You ask, “How do you want to be loved?”
I say, “kiss me; tell me I’m better than wine.
To hold my heart as if it were an egg
touch me so I know that you’re mine
Make my body immortalize your name.”
How do you want to be loved?
You ask with such worry on your lips
I say, “I want to live forever in your arms
and die at the same time by your kiss.”
“Heal my scars.”, I say.
“Show me that true love is kind;
that the hours are not met with decay
Tell me all you need is my time.”
I ask, “Can you ever love me this way?”
Face held as I am crying
“I will love you forever.”, he said.
“Or I will die trying.”
