I Crave

I want to know
Every piece of you
To touch your tragedies
And trace your rough edges
Going as far as I can
Extending down into the inner bindings of you
Walking through the darkness until I find
The light that I see glimpses of daily
I know that with your defences down
There will still be shards left for me to step on
Remnants of damage that others inflicted
It's okay because you can't just dismiss it
So I will submit to the wrath of the blade
That threatens to banish my tearing down of your walls
It has permission to extract blood from my veins
Should it dean me unworthy of holding you close
I am confident that I will handle you with care
Because all I know how to give are feelings
And all I want to fight for is happiness
Allow me to give you reason to believe
I'll treat your cuts with tenderness
And tend to aches that constrain you
Care for your fragments wholeheartedly
And soothe the nervous rhythm of your heart
Through gentle delicate caress
I long to assuage your fears
Each worry can become mine
Let my hands lift them from your mind
We can enter a place
Where two souls touch
And merge in unified glow
Bound by ropes of affection
Caught in emotional high
Tying your beginning to my end
Swallowing up your stress and anguish
Calming internal commotion
Lose yourself to my warmth
Bask in the softness that I offer
Soar far above this world with me
Ride these waves of pure bliss
Taste the sweetness of devotion
That has fallen upon my lips
Consume all that's beneath the mask
Surrender to these heartfelt drips
Then while the lingering scent of genuine emotion
Coats your skin as well as the air you breathe
And each breath you take
Renews your hope for better days
I will dress you in the fabrics of my adoration
And leave you clothed in the profundity of connection we share
Wearing the same thing, you and I
As one underneath surface layers

Cloak your pain to the world
But know my arms are where you can lay
Wish I could take your troubles away

That's all that I crave
