i am astounded by your brilliance,
surrounded by a luminescence, a magnetism
your eyes, they glitter with knowledge (laughter)
an omniscience, an open window.
i hear your laugh,
a victorious exclamation of hilarity –
everyone knows you, they yearn to be within you,
i don’t think you’re comfortable with being the sun,
you feel as though you burn too bright,
flames disintegrating those who come too close.
those who depend on the brilliance you emanate.
but that is who you are.
an enlightenment of masculinity,
i want to submerge myself in you,
i want to taste your flame,
luminous, by your side.
being near you kind of makes my heart shake.
that’s what you do.
– i know you’ll break me, but i need to feel alive. you do.
