the past
& not be afraid of
an interminable future,
because they’re not prisons
& we are not captives.
I want to tell you I love you
because somehow you are here too
& that’s some sort of miracle
& if I could believe;
maybe it’s meant to be.
I want to walk for miles
under transcendent skies,
following the mesmeric coast.
I want to have nowhere to go,
I want to learn how to go slow.
I want to be quiet,
I want to scream when I need it;
I mean no harm,
I just want to see stars.
I want to keep trying
even when I’m failing.
I want to look deep into your eyes,
I want to drink your smile.
I want to die,
without explaining why
because it’s ok that
nothing lasts forever.
I want to dream,
I want to know what it all means,
but even if I never do,
I want to be with you

          these lines:
          'I want to place my palm

          throw my arms open wide
          & absorb the wild power of the sea.'
          reminded me of one of my older posts
          ( https://mypoeticside.com/show-poem-123012 )
          this is a wonderful statement write, an affirmation of self, and a landmark
          to propel - forward from,
          leap forth, dear poet
          fly high!
          forget Icarus (we men could never multi task...) lol

            Thank you ❤

            My muse told me that in some parts of the world, if you want to make a sexual advance to someone, then you go & place your hand on a tree while looking at them provocatively. I thought it was interesting & I laughed cause I do this all the time x

              lmao!
              'behold: my sultry - come hither poses'
              'behold: my reciprocating - tree trunk, of a giggity reply......' 🐶
              (sorry for taking this somewhere lewd
              I try, but inside I'm barely much older than 6
              on a good day..) 😞

              I want to know if it is need?

              • rebmasters

                There's the quote from Erich Fromm:

                "Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you. ' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you. '"

                Honestly, I have no idea x

                You can really feel the tension building with every line. The flow and pace are phenomenal!

                • rebmasters

                  Thank you my friend ❤

                  That's very kind of you x
