Love’s Horizon

Your Love’s Horizon is What I Want

The simplicity of what I want!

Tease me with a glance
Test my patience. That’s what I want!

Let’s bestow bliss on the pious
Seeing you face to face is what I want!

I am a speck of dust reaching for the sky
“You can’t behold,” is the command I want!

One day I will leave this gathering I love
Snuffed like a candle is not what I want!

I have told our secret in public
I have no manners. Scold me. That’s all I want!
