 60. Connected
I want to
Connect with you.
I am willing
To show you
Everything,
My sexual thoughts
My dreams
Hopes
Desires,
Fears,
All of it…
Rather than
Hold anything
Back
So that I can
Stay together
With you
Longer
Before you find out
Who I really am.

Safety is a lie
We tell ourselves
To put bricks
And mortar
In the walls
Around our hearts.

Pain comes
From the inside out,
So the only thing
We keep out
With the walls
Is love.

There are no
Guarantees.
Life is messy,
Full of the
Mystery of
The unknown,
Which is beautiful,
But
The advertising of
Our culture
Has better press
Than the truth
Does,
So all we know
Are the lies
Of fatalism.

So you see,
Connection
Is
Everything,
Love,
Life,
Happiness,
Joy…
With you
In it
With me,
With us,
All together.

I'm willing
To risk
Your rejection
And judgment
Because
I know
Deep down
Inside,
You are just
As afraid
Of being
Rejected
And judged
As anyone else,
Myself included,
But…
I want to connect
MORE
Than I am
Afraid
Of being
Rejected,
And hearing
Or feeling
That possible
Moment of
“No.”

Because…

On the other side
Of it,
Is joy,
Love expressed,
Connection,
Acceptance
Of every little
Thing,
Good or otherwise
That we could
Both be
Together,
When we are
Connected.
