I could lie and say "I love you."
But where would that lead?
To the realm that needs another lie.
I could tease and say "I want you."
That might achieve a moment of bliss
but that would fade and die in time.
I could taunt and say "I need you."
Would that open you up
for another prearranged line?
I want to know you before knowing
Speak the words without sound
Touch your darkest secret
And find that forbidden ground.
Allow me entrance and stay
in your heart's cathedral.
Show me the skies you paint
with the dreams in your soul.
Then and only then
I shall kneel before your altar
Kiss your sacred chalice
And attempt, your passion, to stir.
