I want to practice recklessness
I want to bare my heart to you.
I want to throw caution and fear
directly into the face of a fiercely blowing wind.
I want to write letters of declaration
place them in a bottle and toss them into the sea.
I want to sing in heaven’s highest refrain
of the glory of this love.
I want to take you into the warmth of my arms
and dance you across this room.
I want to stare into your crystalline eyes
and see the future through you.
In the moments that come, the moments that go,
I want to be presently awake and alive.
I want to abandon all doubt and reticent pain
and open myself up to you.
I want to run through fields, screaming your name
and set fireworks off on display.
I want to sing songs of my undying love for you
and carve your name into a tree.
I want to hold your hand as we walk together
I want to open doors and lead you through.
I want to build you a house and make you a home
and keep you safe and warm inside.
Reckless abandon, love unrestrained,
living each day as if it were the last.
Set free to love you wildly
I am bound only by truth.
