My Poison, My Passion - Poem by Collette Anderson Williams

My very essence
I would give to you.
You ignite every fibre
of my being
and leave such
insatiable desires within me.

Can one love so intensely -
releasing unfathomable
scars at the corners of one's
mind & thoughts?
Can one give so freely, so openly
to such imperfect yet perfect a being?

I wrestle with my emotions
so deep they continue to tread -
I long to hollow out the words,
'I love you'
without scaring you away!

Moreover, my heart aches
to have you echo those very words -
I long to have you hold me
for keeps,
but you remain my welcomed emotion -
My Poison, My Passion!
